IRIS’ continuous monitoring helps you visualize and manage when to irrigate. With IRIS you can see rooting depth and keep track of soil water levels to provide objective criteria for irrigation decisions. That means growers can make informed decisions to help ensure irrigation is applied at the right time, at the right rate and down to the right levels. Below you can see IRIS features and benefits:
Irrigation plays a critical role in the life of plants. They need adequate water to develop a strong root system. Irrigation is about proper timing and maintaining the available water at the appropriate amounts, keeping the water in the root zone. When soil water drops below proper levels, crop stress develops that leads to loss of both crop yield and quality. Over irrigation contributes to erosion, loss of nutrients and increase input costs.
