1.3 Entering plots
In the upper left menu, you can access the Draw Fields section (Figure 4) which allows you to draw your own cultivated plots. Browsing the map you can find the location of your plots. With the Draw button you can draw a new plot by following the visible boundaries on the map (also helping with the boundaries of the land particles). Next, you'll fill in the form shown in Figure 5 and 6, with information about the plot: you will need information about the culture and handling of the plot. It is recommended that you give each plot (polygon) designed to facilitate subsequent recognition.

2 Irrisat: all data for irrigation with one click
The home screen provides the current evapotraspiration map of business plots. The color scale ranges from yellow (low evapotraspiration – bare soil) to deep blue (high evapotraspiration – lush vegetation). To get the information, simply click inside one of the plots and navigate the information that appears in the tabs below the map. The system processes the information in each required plot.

3.1 Fields Tab
The Fields tab displays a list of plots with minimal information such as name, area, culture; the purpose of this tab is to be able to select plots directly from the list, using, if necessary, sort orders (descending or ascetic sorting) and/or filters; This feature is very useful especially when accessing from mobile devices or when there are many plots.
Figure 8 – Fields Tab
The Activities tab shows all the information about the selected plot (plot name, crop, type of irrigation, sowing date, presumed date of harvest, etc.) and in it can be recorded the activities carried out on the such as the irrigation dates made and the watering volumes supplied

3.4 Weather Tab
In the Irrigation Tab are reported the time charts related to the temperature (minimum, maximum and daily average) and daily rain (including forecast days) and their cumulative values on the period; Using the dates in the tool bar above the charts, you can change the reference period, obtaining an immediate update of the graphs and cumulative values.
