14% Yield Increase, 68% Water Use Reduction

Trial: Grapefruit (Irrigation, California USA) 
Fifty trees were chosen to test how the grower’s existing practices compared to CropX irrigation advice. The aim was to increase yield and save water. Control trees were irrigated using a sprinkler system with Hunter irrigation controllers; a separate, automated irrigation system was installed for trees irrigated using the CropX irrigation advice. Results: CropX irrigated trees experienced a 14% yield increase while using 68% water savings.
