With proper irrigation, the soil before watering
will be moist enough to prevent plant wilt.
Due to this - individual waterings need to provide:
  gallons
To saturate soil when totally dry gallons.
Calculations for drip due to it's capacity for
superior moisture distribution.


This Plant & Soil Type will likely require
annual irrigation cycles.
Based on this, in a warm dry climate
The annual water cost estimate:
Annual rainfall greater than 12" will reduce this
