Specifying Irrigation Needs for Container-Grown Plants

A study at the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences examined the efficiency of irrigation schedules used for container-grown plants to determine if they could be improved with specific daily adjustments.

Jeff Million and Tom Yeager conducted two experiments to monitor the effect of irrigation schedules on plant growth and water usage.

The researchers present their findings in their article “Periodic Versus Real-time Adjustment of a Leaching Fraction-based Microirrigation Schedule for Container-grown Plants” published in the open-access journal HortScience published by the American Society for Horticultural Science.
