Abstract: This study was undertaken to determine and have the information on runoff volume that could be available for water reuse in cultivating crops. This information might help in decision making for water budgeting and achieving the best water management in crop cultivation practices. This research was conducted in the agricultural research station of Alabama A&M University in Hazel Green, Alabama. A part of the total research station, an area of 40.82 ha belongs to the Agronomy and Crop Science was selected with the hydrologic soil group of C and B of 24.49 and 16.33 ha, with land use pattern of straight row and small grain straight row, respectively. Both the land areas were in good conditions. Runoff volume was calculated by the SCS method and found to be 1.40 ha-m. Rainfall information as reported in earlier works and other related information and their applications were found to be suitable.
