Crops are irrigated from a water source such as a well, canal, or river. The salinity and nitrogen content of the water can affect crop growth. The nitrogen in irrigation water can often supply a portion of the N requirements. CropManage can help you determine the nitrogen contribution from the irrigation water. At this time, CropManage does not estimate salt loading from irrigation water, but this feature will be added in the future. You can add each water source that you use for irrigating your crops to your ranch

In ranch settings select the “+” green icon to add a new water source. A dialog box will open. Add the name of the water source, nitrate concentration in units of ppm of nitrate-N, and the electrical conductivity of the water in units of decisiemens per meter (dS/m)

Now you are ready for the next step: adding commodities to your ranch
