The management of irrigation aims to maintain the crop in its water comfort zone throughout its cycle. That is to say by avoiding stress from lack of water but also stress from excess
In practice, irrigation management consists of starting the irrigation at the right time at the start of the season, resuming it with the right time after rains, and ending it when there is nothing left to gain. And throughout the season, manage the right frequency-dose pair to cover just the crop’s needs.
Too low moisture prevents the crop from hydrating normally, limits the assimilation of mineral elements and its sap flow, and has a great impact on its metabolism and therefore its productivity
Excess moisture can also penalize the crop as the roots perform poorly in these anaerobic (airless) conditions. It promotes pathogenic risks for the roots and more generally on the plant, affecting its entire metabolism. The excess water percolates to unexploited depths by the roots, so it is pure loss of water with a risk of leaching of mineral elements.
“Irrigating without a decision making tool to pilot, is like driving a machine without knowing the capacity of its tank neither its consumption… and above all without any gauge!”
