Scheduling irrigation is about planning when and how much water to apply to a crop to achieve crop production or a particular quality. The principles of scheduling water apply to all crops, however the critical timing, methods and techniques can vary with the crop.

This book is about:

·      the ways in which specific crops respond to stress and the effects of the timing and degree of stress and the growth stage of the crop

·      evapotranspiration (ET) and  crop water use to schedule irrigations

·      developing an irrigation schedule

·      terms used to describe the amount of water available to a crop

·      soil moisture probes and where to locate them

·      water quality issues to consider.
