How does the Nitrogen model track soil moisture?
- Farm and Fields created.
- Crop assigned to a field.
- Yield goal set.
- Indicate the field's tiled status.
- Nitrogen plan template created and applied to a field.
The model provides the percent soil moisture of each layer on a daily basis. The top layer typically has the most variability because of evaporation and infiltration. With rainfall, water moves to the next-lower layer as the layer above exceeds field capacity for that layer. The algorithms are from established public research on soil water movement.
