Calculate. Communicate. Validate.
Tucor’s Total Cycle Management solution uses weather stations in combination with soil-moisture sensors to provide the most accurate data about your site’s irrigation needs. Accurate data means precise irrigation, so you use only the water you need, conserving water and promoting plant health.
Prior to the development of the Total Cycle Management Solution, irrigation systems provided water demand estimates via soil moisture or weather data – not both. Each of these estimation methods has drawbacks when used alone. For example, soil moisture sensors may not be practical for projects with inconsistent soil types.
Weather stations, on the other hand, do not measure or take into account the soil’s current water content. Scheduling irrigation based on climate conditions alone with no feedback loop to cross-check the current soil moisture conditions leaves out a vital part of the equation.
By combining these two monitoring technologies – along with the Tucor smart controllers – Total-Cycle Management provides you with the most water use efficient irrigation scheduling available today.
