  • Determining the Transpiration Rate of Peach Trees Under Two Trickle Irrigation Regimes 

    Reeder, E. L.; Van Bavel, C. H. M.; Rodrigue, P. B.; Newton, R. J.; Brown, K. W.; Reddell, D. L.; McFarland, M. J.; Howell, T. A. (Texas Water Resources Institute, 1980-12)
    The scientific design and management of a modern irrigation system requires that the designer or manager have knowledge of site and plant criteria such as infiltration, drainage, soil fertility, plant water needs, and plant ...
  • Management of Trickle Irrigated Orchards for Increased Water Use Efficiency 

    Worthington, J. W.; Rodrigue, P. B.; Punthakey, J. F.; McFarland, M. J. (Texas Water Resources Institute, 1982-08)
    Trickle irrigation is the most efficient method of irrigating peach orchards in Texas. With a trickle irrigation system, a producer may make full use of a limited or low-volume water supply to apply precise amounts of water ...
  • Plant Responses of Drip Irrigated Trees to Climate and Water Stress 

    Worthington, J. W.; Rodrigue, P. B.; McFarland, M. J.; Punthakey, J. F. (Texas Water Resources Institute, 1982-08)
    Past irrigation research has shown that peach (prunus persica) trees vary in their field response to water stress, and the degree of stress is a function of the plants' environment. Water deficits reduce plant growth and ...
