Monitor your soil moisture in real-time, accurately, from your phone or a computer using a wireless soil moisture sensor system made for agriculture.
Using soil moisture sensors to fine-tune irrigation scheduling
Using real-time volumetric water content measurements will show you when and how much water to apply. You'll see when your plants may start to experience stress and when you're using too much water.
From the volumetric water content measurements, you'll see when the soil moisture drops dangerously low and thus you'll be able to prevent lower yield due to inaccurate irrgation.
Some farms in drier regions waste up to twice the amount of water that's actually required by the soil and plants. From the soil moisture data you can easily see when moisture exceeds the soil's holding capacity and you can adjust your irrigation accordingly.
The volumetric water content chart often shows the water intake as the plant withdraws moisture from the soil. Therefore soil moisture data can help you understand at what depths your plants have the most roots and where they are the most active.
Wireless and smart
Forget kilometers of cables and cumbersome data analysis. Choose a wireless soil moisture sensor with smart capabilities that can tell you in real-time when and how much to irrigate without any effort on your side.
When choosing a soil moisture sensor system make sure you go for a wireless option and ask about the system's ability to successfully send data from your farm.
Some questions to ask: - Will the data appear in my computer without me having to interact with the devices? - Can the system communicate through trees in an orchard? - Can it reach the GSM network in a remote location?
Some soil moisture sensors will only provide you with raw measurements that then require years of experience to extract useful information from. When choosing a system to help guide your irrigation, always go for a smart one that uses automatic data analysis and machine learning behind the scenes so that you can focus on what's really important: saving time, saving water, and increasing yield.
Some questions to ask: - Is it obvious from the charts if my field is to wet or too dry? - How are the sensors calibrated? - Are the sensors known to produce accurate readings?
Soil Mositure Sensor for Agriculture
Most systems are not good enough to be used at your farm
When choosing a soil moisture sensor system you need to make sure that it's made for an agricultural environment.
Your farm deserves a system that doesn't break and doesn't need maintanance no matter the environment.
Your crops deserve sensors that are proven and validated to provide accurate measurements for many years.
You deserve a digital assistant that will save you time and stress by providing you with simple, actionable insights all year long.
