Numerical Design Procedure for Micro-Irrigation Manifolds

A completely numerical design procedure for micro-irrigation manifolds was developed based on a variation of the hydraulic grade line method. The procedure determines pipe diameters and lengths for telescoping manifolds to minimize pressure variations and improve discharge uniformity. A computer ... Read More

Turfgrass ET from Small Lysimeters in Northeast Colorado

Small weighing lysimeters were planted to 11 different turfgrass varieties in 2010. Only one of the 11 turfgrasses selected was warm-season, the remaining 10 were cool-season.
There are four replicates of each turfgrass. Results are compared to ETos calculated from an adjacent weather stati... Read More
