Simple definition: How much irrigation water to apply to which field and how often.
Eliminate the guesswork from irrigation with Schedule-it’s smart irrigation scheduling service. Conserve water, save time, and reduce costs with real-time data and expert support.
The Schedule-it Irrigation Scheduling Service is maintained by an expert technical team using a cloud-based platform that provides irrigation scheduling recommendations. Using data from multiple sources, including soil moisture probes, rain gauges, and VPD/canopy sensors, to generate a seven-day forecasted irrigation recommendation in mm (spray or flood) or hours (drip and micro systems), we also take into account factors such as crop water usage, crop phenological models, weather forecast data, and irrigation system parameters to provide accurate and relevant information.
The platform is available on both mobile and desktop devices, and is supported by specialists in the various fields of agricultural science, IT, and hardware technologies. By using the Schedule-it Irrigation Scheduling Service, farmers can save time and money while increasing yield and profits by maximizing available water supply, saving water and electricity usage, and maintaining healthy soil and plant environments.
How irrigation scheduling works:
- Field data collection – Our trained technicians install a variety of in-field IoT sensors.
- Data processing – Real-time information from IoT sensors is uploaded to the cloud and combined with weather data and plant phenology. Our expert irrigation specialists then process this information.
- Information presentation – Our service displays a 7-day irrigation scheduling forecast in millimeters or hours to your Phone or PC.
- Time and money savings – Our service saves farmers time, water, and money, allowing them to focus on other important tasks.
