A new irrigation/plant production system, Multi-Pot Box System (MPBS), was field-evaluated during the two growing seasons (summer and fall, 2001) for efficient use of irrigation and rainfall for container nursery plant production. The system was compared to the conventional system (CS) irrigated with overhead sprinklers. Viburnum odoratissimum (Ker-Gawl.) was grown as a test plant. The following treatments were imposed: (i) three white color MPBSs with side-mount water level switches… CONTINUE READING
