Probe for Windows
The virtual test pit - an 'x-ray' of your soil
Make informed decisions based on the actual conditions in which your crops are growing. Calculate the amount of water the crop is using, and determine when irrigations are required. No more guess work and no need to rely on industry averages.
How does it work ?
Soil moisture is measured at different depths down the soil profile. Probe for Windows will then show:
Other soil and crop information can be incorporated, such as weather data and crop size. This data can be downloaded from other sources (or entered manually) and growth rates, total water use and irrigation efficiency can then be calculated.
Schedules are calculated using three different values of crop water use...
The date and the amount of water required over forthcoming weeks is calculated, ready for valve operators or automatic control systems.
The programme is available in English, Chinese, and Spanish, and can easily be translated into any other language
