What is precision?
Efficiency is what you get out, for what you put in.
Efficiency = output / input
Water stored in root zone / water delivered to the field
Evaporation from vegetation
Evaporation from soil surface
Approximately 90% application efficiency
A high efficient irrigation system will help increase the precision of
the application of water and nutrients to the plant.
The use of an irrigation system to apply the necessary application of nutrients or chemicals to the crop.
Need to know and understand the equipment.
The use of fertigation or chemigation with site-specific technology.
