Achieving Basket Weight Uniformity with OASIS

March 13, 2018

Five hundred two-petunia baskets were planted and placed on the ground. They were then watered multiple times using a traveling water boom. Several days later these baskets were moved from the ground and placed on a new OASIS line. The OASIS line was then run for one pass using OASIS precision watering. This pass is referred to as ‘PASS ONE’ in the following documentation.

Immediately after the ‘PASS ONE’ was completed, a second pass was run using OASIS weighing to show the effectiveness of the OASIS precision watering. This pass is referred to as ‘PASS TWO’ in the following documentation.

The following are screen captures of the standard OASIS screens that were automatically generated during these two passes. (The red text box and red arrow were later placed on the charting screens to add description.)
