On-farm evapotranspiration calculation
Evapotranspiration is a measure of the water evaporated both through the air and through a plant’s leaves.
For a few months, we’ve been able to pull in evapotranspiration data from the Bureau of Meteorology. This data is useful, but the weather stations are usually located quite far away from our customers farms and so may not be very accurate.
This update adds support for calculating evapotranspiration from a weather station on the customer’s farm. The customer needs, solar radiation, wind speed, air temperature, relative humidity, pressure (optional, but improves accuracy).
The longer term vision is that people can conduct irrigation scheduling based on evapotranspiration in place of, or in addition to, soil moisture based irrigation.
