Your water balance will be updated immediately.

Using a drip system

If you are using a drip system to irrigate, you can add it by clicking on Add an irrigation and selecting Drip.

💡 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 yellow zone 🟨 corresponds to the reserve that is difficult to use by your crop and can lead to hydric stress.
