A study was initiated in Fall 2006 in Raleigh, North Carolina to compare two types of commercially available irrigation control technologies, one based on estimates of evapotranspiration (ET) and the other based on feedback from soil moisture sensors. Water applied and turf quality from one ET-based system and two sensor-based systems were compared to a system using a standard time-based irrigation schedule. The effect of irrigation frequency was also a part of the study. Estimates of turf ET…

LANDSCAPE IRRIGATION WITH EVAPOTRANSPIRATION CONTROLLERS IN A HUMID CLIMATE

The objective of this article is to present summary findings of multiple research studies concerning evapotran- spiration (ET) controllers. Each study provided unique information concerning the

The Use of Soil-Water Sensors in Turf Irrigation Control — How Effective Are They?

Soil-Water sensor controllers have been used since the mid-1990s to manage turf irrigation. While evapotranspriation (ET) based controllers have been more widely adopted for turf and landscape

This paper presents a methodology to develop an irrigation system that determines the amount of water to be provided based on water loss due to evapotranspiration (ET) process and is anticipated that the proposed irrigation model would help in reducing water usage without compromising its produce.

Reducing water consumption for residential turfgrass with adaptive irrigation controllers

It has been estimated that 50-75% of residential water use is for irrigation [Deg07]. Current domestic systems are poor at adapting irrigation to meet demand, primarily due to incomplete information

Estimates of Savings Achievable from Irrigation Controller

This paper performs a literature review and meta-analysis of water savings from several types of advanced irrigation controllers: rain sensors (RS), weather-based irrigation controllers (WBIC), and

Design of a passive irrigation controller for efficient water use in low-income countries

The design of a passive automated irrigation controller that uses standard PVC fittings locally available to the authors' community partner in Nicaragua has the potential to greatly reduce water usage in drip irrigation systems.

Minimizing amortized cost of the on-demand irrigation system in smart farms

An on-demand irrigation scheduling system which considers not only hourly numerical weather prediction to avoid over-irrigation but also TOU price model of electricity to minimize irrigation cost is proposed.
