How to Irrigate using Sap Flow Sensors.
Register now for the webinar:
- When: Friday, 18th June, 8am EST
- Description: Sap flow sensors are ideal for irrigation because they are the only sensor that can measure when, and how much, to irrigate. In this webinar, Dr Michael Forster from Implexx Sense, explains how sap flow sensors can measure how much water your crop's are using. Sap flow sensors and irrigation scheduling, or timing, is also explained in this webinar.
How to Interpret Sap Flow for Irrigation Management
Sap flow sensors are an increasingly popular tool for irrigation management. However, understanding and interpreting data from sap flow sensors is not always easy. Sap flow sensors are critical for irrigation managers because they are the only sensor that provides data on crop water use, irrigation scheduling, water stress, and more. Interpreting sap flow data is a critical skill for anyone involved in irrigation management.
Dr. Michael Forster has spent over 12 years delving into all aspects of sap flow data. In this 30-minute webinar, Dr Forster will discuss:
- How sap flow is related to crop water use
- Combining sap flow sensors with soil moisture and weather information
- The interplay of sap flow and evapotranspiration
- How sap flow can determine how much water your crop requires
- Irrigation scheduling and when to water based on sap flow sensors
- Regulated deficit irrigation and holding back on the water
