You don’t need a crystal ball to predict the 7-day water outlook for your crops…you need FieldNET with WaterTrend℠.

“FieldNET with WaterTrend is a powerful new feature that unlocks customized crop water usage insights for all of our FieldNET™ customers - giving them the information they need to make more effective and efficient irrigation decisions,” said Michelle Marcuzzo, software product manager at Lindsay. “It’s now available globally to subscribers for FieldNET-equipped center pivots - with no additional subscription or equipment needed.”

Using FieldNET with WaterTrend, growers can see trends in how their crops will use water during the upcoming week, giving them the ability to make better, data-driven decisions on when and how much to irrigate. Another added benefit of the new feature is the ability for growers to view field-specific weather data, including the current field conditions plus hourly and daily forecasts.

Not available through any other remote monitor and control platform, FieldNET with WaterTrend:

  • Provides a 7-day water outlook based on field-specific forecasted rainfall amounts, crop growth stage and crop water usage information
  • Shows trends of water refill or depletion in soil profile
  • Enables effective and efficient irrigation planning
  • Is accessible via the FieldNET app - no additional subscription or equipment is needed for FieldNET-equipped center pivots

Marcuzzo added that, at any time, growers can take their irrigation management to the next level and upgrade to full FieldNET Advisor™. The first-of-its-kind irrigation scheduling tool delivers daily, automated irrigation recommendations - with the ability to account for multiple crop types and planting dates, incorporate satellite imagery, further customize the irrigation parameters and receive continuously updated variable-rate irrigation (VRI) prescriptions.

“From monitor-only options to complete monitoring, analysis and control, FieldNET offers solutions to meet every grower’s needs,” she said. “FieldNET with WaterTrend furthers our commitment to creating a more sustainable future by equipping growers with data and insights to run their irrigation system with the precision needed to sustain their operations for generations to come.”
