Golf course management is more than meets the eye. Before every swing of the golf club happens, a long line of carefully planned steps must be carried out. A proper golf course management and proper turf grass can make a difference in golfer’s play – from lowering the golf scores to reducing handicaps.
When placing IoT devices in the field, we always keep in mind the holistic or nested approach to monitoring. It means we try to connect many different types of equipment and solutions which are strategically placed in the field. Multiple data points give us the chance for monitoring meteorological events with higher precision and higher precision means better understanding of the current and future status of the crop.
Having a precise and reliable measuring equipment is essential, but in the end, what it comes down to on a daily basis, is the interaction with data, software (apps) and solutions.
Nested or holistic approach connects all the pieces, either equipment or solutions, and joins them into one single farm management system. This way, you don’t have to worry about one aspect being overlooked. You avoid unnecessary trips to the field, you know exactly what are the conditions at any given time, and when is the right time for irrigation, fertilizing, pesticide application, harvesting, and more.
