Calculation tool for the Soilmod v1.0
Because even now at last a few more maps are published with the SoilMod, I thought to myself, as I even had some problems, lets make a tool from which one can see what to do and when. And above all, what advantage it will cause. Based on the Readme for SoilMod and the tutorial by Geneborg is now that emerged from here.
What can this table do?
Actually, the whole thing is pretty self-explanatory.
After checking the values of a field ingame, you insert those in the table. Added to this are informations of the weather, the type of fruit, etc. When specifying the rainy days is to be noted, should it rain, the value for each hour that it rains, will increase the moisture by one stage. Ingame will only appear if it rains at all. How often and how long so is not yet clear at this time. So it is mainly the moisture that should be observed. (Tip: If there is too much moisture, you can, for example, replace the planned fertilizing with liquid fertilizer through the use of dry fertilizer.)
The middle part of the table is devoted to calculation of fertilizer application, etc. Here you can specify what and whether how many ever applied. Here will lead, as so often, many paths to success. So you can for example, decide before sowing a green manure, liquid manure, manure and compost manure, or let the chemicals do their job.
In each section can be seen, what it benefits. Thus, it is easier to reach the goal of the ideal values on the date of harvest.
These are then (the better the greener) also shown at the bottom of the table. Also the expected yield is displayed. Thus a certain cost-benefit factor can be seen even before sowing.
The negative influences by weeds are not included in this table. Because weed is not uniform and will not occur everywhere in the same way, so therefore only sporadically affects the values determined in the field, no value can be determined in advance for this. It will only issue a recommendation in section herbicide. It shows how much is needed to be largely protected from weeds. However, this is done as a function of the entries made in the beginning.
I hope this table is for one or two of use.
PS: More ideas and suggestions for improvement are welcome.
