SWAN Systems is now able to provide growers with local weather forecasts and data-based insights that enables accurate rate irrigation and nutrient application decisions.
Taken together, this service information enables resources to be used to their full potential while also offering reduction in costs through water savings, and overall better yields. And as current growers relay it will certainly make watering decisions easier.
Managing, interpreting, and deriving insight from myriad forms of farm data have become essential competencies for irrigators in recent years, with quite the feat to determine the correct answers. With cumulative experience amounting to decades, the team at SWAN Systems now has a strong pedigree in this space.
Weatherwise Watering is essentially a new service developed by SWAN Systems.
It takes vast volumes of forecast data produced by the Bureau of Meteorology and delivers 7-day forecasts for any location (within 3 km) in the country.
It’s designed and made for farming businesses that have difficulty getting an accurate weather forecast, usually as they are in a micro-climate or are located some distance from the town where the local forecast is based.
The forecast is updated daily and includes evapotranspiration and rainfall – two essential indicators for irrigation decisions. It is truly an irrigator’s forecast.
Subscription to Weatherwise Watering forecasts is free at https://weatherwise.swansystems.com.au. It’s designed by farmers for farmers.
For irrigators, the forecasts feed into SWAN Systems’ irrigation decision support software. This is a web-hosted, integrated water and nutrients management solution for irrigators https://www.swansystems.com.au/
The system starts with water-use and nutrient budgets. It’s important to have a budget as a starting point. But budgets are based on average years – we all know that each year is different and you have to adapt on the fly.
SWAN collects and analyses daily weather, flow meter, soil moisture and satellite data. It uses knowledge of soil type, crop characteristics, and your irrigation system to provide schedules based on the current status and the immediate forecast.
SWAN makes it easy to move to a precise irrigation scheduling to really drive farm productivity and returns. And you always know how usage is tracking against budget.
SWAN is used across Australia and New Zealand on over 5,000 hectares of irrigated crops including, wine grapes, citrus, table grapes, pastures and almonds.
