AE436: Summary of UF/IFAS Turf and Landscape Irrigation Recommendations

Figure 2. Spring 2007 example of 60% time-based irrigation schedule (AE220 60% Central FL) compared to theoretical irrigation requirements based on a daily soil water balance (SWB Irrig). Irrigation system had a rain sensor set at 0.25" threshold. Note that from 4/15 through 5/1 a broken rain sensor resulted in no irrigation application.
