Avocado watering needs ?
Hello all - I have a question regarding how much water is needed/best for growing avocados Here on the Andalusian Southcoast (Competa)
We have a small plot of land with about 100 mature trees and plenty of agricultural water for them - But am in doubt just HOW much water the trees need month by month during the year.
Right now each tree has 6 pieces of drip-jets each jet giving 4 Liter/Hourly.
Have been talking to an agrarian and he said (with our system) to water 3 hours every day in July/August - It translates then to 6 x 4 x 100 x 3 = 7200 liter each day which I find a bit excessive even for the 2 hottest month's ?
(Sept/Oct he said - 2 hours every day )
I simply find it too much - But what do I know....?
I will be glad for any information regarding water-needs/quantities/month
