Reduce Risk and Maximize Yields with Irrigation Scheduling

Posted by irrigation.education Community on Oct 30, 2018 12:59:37 PM

For generations, conscientious farmers have been practicing the manual method of soil moisture monitoring based on how the soil "feels". If it feels too dry, irrigate; if it feels too wet, wait a couple days. This classic method can be effective with proper training and experience; however, it's very cumbersome and time-consuming.

With new advances in technology, farmers no longer need to guess when and how much to water, nor visit the field to find out. Valley® Irrigation has an irrigation scheduling and soil-moisture monitoring tool called Valley SchedulingTM that reduces guesswork and provides easy-to-understand irrigation recommendations based on field-proven science.
