Benefits of monitoring soil moisture
Soil water plays a critical role in the life of plants. They need adequate water to develop a strong root system and to cool themselves. Irrigation has to be applied at the right time and you have to keep the water available in appropriate amounts. When soil water falls below adequate levels, stress the crop develops and leads to loss of both quality and crop yield. Watering more than adequate contributes to erosion, loss of nutrients and increased input costs.
Continuous monitoring can make a difference. FieldNET tracks water levels of local soil and climatic conditions to provide objective criteria for irrigation decisions. This means that producers can make informed decisions to help ensure that irrigation is applied at the right time decisions. Benefits include;
Minimizing water stress of plants
Maximize the performance potential
Reduce operating costs
