when2water™ is an integral part of an irrigation system for agricultural and landscaping applications. The system provides a scalable solution for users to manage valuable water resources.
Agriculture is a major user of ground and surface water in the United States, accounting for approximately 80 percent of the Nation's consumptive water use and over 90 percent in many Western States.
As California imposes Executive Order to reduce water consumption, and the long extended droughts of the American Midwest and significant reduction in crop yield, the need for a change about how watering decision are made is here. when2water provides valuable data to make informed decisions. The customer using the when2water product will have important temporal data as well as the context of regional and local precipitation patterns. The integrated stream of data is collected near-real time to provide alerts of large precipitation events at the field scale, so scheduling can me updated if fields become too wet for heavy equipment or other planned activities.
when2water can be used with:
- Any scale of operation. Pots to plots to spreads.
- Any type of irrigation system.
- Till or no-till
- Any crop type or climate region
