The total sprinkler irrigation amount is partitioned by the crop canopy into three major components: stemflow, throughfall, and interception storage. A study of the partitioning process by a fully developed corn canopy under low wind conditions was conducted. Nearly 3000 measurements of stemflow were made over the course of 23 irrigation/precipitation events using 240 different plants during the two years of the study. At the same time, nearly 300 measurements of the throughfall were made… CONTINUE READING
