Abstract
In trials at Hofuf, Saudi Arabia shelter from date-palm branches increased yields of lucerne and Rhodes grass grown in an irrigated arid zone environment. The two species showed different responses according to season. Unsheltered areas showed 33% higher evaporation during July-Aug. than sheltered areas.
