Balance Your Irrigation with a New App from University of Missouri
Crop irrigation can be a tricky balancing game – water too much and you might see a loss of nutrients. Water too little and a dry field reduces crop yield.
University of Missouri Extension takes the guessing out of irrigation with their new app, Crop Water Use. The app sets itself up with the farm’s soil information and location to input the correct rainfall information. Then, all farmers have to do is enter the irrigations they make for their personalized recommendations on when to irrigate next. The Extension encourages farmers to register now before spring to make your crop yield your best yet.
The app incorporates two different methods to calculate recommendations– one from the 1960s! Read about its development here.
