Irrigating Citrus & Avocados

Citrus & Avocados

Successfully growing citrus and avocados requires a high-uniformity irrigation system with a light application rate and reliable operation. Innovative Nelson Rotator® products like the R5 Pop-Up with Flow Control Nozzle technology make this level of performance a reality. Use it in conjunction with Control Valves and the Nelson TWIG® Wireless Control System for system automation. Solid Set is the system of choice, and it is greatly enhanced by the flexibility and ease of installation of Nelson's family of Feedtube Assemblies.




The R5 Rotator Pop-up provides Full Coverage Irrigation, which solves many problems associated with drip and other micro sprinklers. Benefits of Full Coverage Irrigation include:

  • Reduced stress to improve fruit size
  • Activation of fertilizers and herbicides
  • Improved nutrient availability
  • Improved infiltration to reduce disease potential

It's important to irrigate at key phenological times (such as flowering or fruiting — which is followed by accelerated fruit growth). Use Full Coverage Irrigation to "reach the roots" at these critical times.
