Which inputs do I need to create an irrigation schedule?
The setup process can be done in just a few steps. All you need to do is select the location of your field, which crop you grow there and which irrigation system you have. Farm Water Advisor does the rest by instantly calculating the water needs of your crop for the following seven days. You can now get field-specific irrigation schedules delivered straight to your phone, every day.
Why are these maps outdated?
The high-resolution maps that you use to locate your field may be several years old, as images with such a high resolution are only taken once every few years. The maps serve as an orientation point as you find your field. The irrigation schedule you will see later is based on current data.
Can I update the irrigation type and output after field creation?
You can change the irrigation type at any time should you wish to update the discharge rate later in the season. Select your field from the field list and click on the “edit” button in the bottom menu. Here you can change the irrigation system data.
Can I update the crop type after field creation?
If you want to change the crop type later in the season you can do it anytime. Select the field from the field list and click on the "edit" button in the bottom menu. Here you can change the crop type.
Where do the weather data come from?
All weather data, including reference evapotranspiration, are delivered by The Weather Company, an IBM business. The enhanced current conditions and forecast data from IBM provides high-resolution weather data down to a 500-square meter resolution. The forecasts are based on The Weather Company's proprietary modelling capabilities and their network of observations, radar and satellite assimilation, combined with quality assurance from meteorologists and related scientists.
