What are the three types of weather data used in the Nitrogen model?
- 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 three types of weather data used in the the Nitrogen model are the current crop year's actual measurements*, the 8-day forecast, and historical data.
Consider the following example: The date is 3/1/18. The following weather is used when a nitrogen recommendation and simulation are run:
- Current crop year’s actuals: 10/1/17 - 2/28/18. Represented on the Season Chart before today's date line representing the estimated current soil nitrogen levels.
- The 8-day forecast: 3/1/18 - 3/8/18.
- Historical data: 3/9 - 9/30. Represented on the Season Chart as the blue cone shading to show the estimated, simulated, available nitrogen based on decision zone information and local historic weather patterns.
*Snow is measured in liquid equivalents. Data from the TWC grid for current growing season readings is updated nightly.
How does the Nitrogen model track soil moisture?
What is the estimated runoff from rainfall events?
How does irrigation affect the Nitrogen model?
