Flood irrigation in Mesa
Last year I moved to a house with flood irrigation. The property is burmed deeply and can hold water up to 12 inches deep. I planted several citrus last year but they struggled with leaf drop and general lack of growth. There is heavy, clay soil. I'm concerned because the water stands on the surface for a couple of days and I may be drowning the trees (grass loves it though). My question...how long should I let the water stand?
