We've just launched a major update to our Pivot app, designed to take irrigation optimization to the next level. Here are some of the new features and updates:
The Plant Dynamic Refill Line
Days to refill prediction
Six depths readings from our new soil moisture probe (NRCS compliant)
Plant Dynamic Refill Line and days to refill prediction - integrating data from the plant and the soil to give growers a first of its kind real-time picture of what their plants need. Unlike most soil moisture solutions that have a predetermined refill line, our patented algorithm re-calibrates the refill line daily according to the plant's water-demand ("plant-status"), obtained from our stem-sensors.
For example, if the plants are telling us that they have enough water to withstand soil moisture depletion while staying stress-free and happy, the refill line will adjust downward accordingly, giving you more days until you need to fill the soil to avoid stress. We also use a machine learning algorithm to predict the soil moisture depletion rate to tell you how many days you have until the moisture level drops below the refill line, so you can plan accordingly.
Phytech's advisor - A clear, bottom-line recommendation that takes into account soil, plant and weather data to help you quickly understand what needs to be done.
The water balance area - easily view past irrigation performance alongside what you should expect in the next 7 days. The blue color represents the delivered quantity, and the black-line represents Phytech’s irrigation recommendation.
Six depths readings - Thanks to our new soil moisture probe we are now presenting readings from six depths, allowing a better understanding of what needs to be done
