Soil moisture monitoring is the simplest and most effective way to determine the best time to irrigate crop or pasture. Being able to monitor the daily change in soil moisture reserves provides the grower with an accurate method for scheduling the next irrigation.
With water trading between $200 – $300 per ML for most of last season, it makes a lot of “cents” to get the most out of every drop. (Pun intended)
Irrigating too early or too late by just 1 day has the potential to cost your business through lost production and wasted water. Irrigators already using soil moisture probes in their system often comment that it has enabled them to stretch out their interval without compromising production. With water valued at $200/ML, decreasing the number of irrigations per season by just one would lead to a cost saving of approximately $100/ha.
