Irrigation scheduling tool launched

UK-based Crop4Sight has released a new potato irrigation scheduling tool. 

The new irrigation schedule tool uses a potato specific water balance model. Using tailored soil type, variety information and farm irrigation capabilities, it creates schedules for the week ahead, whether the user wants to irrigate for scab control, yield or set their own soil moisture deficit (SMD).

Hourly meteorological data for including  evapotranspiration (ET), windspeed, relative humidity and rainfall are automatically pulled in for each crop.
