When managing a micro-irrigation system, keep the following points in mind:
- Design the irrigation system to cover 50 to 75% of the total land area. More coverage commonly promotes better growth and yields.
- Use the table as a guide for irrigation frequency and duration. Modify the schedule as needed to fit your particular soil type and irrigation system.
- Reduce deep percolation by increasing frequency and decreasing length of the irrigation cycle. Since most of the roots are in the upper 2 - 4 feet of the soil profile, irrigation for long durations can lead to loss of water below the root zone.
