SCADAfarm Soil Moisture
SCADAfarm’s soil moisture products allow you to continually monitor two key variables for plant growth: soil water and soil temperature.
They are valuable tools in today’s farming environment.
• Avoid over-watering
• Optimise plant growth
• Show environmental responsibility
• Help make important irrigation management decisions
Having accurate soil moisture and temperature data at your fingertips can help you optimise your irrigation plan, save water and find the right balance to maximise crop growth and quality.
Our robust Aquaflex sensors, EnviroPro probes and associated Point Green loggers will transmit accurate data on a daily basis to our secure SCADAfarm servers in the cloud. You can then access that information whenever you need directly on your PC, tablet or smartphone.
Aquaflex sensors are buried horizontally in the soil and are an ideal way to measure the average moisture content beneath permanent crops.
Our EnviroPro soil probe is installed vertically and has sensors located every 10cm to measure moisture at different depths. Both 40cm and 80cm probes are available (four or eight sensors) and are suitable for permanent and seasonal crops. They can be removed before harvest and re-used the following year. Monitoring your soil moisture at varying depths can help determine your drainage profile and pinpoint areas where leaching might occur.
Our experienced Field Team will install the sensor of your choice in a suitable location on your property where it will best meet your needs.
This integrated solution works alongside SCADAfarm’s suite of products to produce a comprehensive picture of what’s happening on your farm or orchard so you can make the right irrigation decisions.
