What happens if I don’t follow my recommendation one day?
The Regen recommendation is a management tool to ensure you have sound, consistent information to support your daily decision making about when to irrigate and how much. Following the Regen recommendation ensures you are operating at GMP which is a key goal for the WIL scheme. A key goal for the WIL scheme is to ensure all water irrigation is justified by plant requirements, and to potentially minimise any over irrigation which is wasting water and also leads to higher nitrogen losses.
However, if your reports show that there is continuous irrigation when the app is showing that the soil water balance is sitting at or above field capacity it is likely that the WIL Environmental Manager will have a chat to discuss what is happening on your farm.
