Precision in Practice: Taking variable rate irrigation to the next level
Kylen Hunt of CropMetrics discusses how variable rate irrigation takes variable rate fertilizer to the next level at the 2014 National Farm Machinery Show.It did take variable rate fertilizer to the next level using PRI's. What we do with the variable rate irrigation is identified difference will textures in the field and those different soil textures obviously are holding different quantities of water. And those different quantities of water oftentimes. We will end up over water in certain areas of the field using flat rate irrigation so a lot of times are heavier spoils just get -- saturated. And too much water will hinder it up -- good nutrients and that claims. Might be enabled Iran variable rate irrigation where we can back off the water and some of those heavy soils and look very precisely. Then what that allows us loyal to do is reduce its moisture contents . Two more optimize level and optimize low profile and allow for optimize nutrient uptake. -- got -- plan and that's really what
