2021-09-13 Irrigated soybeans in the LTER Irrigated Resource Gradient Experiment (Irrigated N-rate Study). Equipment used: Valley 8000 Linear Irrigation System. Amount of water applied: 0.6 inch of water was applied (as measured by six rain gauges). Irrigation system delay setting: 36; Irrigation pressure: 23 psi; Pressure at the pump: 50 psi. Time of application was between 1:05 p.m. - 2:25 p.m. Weather conditions at the start (weather update at 12:50 p.m.): mostly cloudy, 69.7 degrees F, wind 1-8 mph (3m high 5 minute average wind speed was 1.00 mph) from the northeast, relative humidity 89.1%. Weather conditions at the end (weather update at 2:25 p.m.): mostly cloudy, 69.4 degrees F, wind 5-15 mph (3m high 5 minute average wind speed was 7.36 mph) from the east, relative humidity 83.2%. Total gallon of water used in this irrigation event (as measure by a in-line water meter): 33,633.8 gallons. Water meter to start: 4314235.0; Water meter to end: 4347868.8; Average gallons per minute (on the water meter) during the irrigation event: 426 gallons per minute.
