Monitor your field moisture levels

You may need to increase your irrigation frequency or application rate. I am thinking of several of the blueberry fields that I have visited in the last several days, but this information applies to anything else you are trying to grow. Our daytime temperatures are rising as we head into summer, couple this with the lack of significant rainfall that we have received lately, means that soil moisture levels are decreasing unless irrigation amounts are increased.

I know everyone is busy with harvest and other chores, but take a few minutes a check to make sure your irrigated crops are still receiving adequate moisture every week.
