Locating Moisture Probes
Irrigation scheduling is critical to ensuring crop performance is not constrained by too little or too much water, both of which can have negative effects on final yield. Correct timing and duration of irrigation improves the overall efficiency of the crop and contributes significantly to it’s productivity and profitability.
PCT’s solutions ensure the probe is located in the majority soil type so the majority of the crop will receive optimum watering. Similarly the probe should not be located in areas that higher or lower than the plane of best fit, i.e. not in areas where water will pool or shed quicker than the majority of the field.
