The presence of water and wetted parameter in the root zone is vital for plants and has major impact on crop growth (Raoof and Pilpayeh, 2013).
(2012) compared single emitter wetted patterns with multi emitters and it was noticed that wetted depth was significantly greater in multi emitters than single emitter.
Field test for the wetted pattern, of digging a pit under an emitter is considered the most reliable method of emitter discharge and spacing (Keller and Bliesner, 1990; Battam et al., 2003), however, field tests are costly, time consuming, and difficult to implement under certain field conditions and are rarely conducted.
This model is giving the wetted parameters under single emitter discharge.
