How Many Cellular Soil Moisture Sensors Does A Grower Need?
We recommend you start with one EarthScout L3 Plus and use it to determine your Field Capacity (FC). Then use the EarthScout Irrigation App to gradually reduce your irrigation to safe levels just above the Maximum Allowable Depletion (MAD), which is typically 1/2 of your Field Capacity (FC). Our team of agronomists are available weekdays to help you calculate your Field Capacity, Maximum Allowable Depletion; and dial in your irrigation.
Later on, get a second EarthScout and place one in your best performing field, and the other in your poorest performing field. Use the data from your best field as a guide to adjust water and nutrients in the other field until both grow well.
