Irrigation of Hass Avocado Trees

The best time to irrigate is in the early morning hours and /or late evening.
Watering during the day can be wasteful due to evaporation.
Avocados require 8000-9000m3 per Ha for the whole year, including water supply from rain.
The avocado trees have varied moisture requirement in amount depending on the prevailing physiological stage.
Aspects/stages directly influenced by optimal water regime on avocados include; Flowering, fruit set, fruit drop fruit sizing and fruit quality.
In central region, 50-60m3 suffices to supply adequate moisture to 1Ha of avocados in a 2 week cycle of irrigation in dry periods.
In a week, 50-75 liters being applied per tree will supply adequate moisture to support the tree during peak demands.
