The Irrigation Management App has been further expanded. The most recent expansion concerns the addition of weather data. Based on accurate weather forecasts, it is possible to manage even better and to deploy resources such as water and fertilizers even more efficiently and effectively.
The Irrigation Management App is a great tool for optimizing cultivation in terms of irrigation and fertigation. Sensors measure the relative amount of moisture in the soil available for your crop (VWC). You can customize the app for any crop on any surface. By setting thresholds, you determine the bandwidth of the amount of soil moisture within which you want to operate.
Extensions of the Irrigation Management App
The app was recently expanded with the EC (Electric Conductivity). This makes it possible to use valuable fertilizers efficiently so that they benefit the crop and do not disappear into the soil through leaching.
The app has now been further expanded with the reliable weather data from Meteomatics. This extension gives you insight into three crucial values: temperature, relative humidity, and radiation (Photosynthetically Active Radiation, PAR). With the latest addition, as a grower, you have a dashboard with numerous options to control and optimize your cultivation.
Adding the weather data makes it possible to anticipate the conditions to come. This makes it easy to optimize the right conditions for the crop. The advantages are that you can grow more planned and consistently and that you can make optimal use of sunlight and heat so that you can use precious energy, water, and fertilizers as efficiently as possible.
