Irrigation Management

Plantsystems irrigation and water management services have been developed to provide excellent crop performance together with full justification and economy of water use.

The environmental regulators in Britain have the duty to promote both the protection of the water environment and to encourage the efficient use of water resources. It is part of the application for abstraction authorisation to justify the amount and periods of use. In addition, farmers are required to report storage, use and discharge of water.

Utilising the Plantsystems management services, water use on crops can be planned, monitored and adjusted to take account of environmental factors. Scheduling takes into account local weather data, weather forecasts, soil moisture sensing equipment and crop canopy and root development to predict and justify water use.

  • Continuous soil moisture sensing
  • Continuous weather data monitoring
  • Water movement monitoring and leaching avoidance
  • Multiple depth moisture sensing
  • Flow metering and reservoir level sensing
  • Season irrigation review and report
