The Indonesian agriculture sector is experiencing environmental degradation due to rapid urbanization, aggressive growth of population, and climate-change. Environmental degradation is one of the largest threats that will lead to an increase in the intensity and frequency of weather extremes. Excessive soil moisture resulting from extreme precipitation events during rainfall season can cause decreases in grain yields and escalate N loss. Based on research, each day of waterlogging resulted in an average corn grain yield loss of 0.42 and 0.72 Mg ha-1. Climatic conditions including rainfall and air temperature had a significant role in crop response to waterlogging and N fertilizer treatments.
Waterlogging Analysis gives the opportunity to quickly and accurately locate all potential and existing waterlogged areas in your field and reduce the negative effects of waterlogging, regardless of the field size and crop sort. You will find out how tolerant individual crops are to flooding conditions and be able to adequately adjust the irrigation system. Consequently, you will reduce the chances of the crops’ underperformance, keep the plants from wilting, avoid yield reduction, and prevent possible profit losses.
Waterlogging Analysis is essential if you want to know how a certain plant responds to rain or irrigation. It should be performed throughout the year, during the pre-planting, planting, and growing cycle.
