Research Project: Improving pomegranate fertigation and nitrogen use efficiency with drip irrigation systems

Location: Water Management Research

Project Number: 2034-13000-011-19-R
Project Type: Reimbursable Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jan 1, 2013
End Date: Jan 31, 2016

Determine real time seasonal nitrogen requirements to improve FUE of mature pomegranates using drip and subsurface drip irrigation. Determine required level of nitrogen to maintain N levels in mature pomegrantes. Determine effect of N fertilization on macronutrient concentrations.

The project will use a complete randomized design of 2 irrigation treatments and 3 fertilization treatments with 5 replications. The water requirement will be determined by weighing lysimeter and the fertiliztion will be determined by tissue sampling. This is a field project on 2 acres.
