How It Works

We identify field variability.

Soil type, texture, topography, slope, yield and the grower’s own knowledge are a few of the important aspects affecting variability we analyze when beginning the program.

Access Your Data Anytime

Powered by the Virtual Optimizer Pro precision irrigation cloud portal, soil moisture data is delivered wirelessly to an easy to use website or mobile app with optional text and email alerts.

2) Science

The revolutionary Virtual Predictor technology allows growers working with a CropMetrics Partner to create a custom irrigation plan that looks several days ahead into the future, predicting exactly how much irrigation will be needed, and where the water needs to go. The technology uses data science to complement and extend the use of in-field sensors. We accurately identify what is happening now with sensors in the field, and better understand what is coming next with advanced forecasting science. Virtual Predictor gives a clear forecast of future irrigation events and can do so either with or without the use of soil moisture probes. The advanced forecasting is powered by hyperlocal custom field modeling that utilizes state of the art weather and crop data science.

The new release of the CropMetrics mobile app, VO Grow is a full refresh of the experience, providing a grower with an intuitive and rapid view of what matters for irrigation– now and in the future– for all of their fields in one easy-to-read interface.

3) Support

Precision agricultural management is a systems approach and CropMetrics believes that one of the most integral pieces to the overall solution is local agronomy support. Every field is field specific, and to determine the most optimal solutions and strategy for each field requires local agronomic expertise. CropMetrics is dedicated to establishing a trusted network of certified Partners in localized areas to support our precision solutions. Only when you combine the advanced tools and solutions from CropMetrics with our Certified Partners the maximum benefit can be delivered. As a grower, you can be assured that your investment in this technology will be supported by an advisor who understands your individual needs and the agronomic practices in your area.
