Precision Agronomy Solutions is based out of Wood River Nebraska. We have 4 employees that work to provide irrigation services and recommendations on over 500 fields and 150 growers in central and western Nebraska. All of our employees are certified annually in their expertise as it relates to the agronomics of efficient water management.
We provide growers with irrigation advice by installing multi sensor capacitance probes in the fields that will need irrigation scheduling. The probe is normally installed about 2 leaf on corn and once stand has been established on soybeans. After the probe is installed the data is delivered to a server that is accessible with and app or on via the web. Data includes hourly readings from every sensor. The data set, which available to every grower, includes, moisture readings in inches and VWC%, EC readings, and soil temperature from each sensor on the probe. In addition, the app has weather data and forecasts along with crop growth information. Our team uses all that data to post a weekly irrigation recommendation for every field. Along with that we provide our local phone numbers so growers can call us at anytime for an update on any field. If/when the probe goes offline in season, our team will be dispatched and will have it repaired and back to sending data in 48 hours. The grower does not have to worry about maintaining the system. Once irrigation season has ended, we remove the sensor and produce a season report for every field. This report includes, rainfall, recommendations, graphs of all the data collected, and irrigation water applied. This report can then be delivered to the NRCS offices.
