This Excel spreadsheet allows the entry of data for preparing an irrigation system catch can assessment report. The user can enter details on operating pressure, wind speed, wind direction, catch can diameter and system information, and can obtain test results to help make decisions on irrigation system performance.
Drip irrigation is an efficient system for applying water to nursery container production. It has the potential to out-perform overhead irrigation systems in achieving optimum plant growth and quality, while minimising water use.
