We are excited to introduce to you our new FieldStat Water Stress Forecasts! The forecasts are a great leap forward in irrigation management technology for two reasons. First, the FieldStat Water Stress Forecasts provide you and our other growers with the ability to see the number of days until you need to irrigate and the influence of future irrigation applications on the water stress of the plants. This ability to see into the future is a first in the 10,000 year history of agriculture. Second, FieldStat Water Stress Forecasts are the foundation for advancing towards the future of precision agriculture. Today, we are a significant step closer to connecting the dots between each irrigation decision and the final crop yield and quality...

The beginning of a new season is a time of great promise. It is the promise that we will replicate the successes (and avoid the mistakes!) of past seasons. Concerned with producing the perfect canopy size to meet their production goals this year, growers compare this year’s conditions to past experience to inform spring irrigation decisions. With the new improvements to Tule’s canopy monitoring tool...

Even with the recent rainfall, you may need to irrigate in order to hit your target canopy size and achieve your desired yield. With low rainfall in regions such as Lodi, the Central Coast and the San Joaquin Valley, some sites have little water stored in the soil profile and could use early irrigations to meet their production goals for this season. Here’s a look at the early season irrigation needs by region...

Recommendation table

We are excited to release our newest feature -- the Tule Irrigation Recommendation! Every irrigation manager must answer two questions: 1) What is the water status of my field? and, 2) What do I do about it? Tule's remote water stress monitoring (the Plant Response Index, or PRI) and the Tule Target PRI help you answer the first question. The Tule Irrigation Recommendation helps you answer the second question. It provides you with an irrigation amount to achieve the Tule Target PRI...
