Citrus needs high yields to ensure positive results at the end of the season. Accurate irrigation management throughout the whole season guarantees reaching the harvest with the fruit of optimum condition with no physiological disorders and the plot with its potential yield. In lemons for example, due to their double or even triple flowering periods, water restrictions are used as a replacement of hormonal treatment for narrow flowering cycles into one main period during the season. To implement such treatments, accurate information about the plant’s condition and stress level must be available.
SupPlant’s citrus growers have been able to optimize their production systems by having accurate information allowing them to:
- Manage precise irrigation management, avoiding and enhancing stress precisely when and at the level that the crop needs it. This capability ensures potential yields and optimum sugar/acid relationship.
- Precisely monitor air temperatures and receiving timely alerts for activating freeze control methods.
