We don’t recommend a distribution based on hectares. We recommend one Arable Mark per: Management Zone: This could be based on field, ranch, or irrigation scheme. Choose a resolution of distribution that can help you make decisions and act accordingly. Crop or Varietal Type: The Arable Mark measures canopy growth, health, stress, and more. These measurements will vary between crop type or varietal. While you could be growing apples and oranges in the same microclimate, they behave differently to the same environment, and that will show up in our plant-based measurements. Choose a location that is representative of conditions or not! Representative of crop conditions More or less vigorous Where frost occurs Where disease outbreaks first occur Calculator: Number of microclimates x # of crops/varieties (eg.6 x 2 = 12 Arable Marks) or number of management zones.
<li>If the Mark 2 can perch above the canopy, it can measure the vegetation below it.</li>
