Soil type vs flex daily watering schedule


#1

Hey All,

I did a soil test and am right on the edge between loam and sandy loam. I’m not sure which I should choose. What generally happens to the daily flex sched between those two? Thanks!

Take the one with the slowest penetration rate to be on the safe side. You might want to use the soil database to set your awc correctly, let us know if you need help

So on AWC dial it back to .15? Or did you mean something different?

If that is what the soil database says, then yea, but select clay, the soil type estimates awc, but is most important for defining absorption rate this runoff. If you can find the awc pm me your street address and I’ll get it for,you.
