UGA EASY Pan Irrigation Scheduler: Pan Size Considerations (B 1201-1)
The University of Georgia EASY Pan (Evaporation-based Accumulator for Sprinkler-enhanced Yield) was introduced in 2001 as a simple, cost-effective alternative for scheduling irrigations on sprinkler irrigated row crops in humid regions. Several users have questioned the need for the larger sized tub or pan. This publication presents results of a test with two smaller pans. The potential to use a smaller unit would allow a single individual to easily set up and maintain the EASY Pan and, at the same time, reduce the overall cost of materials in the construction process. The hypothesis of this particular test was that the two smaller pans would respond in a similar manner to the larger pans under evaporation and excess rainfall conditions.
