Abstract/Contents:"Climatologically based control systems measure evapotranspiration, yet often fail to quantify effective rainfall. Many parts of the country receive more rain than ET. For control systems to effectively manage landscape irrigation, both ETc and effective rainfall need to be quantified. Effective rain is the amount of rain which is useful to the plant. Several factors must be considered to quantify effective rain. Rain that falls faster than the soil can absorb may run off. Soil moisture holding capacity is limited by soil type and root depth. Soil moisture holding capacity and current moisture content limit the amount of useful rain. This report will identify each of the factors that limit the effectiveness of rain and will offer a method to quantify rain that will be useful to plants. By implementing this process, water managers can determine when irrigation should resume after it rains to more effectively eliminate wasteful over-watering."
