Irrigation scheduling

Based on the calculations you have done for irrigations shifts, you will have determined how many shifts you require, and how many hours for each shift.

You can now schedule your irrigation, which depends on numerous factors such as soil type, crop type, and system configuration.

Below are two examples of three shift operations, one with three shifts per day, and one with one shift per day.

The calculations that we have made so far have been daily requirements. However, the previous formulas can be calculated to per week values so you can create a weekly water schedule, unless you plan to irrigate all shifts every day.

Remember that the system has been designed to meet the peak requirement. There will be periods where the system can run for shorter periods as the irrigation demand is lower due to crop life stage and weather conditions.
