Soil Moisture Monitoring
As temperatures rise, trees require greater amounts of water to thrive. Growers have various options to maintain optimal soil moisture levels and protect their crops. These include drip irrigation, mulching to lock in moisture, employing weather sensors to better predict irrigation needs, and careful monitoring of watering schedules to ensure the plants receive adequate hydration. Through these practices, growers can keep their trees healthy and maximize their harvest yields even in warmer weather conditions.
