If you thought that after more than 250 mm rain in three days during the beginning of the winter you can stop worrying about irrigating your citrus, avocados, or other persistent orchards for several weeks, you’re wrong!
The image shows the trunk fluctuations (green line) of a clementine orchard in central Israel where, during the last weekend, it rained 100mm every day. As can be seen, less than two days after the rain ended, the soil started to show a decrease in its moisture and the trunk started to show its regular daily contraction patterns. These two parameters indicate that irrigation should be renewed. The GBI algorithm that SupPlant applies to different species all around the world also deals with these and other special situations.
