Spatial and temporal variations in salinity and boron content were measured in a field in the San Joaquin Valley of California that was managed according to a drainage reduction strategy based on shallow groundwater management. As has been found elsewhere in arid and semiarid irrigated areas, the measured soil boron content was directly related to salinity for all soil depths. This linear correlation also extended to the shallow groundwater. This attributed to their sharing of a common origin, namely the alluvium derived from sedimentary marine deposits of the coast range of mountains on the western side of the San Joaquin Valley. Boron was found to show greater time stability than salinity or leaching fraction. The areas with the highest boron time stability were the same areas showing the greatest salinity stability.
