Starting at the beginning, and looking at a zone before any modification, for the soil moisture ‘checkbook,’ I see:
Forecasted (i.e. today)
Prev Moisture Bal=0
Irrig (+) = 0
Precip (+) =0
Crop Evap = 0.30 in.
Current Moisture Bal = 0
If the general consensus is manual waterings count against the checkbook, then why isn’t checkbook being decremented when there’s no manual watering happening.
I would think that for today, the day that I installed the Iro, crop evap did indeed occur (it’s well over 100 degrees F here in Dallas BTW, at the moment). Thus, why doesn’t Current Moisture Bal = -0.30 at the moment?
