Frequently asked questions about irrigating citrus

How much irrigation water should I apply to citrus?

This depends on the age of the trees, the time of year, the variety and the amount of rain that you get. As a general rule, it may vary from about 1000 L per tree per month in winter to about 5000 L per tree per month in summer. The most reliable way to work out how much water to apply is to use a soil moisture monitoring device. The three most common ones are tensiometers, neutron probes and Enviroscans.
