evaporation and transpiration

Transpiration and irrigation systems

Irrigation systems which apply water frequently to crops (drip, center Pivot, and solid set sprinkler irrigation systems) can mantain relatively constant, high soil moisture levels in the soil. Therefore they contribute to higher transpiration rates.

Factors in deciding to chemigate

Some factors should be considered when deciding to chemigate through a center-Pivot irrigation system: soil type, center-Pivot location, topography, drift and runoff potential, machine characteristics, calibration…
