Daily fluctuations in weather conditions can vary up to 300 percent in summer and, in winter, plants can sometimes go for days without irrigation. If the irrigation schedule is not adjusted to take these variations into account, water use will be excessive, leading to excessive leaching of nutrients, poor plant growth, leaf drop, poor internode spacing, excessive drainage and elevated or contaminated water tables.
