What is the irrigation scheduling broadacre solution?
This unit is for farmers growing all broadacre crop from cotton and corn to canola, barley and wheat. The broadacre solution is suitable for irrigation types from overhead to flood. With this unit you will save time while optimizing water usage and maximizing yield with accurate data making accurate decisions possible for everyone.
What does this unit consist of?
The Schedule-it Broadacre Solution consists of a 60cm soil moisture probe with 6 depth sensors, a canopy sensor, a telemetry/connectivity unit and a rain bucket. It also includes the software and dashboard where all the data is processed and displayed alongside our unique irrigation scheduling service.
How does the Broadacre Solution help you?
Our broadacre unit will make irrigating on any farm a simple accurate decision saving you time. It’s as simple as that. Our team comes out to your farm, installs and sets you up and within 2 to 3 weeks your system is calibrated and you will receive your realtime 7 day irrigation recommendation forecast in mm directly to your phone or PC.
We take all that incoming data and process it into an easy, simple to use forecast in mm to your phone. One look and you know what to set the irrigator on and move to the next job. Then, when you have settled down after a busy day and have time to scroll through some data or at the end of the season would like to view a report on the season’s irrigation, it is available on your phone on PC.
What can I view on the Dashboard?
Our easy to use dashboard has all the info and background data you need including the 7 day irrigation recommendation, real time weather forecast, rainfall, growing degrees days, soil moisture and temperature at various depths, spray conditions and much more. It will all be there when you have time to look at it today or at the end of the season.
We aim to put everyone on the same page.
Can my agronomist access this data?
All our data is available on our dashboard. We work hand in hand with agronomists and with permission from the farmer, agronomists are given full access to the data including irrigation forecasts, rainfall, weather or humidity alerts, season reports and much more. We welcome input from all decision makers and want our system to make everyone’s life simpler, easier with accurate information and optimised water usage.
