ENH1268: Monitoring Leaching Fraction for Irrigation Scheduling in Container Nurseries

Figure 2. Containers of sprinkler-irrigated plants are placed inside similar-sized hole-less containers to collect leachate (drainage) during LF testing. A PVC ring or other object that elevates the plant container is placed at the bottom of the hole-less container to allow drainage to occur without reabsorption.
