There are four reasons for mapping the field
1) It helps you the grower understand the variability in your fieldת especially regarding water holding capacity.
2) It allows Cropx to best decide where to place sensor stations.
3) Our understanding of the soil water holding capacity, where the probe is located, helps the Cropx software to more accurately calibrate the capacitance based probes used in the Cropx system.
4) Field mapping allows Cropx to produce an irrigation prescription that can be used to manually manage your pivot or if you select Cropx-Pro, have our software manage your variable irrigation system.
