The best irrigation schedule is less valuable if the irrigation system is in disrepair and, the best irrigation system can waste water if scheduled poorly.
So the answer to our question for precision irrigation is, they must be addressed together. Fortunately for us, this webinar covers the topic of both irrigation scheduling and distribution uniformity.
In addition, Inge Bisconer and Tom Devol share with us a handy field slide rule tool to estimate run times based on local evapotranspiration and to estimate the cost of poor uniformity.
During this webinar, you will learn:
- Basic irrigation scheduling: determine how many hours a day to irrigate by estimating how much water your crop needs (inches per day) and calculating how much the irrigation system applies (inches per hour),
- The cost of poor DU from: reduced yields, increased water and fertilizer costs
