SWAT WATER is the newest development in leading-edge variable-rate technology. This new tool provides critical soil moisture variability information throughout the growing season for crop management decisions such as nitrogen top-dressing, fungicide applications, and variable-rate irrigation.

Precision Soil Moisture Management

Plant Available Water

Indicates the amount of water available to the crop at any specific time during the growing season. 

Surface Hydrology

Defines how water moves throughout the field and predicts the amount of rain that would cause the crop to flood in specific areas.

Days to Stress Point

Indicates how soon the crop is likely to stress due to a lack of moisture.

Informing In-Season Decision Making


Top-Dress Applications

Nitrogen topdress applications can be guided by how much available water is in the soil profile in each SWAT zone, to better match crop uptake requirements in real-time in season. This is the most precise way of minimizing over or under-application of nitrogen and can help manage risk in very wet or dry growing seasons.

Fungicide Applications

Fungicide decisions can be made easier by having the knowledge of soil moisture that drives canopy humidity levels, or days to stress point may suggest a fungicide is not worthwhile in parts of the field that are near wilting point.

Variable-Rate Irrigation

Irrigation scheduling decisions can be made with confidence, knowing that you can minimize stress of over-watering or under-watering in certain locations. With variable rate irrigation capability, SWAT WATER takes accuracy to another level being able to pinpoint proper amounts of water to specific locations in the field.
