To manage your water balance:
Click on Go to irrigation on your Solarcrop card.

Add an irrigation
You can declare in the application that you have or will be irrigating. This will help you monitor your crop's Readily Usable Reserve (RUR) and avoid unwanted hydric stress.
To do so:
Click on Add an irrigation
Enter the date of your irrigation (in the past, present or future)
Enter the amount of water added during your irrigation
Your water balance will be updated immediately.
💡 Easily or hardly usable reserve?
The green zone 🟢 is the reserve that can be easily used by your crop, which means that it can extract water from the soil without reducing its transpiration activity.
The orange zone 🟠 corresponds to the reserve that is difficult to use by your crop and can lead to hydric stress.
💧 Using a drip system
If you are using a drip system to irrigate, you can add it by selecting clicking on Drip at the top of your screen.
