Does the institution use weather data or weather sensors to automatically adjust irrigation practices?:
A brief description of how weather data or sensors are used:
Our soccer field has an irrigation system with a ground moisture sensor that triggers the need to irrigate. Our other athletic fields are irrigated with pulse water cannons from 6am until noon to minimize evaporation if we get a reading on our hand held soil moisture meter that indicates a need to irrigate. We begin to meter the moisture content once we see the turf going into stress by either having a purple haze, or we notice the turf above drainage lines going into dormancy.
