Weather Stations

Key Points:

  1. Evapotranspiration (ET) data helps determine a crop�s water needs
  2. The ET is the water used by plants plus that evaporated from the
    soil over a day and is determined by local weather conditions.

  3. You can receive local ET data by SMS
    to help you irrigate more efficiently

  4. Allowance must be made for factors including:
    • soil type
    • irrigation system
    • critical crop growth stage
    • leaching of accumulating soil salts
