A model for calculating the uniformity of applications from lateral move irrigation

, : A model for calculating the uniformity of applications from lateral move irrigation. Conference on agricultural engineering Proceedings of a conference held at Hawkesbury, Richmond, NSW, Australia, 25-30 September 1988: 173-177

The sources and significance of spatial variations in the depths of water applied over fields irrigated by lateral move irrigation machines are discussed. A model for calculating the uniformity of applied depths from lateral move machines is described, incorporating all the factors which influence applied depths. The grid spacing to be used in the calculations and its relationship to the plant root zone extent are covered.

The uniformity of applications by lateral move and similar irrigation machines is traditionally evaluated from one or more transects of samples taken across the travel path of the machine. The number and spacing of samples is usually determined fr...
