The most common method used for scheduling orchard irrigation is ‘experience’. While this can be reasonably accurate in delivering tree water requirements, it is not so useful when it comes to creating a ‘water budget’ for a season.

This water budget can then be used to plan water management strategies under different scenarios. For example, what is the irrigation requirement if deficit irrigation or post-harvest cut-off are used? If allocations are low, can I maintain irrigation levels to some priority blocks? A computer spreadsheet is available from Agriculture Victoria to aid growers in creating seasonal water budgets and this article describes the basis of the calculations therein. read more...
