dc.description.abstract Irrigation scheduling prevents over application of water, while minimizing crop yield loss due to drought stress. In humid regions, the application of irrigation water at regular intervals results in over-irrigation, and waste of water and energy. The use of the soil water balance model overcomes this issue. Through measurement of the soil water retention curves, as well as installation of the agro-meteorological stations at the pilot sites, accurate daily irrigation requirements and frequency are determined. Drip irrigation provides farmers with the possibility of year-round crop production. en
