ISHS Acta Horticulturae 607: IX International Symposium on Timing of Field Production in Vegetable Crops

SELECTING IRRIGATION SYSTEMS FOR VEGETABLE CROPS IN BRAZIL

Authors:   W.L.C. Silva, W.A. Marouelli
Keywords:   irrigation systems, irrigation efficiency, selection criteria, economic analysis
Abstract:
Vegetable crop yield and quality may be strongly influenced by the irrigation system. Although sprinkle irrigation systems are the most used in Brazil, no system can be considered adequate for all conditions. The correct irrigation system selection depends upon technical and economical analysis. A brief description and usage of the main irrigation systems are presented in this paper and the major factors affecting vegetable crop irrigation adequacy and performance are discussed. A simplified selection methodology is presented and a case study is shown for better understanding of the proposed procedure.
