any time or field. A farmer can create an irrigation program in monthly basis at the
beginning of season or any time he/she wants to and get a very simple advice per

The Daily water calculation using real meteorological data can be used for fields that
are close to weather stations. Every day the app calculates the amount of water
needed for a field. After a daily based calculation, the app gives a simple advice to
farmer about the water needs of each particular field. The advices are categorized in
three categories: no watering need (green advice), watering with xx amount of water
needed (yellow advice) and watering with xx amount of water is necessary (red
alarm). When a red alarm occurs, the app sends e-mail and sms to farmer informing
him/her that the plants are in danger and watering must be done immediately.
