Hi, I have my new Iro and i’m trying to put in place some best practice on how many times and for how long i need to water my zones.
Let me give you a brief description of my scenario here…
I have 4 zones. 2 of them are focused on flower beds and have a specific picture of a dripper (red one) and have some mixed trees, lemon, mango, papaya etc.
the 2 other zones are a mix of grass and date palm trees. each zone gets 3 date palm trees and an area of grass making a total of 6 date palm trees and a patch of grass. in general 100 sqm.
For the grass i have a specific sprinkler (pictrue below) and for the palm trees i have another. the sprinklers are fixed and i believe the amount of water is the same (no option to change) and for the palm trees i have an option to open more or less. not sure if the amount of water changes or just the pressure.
Everything in the soil is sand.
When i program the irrigation schedules on the Iro it suggests me LONG Times per zone and before i was using rates or 3-5 minutes and 3 times a day.
as a reference, i live in Dubai and i’m using the weather station of the airport (17km distance) and it doesn’t rain here ever… (5 days a year)
I want to check if this is a good way (different) to do irrigation or if i should program manually to the 3-5 minutes which i used to use before when i have an old system.
