Case Study #3

Sprinkler Irrigation — Lettuce

Advantages:
  • Stabilization of beds
  • No collapsing on bed margins
Via sprinkler irrigation, SoilSentry™ was applied to a lettuce field to improve bed stabilization and prevent collapsing and separation along the seed line. The soil was a light sandy mix, which makes it difficult to maintain bed integrity. When the furrows collapse, separation occurs along the seed or transplant line exposing roots. If not corrected, this can eventually lead to an uneven stand, non-uniformity of the produce, as well as loss of yield. In the end, SoilSentry worked to minimize collapsing problems and stabilize the beds.
