How much water is required for healthy vines and growth?

Fayette County Texas

Expert Response

There are many factors that impact how much we would irrigate vines. The first is what kind of vine, are we producing fruit and what stage of production. The other impact is soil type (some soils hold moisture better than others), temperatures, and how much rainfall have we been receiving.

Monitor the soil, and when you water try to water at least six inches deep (water penetration) and do so 2-4 feet in diameter of the plant. We currently have two irrigation systems on two fruit tree projects in the county. They are being water significantly different because all of the environmental factors.
