, horticultural producers need to find ways to improve irrigation efficiency, including reusing runoff for irrigation. In 2015, irrigation accounted for 37% of total water use in the United States ( Maupin, 2018 ). Horticulture is a major sector of U

, microirrigation, and reusing runoff water ( Mathers et al., 2005 ). Growers need to have adequate knowledge about water conservation techniques before they will adopt them ( Rockwell and Bennett, 2004 ). The innovation-decision process explains why people will

An increasing number of greenhouses are reusing nutrient solutions in their operations to protect the environment and save water and fertilizer ( Richard et al., 2006 ). One major concern of this practice is the risk of dispersal of soil- and water

al., 2000 ). One option for alternative water supply is the sequential reuse of runoff water to irrigate increasingly salt-tolerant plants ( Su et al., 2005 ). In this system, the runoff water collected from one crop is used to irrigate a more salt
