Rainout shelter for tall crop irrigation research

, : Rainout shelter for tall crop irrigation research. Applied Engineering in Agriculture 2(2): 137-140

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.

To eliminate the effects of erratic rainfall, which have limited field studies on drought stress, we designed and constructed a relatively large (12.2 X 12.2 m), lightweight shelter that prevents rain from falling on a field plot area. The design...
