Growers and consultants often ask us, “How did you determine the Wet, OK, & Dry zones on the soil moisture chart?” & “How do I know when to irrigate?” With the growing season gearing up, we thought it would be a great time to dive into that topic!
Trying to stay on top of changing weather conditions can be an overwhelming task; one miscalculation could lead to damaging a crop or decreasing a yield. Thankfully, various solutions are available to help growers avoid these pitfalls. On-farm weather stations help growers everywhere to get real-time weather information at their fingertips!
We are proud to announce three important upgrades to our sensor stations & base stations in 2019.

This time of year, growers often ask, “When should I stop irrigating?” It is an important question because terminating irrigation too early could lead to lower crop yields, while over-irrigating is a waste of water and money.
So how should you determine when it is time to stop irrigating? Keep reading to find out!
We might take it for granted, but honey bee pollination is essential to produce many fruits, vegetables, and nuts we love and enjoy everyday. Unfortunately, we're currently faced with an alarming supply and demand challenge. In the U.S., we're growing more crops that require pollination. At the same time, the honey bee population continues to decline, forcing farmers to turn to alternative methods to pollinate their crops.

The USDA’s National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) has various programs available to help landowners and growers manage and improve natural resources on their land or farm. Check out our blog post to find out how much you can receive from the government for implementing conservation practices!
In our last post, we discussed the influence of soil infiltration rate, application rate, and water holding capacity on soil moisture content. In this week’s post, we delve into how water distributes itself throughout the soil, discuss the factors that affect soil infiltration rate, and outline significant benefits to improving your infiltration rate.
After heavy irrigation or precipitation, farmers immediately check their Trellis Dashboard expecting a huge spike in soil moisture content, but sometimes receive only a moderate response. In these scenarios, farmers often contact us because they are worried about the accuracy of their soil moisture sensors. This post, written to quell these worries, explains why soil infiltration and application rates are critically important and how they impact your soil moisture content.
Precision agriculture is undoubtedly on the rise. Emerging technology like Trellis’ wireless soil moisture sensor system is simplifying farm management and helping farmers #GrowMoreUseLess. To read more about precision agriculture, check out the articles linked in this post!
Growers and consultants often ask us, “How did you determine the ‘Wet,’ ‘OK,’ and ‘Dry’ zones on the soil moisture chart?” and “How do I know when to irrigate?” With the growing season gearing up, we thought it would be a great time to dive into that topic.
