Along with the wind related damage, this unseasonably warm dry September will lead to above average irrigation need continuing. As you see from the graph below, our typical irrigation need steadily declines from early August through about October 1st. However, every year is different. As you can see from the chart below also, last year we stopped irrigating in early September as the rain started early, but in 2012 we irrigated into October Due to unseasonably warm dry early fall. Who knows what this year will bring but so far it looks more like 2012 with a long fall irrigation season.
