“Better safe than sorry” isn’t always right.
Soil moisture and pasture growth go hand in hand. If you are in an area where water restrictions occur at some stage through the season it is tempting to keep “ahead” until then. But over-irrigation is wasted water – it causes leaching and reduces pasture growth. 1 2
To have confidence not to irrigate you need to know every day where your soil moisture is compared to the optimal zone for pasture growth - with Regen each irrigation block on your farm can be calculated separately.
Combined with the weather forecast, Regen can help you optimise the value of your irrigation.
You’ll receive daily recommendations both on when to irrigate and how much, to stay in the optimal zone - on your phone or computer.
