|Irrigation System Contribute To Rapids Croups Growth by Ayoade333: 3:43am On Aug 26, 2021|
IRRIGATION SYSTEM STRATEGY in a dry season
The following strategy is suggested if irrigation water entitlements are low:
Consider installing a drip irrigation system to save water.
Before the season starts, set out a water budget for each irrigation block on a monthly basis that uses long-term irrigation requirements, incorporates RDI strategies, assumes no effective summer rainfall.
On a regular basis review water allocation, long-term rain forecasts and market potential for each cultivar.
If there's not enough irrigation water available, decide on one of the following strategies:
Irrigate at a deficit for the entire season and suffer a fruit size loss. Heavier thinning will offset some of the loss in fruit size.
Do not irrigate lower productivity blocks and de-blossom or even pollard (main limbs cut in half or pruned even lower) to reduce water needs. Wound dressing must be applied to these larger pruning cuts. Alternatively, some older trees may be close to being non-viable. This might be a good time to pull them out earlier than planned and transfer the water to productive blocks of trees to ensure some commercially viable fruit can be harvested.
