Water For Generations Projects
2014 NEWBA Advanced Real Time Data Project
Building off last year’s data, improvements in real time measures included: Uniform probe calibration using the soil texture triangle, expanded use of on-farm weather stations, addition of pressure guages, improvement in customized dashboards, comparing flow meter readings to power company hours of operation.
2013 NEWBA Real Time Data Project
Cooperating growers tested new technologies to maximize water use with telemetry that provides real time information on the amount of water a crop is using, irrigation water applied and water available in the soil profile.
Nitrogen movement in the soil was also tracked.
