Netafim's New Mobile App Combines Field, Climate and Weather Data to Forecast the Watering Needs of Corn Crops

FRESNO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Netafim

USA, the leader in drip irrigation, announced today the release of a

powerful new mobile app that provides corn growers who use drip

irrigation with access to customized irrigation protocols and the

agronomic expertise needed to boost crop productivity and reduce overall

water use.

Free to download for iPhone

and Android

users, the NetMaize

app combines farmer inputs such as germination time, crop stage

information, soil type and field location, with climate and weather data

to develop a tailored drip irrigation protocol for corn growers using

drip irrigation. By streamlining the management of variables affecting

overall crop productivity, growers are able to better forecast the

irrigation needs of their corn crop and maintain precision control over

the root zone environment during the plant's critical growth stages.

In addition to Sprinkler System Installation Arlington real-time irrigation scheduling, NetMaize's one-touch

sharing function allows growers to instantly send current field data and

logs to a crop consultant or Netafim agronomist for review or use in a

more comprehensive agronomic plan.

"Simply put, nobody understands their field better than the farmer. By

combining grower knowledge with local weather data and more than five

decades of Netafim agronomic expertise, NetMaize gives corn farmers the

information they need to get the most out of their drip irrigation

system," said Lior Peleg, Head of Strategic Sprinkler System Installation Solutions at Netafim.

The NetMaize app enables growers to reap the benefits of drip

irrigation, maintaining optimal uniform soil moisture levels, root zone

aeration, improved plant health while maximizing water efficiency.

Developed by Netafim's team of agronomists and drawing on more than 50

years of experience in drip irrigation, NetMaize requires only a few

simple steps to get started. The app uses a clean, easy-to-read app

interface and communicates input instructions, information and

irrigation requirements in a clear and simple manner, allowing farmers

to make quicker and more informed decisions about the irrigation needs

of their crop.

"It is like having a drip irrigation expert in your pocket at all

times," added Peleg.

The NetMaize app is free to download and available through the Apple

iTunes Store for iPhone and the Google

Play Store for Android.
