Interception efficiency (%)
Interception efficiencies are directly related to how
efficiently you are irrigating. As your interception efficiency decreases more water is falling between your
containers leading to wasted water, increased runoff, and increased sediment movement from higher volumes of
water leaving your irrigation pads. It is recommended that interception efficiencies below 60% be changed
through decreasing your spacing, moving to drip irrigation or consider spray stakes (for container sizes
larger than 5 gallon).
