Özet

In this study, the existing drip irrigation systems of 20 cherry (Prunus avium L.) orchards in Isparta-Uluborlu (Turkey) region where cherry production is done intensively were evaluated with selected by purposive sampling method; were examined in terms of design and operation; problems related to the subject were determined. For this reason, drip and under tree micro sprinkler irrigation system was re-projected for each enterprise, elements of both irrigation systems compared with the present applications, and suggestions for both irrigation systems and irrigation scheduling are developed. As a result, it has been found that the system elements generally had not been designed properly, and the system layouts and operations were insufficient in all of the existing drip irrigation systems considered. Suggestions for both irrigation systems and irrigation scheduling are developed.
