Jan 26, 2022CropManage adds tree nut updates to app
During the last year, we have made a lot of progress in improving and expanding the capabilities of the CropManage Online Irrigation and Decision Support Tool. We added more commodities, created visualization tools, and streamlined the user interface so that CropManage is more intuitive and responsive. Some new features worth checking out are:
- Calendars for viewing and creating events.
- Charts comparing applied and recommended water and fertilizer.
- Graphical display of soil water status and crop evapotranspiration.
- Ability to view and edit daily rainfall and evapotranspiration data.
- Expanded help documentation.
- Feedback link to report problems or give suggestions.
In addition to these features, we have improved many of the algorithms that drive CropManage, and added new commodities including tree crops (almond, pistachio, and walnut), alfalfa, and more vegetables (artichoke, carrot, Brussels sprout, pepper, and tomato).
CropManage remains a free online tool that is based on research conducted by Farm Advisors, Specialists, and Professors at the University of California. We continue conducting field trials to test and improve the decision support algorithms that drive CropManage.
Our collaborative approach is catching on. In recent years we are working closely with researchers and scientists at NASA, University of Arizona, University of Hawaii, and Oregon State University, as well as private companies such as GeoVisual Analytics to bring more capabilities, and more commodities to our decision support platform.
