    Soil %

    Hi Michael,
    I noticed that although it was very hot last week, it even got up to 90F on Monday, the application showed the soil to be 99%, is this normal or something wrong with my forecast site?

    Thanks,
    Aldo

    Something that some have observed is a setup of Zone factors to be whole numbers rather than fractional one. For example 75 rather than 0.75. This will make moisture loss rates very low. You daily ET shows that you should have a reduction in soil moisture so it looks as if that part of the calculation is working fine.

    If you do have it set at 75 or 100 then I would like to know if this was intentional or if it happened automatically?

      Hi Michael,
      Please see picture, it shows 75, should it actually by 0.75? I did not change this value as I can remember.

      Thanks,
      Aldo

            In Pete's case he will experience moisture loss rates about 25% higher than a typical lawn crop. If this value has historically worked well then no reason to change it. If the moisture trigger threshold was reduced by 25% and the crop factor increased to 1.0 then the same approximage scheduling should occur.
