Rainout shelter for tall crop irrigation research

Applied Engineering in Agriculture 2(2): 137-140
Rainout shelter for tall crop irrigation research
A high rise rainout shelter was built for excluding rain and groundwater percolation during intensive irrigation research on tall crops such as maize and tobacco. The shelter has an open design, an undisturbed soil profile, a data acquisition system, automatic operation depending upon the weather and an overall head clearance of 2.55 m.
