ALL FARMERS UNDERSTAND THIS:

A CROP WILL NOT GROW WITHOUT WATER OR SOIL MOISTURE. THE KEY, HOWEVER, IT’S DETERMINING WHEN THE PLANT NEEDS WATER. TOO MUCH WATER CAN BE MORE DETRIMENTAL THAN TOO LITTLE. HOW TO DEFINE THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF WATER FOR THE SOIL?

THE ANSWER TO THE DILEMMA IS THE iMETOS® SYSTEM.

iMETOS® System comes with a wide range of first-class soil moisture sensors that can be inserted in various soil depths. The sensors will supply the grower with daily water consumption of the crop within the different soil layers as well as with the ET (Evapotranspiration) data. This data through our cloud software solution (FieldClimate) is then used to determine the optimum time for irrigation. Our DSS for irrigation will help prevent both damage due to drought stress and excessive watering.

 

Within FieldClimate you are able to set and adjust a number of IRRIGATION MANAGEMENT SETTINGS:

  • Calculation of an average root zone soil moisture graph defined by the user (the upper full amount known as full point or field capacity and the lower amount or refill point).
  • Various sensor layers can be displayed in graphs in a number of formats, including standard, stacked or average.
  • Full and refill point budget lines are color-coded so users can clearly see the range of soil moisture for optimal management – red (deficit), green (comfort zone) and blue (excessive soil moisture).

Other parameters and tools for a comprehensive UNDERSTANDING OF WATER AND SOIL MOISTURE MANAGEMENT:

  • Weather measurements and forecast, such as precipitation amounts and timing.
  • Vapor pressure deficit.
  • Growing degree days (phenological stages).
  • Current and forecasted evapotranspiration ET0.

 

PESSL INSTRUMENTS IRRIGATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS CAN BE USED IN ALL IRRIGATED CROPS. 30 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE HAVE SHOWN THAT GROWERS CAN CUT DOWN ON UP TO 50 % OF IRRIGATION RUNNING TIME AND SAVE ENERGY, WATER, SERVICE COSTS, FERTILIZER AND HAVE HIGHER YIELDS WITH LESS INPUT.

 

The crop shown in the graph is initially subject to two irrigation interventions on a daily basis. Thanks to probe monitoring of volumetric water content, it was observed that an acceptable soil moisture level for the crop could be maintained even with only one irrigation intake per day.

Result: Immediate 50 % water saving.
