Qanat Role in Irrigation
After the construction of the pomegranate garden, irrigation is the most important factor in the quality and quantity performance of pomegranate gardens. Note that pomegranate gardens are generally found in warm and dry climates. The annual evaporation level in Iran is about 2500 mm, and in warm and dry climates, trees lose a lot of transpiration, and the abundance of water evaporates in the soil is lost. Along with this, the pomegranate is a fruit that needs a long period of growth, and it adds to the sensitivity of irrigation to this tree. So, using Qanat water helps to design a sustainable water system in a timely and optimal way to water the tree properly.
At the end of the growth period, with the cooling of the air, the color of the fruits is reddish, and the amount of juice is also increased. The continuation of managed irrigation will result in full fruit growth and weight gain. When the irrigation is abundant, it causes the pomegranate peel to be cracked. During this period, put enough water to the tree in order to avoid increasing the number of the damaged fruits.
The pomegranate is the tree that grows its main growth in hot seasons. Water is the key to the cultivation of the pomegranate. Consider the tree in terms of quantity and quality of water. Pomegranate gardens need proper irrigation management to produce a qualitative and abundant product. If you are not successful in this, then the product will be limited by the quality. Water is a precious commodity that, if properly managed, will make you proud.
