Event Registration - Using the Indicator Plant Method to Calculate Drip Emitter Requirements
Tuesday, February 09, 2021
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
The typical landscape bed is designed with plants having different irrigation water requirement, yet they are all on one irrigation zone. This course will use the indicator plant method of selecting the flow and quantity of emitters per plant-water-use type to apply the required amount of water for each plant. This method can also be used for line source drip and even mixing different types of overhead irrigation. (Don't tell the irrigation police!) This webinar is worth one CEU in the Tier 1 - Irrigation Training category.
