UF/IFAS irrigation apps for urban turfgrass, strawberry, citrus
The app covers users in Florida and Georgia and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices. It is available to download in the App Store and Google Play Store. The apps’ names in the stores are Smartirrigation Citrus, Smartirrigation Strawberry, and Smartirrigation Turf.
The apps are part of an overall suite of apps being developed, Migliaccio said.
UF/IFAS and UGA are also working with other researchers in the Southeast through the Southeast Climate Consortium based at UF, to create irrigation apps for avocado, cabbage, cotton, peanut, and tomato growers.
Migliaccio has published a step-by-step information guide about the urban turfgrass app, which can be viewed or downloaded from the UF/IFAS Electronic Data Information Source, or EDIS, here: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ae499.
The three apps are currently free, and will remain so as long as the weather and forecasting data are free and grants are available to support app maintenance, she said.
The other researchers involved in this app release include UF/IFAS’ Clyde Fraisse, an associate professor in agricultural and biological engineering and Kelly Morgan, an associate professor in soil and water science, and George Vellidis, a professor who specializes in precision agriculture and water management at the University of Georgia’s Tifton campus.
