Drip Irrigation l/hr conversion to mm/hr


#1

Hi all,
I use drip irrigation with drip nozzles along the pipe which show their precipitation as l/hr. In many cases its 2l/hr. How do I take that into account on the Iro’s nozzle configuration which expects a mm/hr input?

Thanks

Basically mm/hr is an water application rate that measures how much water is being applied to a given area. The area is usually measured in sq. meters and the flow in l/hr. Washington State University has a web page that does the calculation for you. mm/hr calculator
