HO-122
Go with the Flow: Simple Calculations for Drip Irrigation
5/10/2019 (new)

 UK Authors: Brent Rowell
 Departments: Horticulture
 Series: Horticulture (HO series)
 Tags: equipment and structures

While drip irrigation is relatively easy, information about drip irrigation is often more complicated and confusing than it needs to be. Well-meaning professors and engineers use terms like "head" and "flow rate" without explaining exactly what they mean and how they are used. And it's often difficult to get help planning a small farm system in states without large irrigated acreages and irrigation traditions. The purpose of this bulletin is to help farmers understand the simple calculations involved in designing a small drip irrigation system.

HO-120
Off the Grid: Ultra-Low Pressure Drip Irrigation and Rainwater Catchment for Small Plots and High Tunnels
1/24/2018 (new)

 UK Authors: Krista Jacobsen, Brent Rowell
 Departments: Horticulture
 Series: Horticulture (HO series)
 Tags: equipment and structures, high tunnel

All forms of irrigation need a push or pressure to move water from its source to its destination. Water sources include wells, springs, lakes, creeks, canals, rivers, cisterns, elevated tanks, or municipal water supplies. The amount of pressure or push required depends on many things including the height water must be lifted, length and size of the delivery pipe(s), crop and size of the area to be irrigated, and the distance water needs to be moved from the source to the field, greenhouse, or tunnel.
