New UF/IFAS Apps Save Resources

Irrigation_system_-Perrot-_in_actionWith help from several departments in UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, UF has released a series of “smart irrigation apps” to help manage urban and agricultural irrigation.

The apps are designed to help commercial farmers and small-time gardeners calculate their plant’s precise water demand to save money and water resources.

There are currently apps available for citrus, strawberries, cotton, avocado, vegetables and urban lawn. Check them out here: http://smartirrigationapps.org/
