Precision Ag can effectively manage your irrigation needs. We can provide you with information regarding the timing of irrigations and give you let you know precisely the amount of water you need to apply using soil and plant-based methods, soil moisture monitoring equipment, weather information and plant-based measurements such as the pressure bomb or leaf porometer.
We use the latest environmental monitoring equipment such as weather stations, soil moisture probes and plant-based measurements of water status to help you effectively manage your crops and conserve water.
The use of weather information is important to aid in irrigation management, disease and insect control, and predict and document weather occurrences such as frost and heat injuries. The documentation of weather events are important for crop insurance claims. Precision Ag can help you purchase weather stations and show you how to use the information to manage your crops. We also use it in the consulting services we provide.
