Maximum run time for sprinkling irrigation

, : Maximum run time for sprinkling irrigation. Microirrigation for a changing world: conserving resources/preserving the environment Proceedings of the Fifth International Microirrigation Congress, Orlando, Florida, USA, 2-6 April, 1995: 288-291

Although sprinkler irrigation has been used in landscapes for some time, the maximum run time per watering without runoff is an unsolved problem. An equation to calculate the maximum run time and number of cycles when using repeated irrigation cycles is introduced. The equation is based on the concept of the precipitate volume of water from the sprinkling irrigation system and the soil infiltration capacity curve.
