There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

Help with Avocado Cultivation please

Hello - Please kindly put this question into the forum thanks: 
Avocado watering needs ?
Hello all - I have a question regarding how much water is needed/best for growing avocados Here on the Andalusian Southcoast (Competa)
We have a small plot of land with about 100 mature trees and plenty of  agricultural water for them -  But am in doubt just HOW much water the trees need month by month during the year.
Right now each tree has 6 pieces of drip-jets each jet giving 4 Liter/Hourly.
Have been talking to an agrarian and he said (with our system) to water 3 hours every day in July/August - It translates then to 6 x 4 x 100 x 3 = 7200 liter each day which I find a bit excessive even for the 2 hottest month's ?

 (Sept/Oct he said - 2 hours every day )      
 I simply find it too much - But what do I know....?
I will be glad for any information regarding water-needs/quantities/month

Kind regards Erik - email:   edcprivat at gmail.com
