What is CropManage?
CropManage is a free online decision support tool for irrigation and nutrient management in a variety of crops. Designed by the University of California (UC), this tool helps growers, irrigators and ranch managers make confident production decisions based on research and real-time data.
CropManage can be configured to work with many different data sources, such as the UC Davis Soil Web tool, in-field soil moisture sensors and weather stations, and irrigation flowmeters. The online tool can also be utilized for recordkeeping due to its ability to track fertilizer and water applications on a field-by-field basis.
CropManage can be used for a large variety of Central Coast crops, including strawberries, raspberries, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, celery, spinach, bell peppers, cilantro, mizuna, and head, romaine, leaf and baby lettuce.
Why should you attend the workshop?
This workshop offers hands-on training, so that you can learn, step-by-step, how to navigate and use CropManage to assist with fertilizer and water management decisions and record keeping.
