We are beginning to irrigate a few fields that missed recent rains. As seen in Table 1 in the PDF below, planting dates, heat units, and crop stage along with a few notes about field activities are listed for each location. The Irrigation Sensor number is current sum of the four soil moisture sensors (6”,12”,18”, and 30”). Refill Number is where we look to begin irrigation based on soil type, presence of hard pan, and other factors.
