Pear irrigation systems can have challenges such as low pressure, run off, too much or too little water and clogging filters resulting in pears with cork or small size. As part of a larger project which includes research into optimum irrigation timing and quantity for pears we have identified several common challenges to irrigation in pears and conducted case studies looking at irrigation upgrades designed to address these challenges. Take a look at the results from the first two case studies here.
