Advanced Irrigation Scheduling
Advanced irrigation scheduling is a method of analyzing real-time field data to optimize irrigation application decisions.
optimize irrigation decisions
Irrigation scheduling helps determine when to irrigate and how much water to apply. Soil moisture sensors provide a gauge of current field conditions to determine if there is adequate moisture for the crop, if the soil is drying, or if the soil is very dry.
Advanced irrigation scheduling can optimize plant growth, crop yield, crop quality, nutrient management, root zone health, and irrigation decisions.
