THE EXPERTS IN CROP WATER MANAGEMENT AND ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Modern irrigation techniques require precision data and expert decision support. Soil Moisture Sense provide a service to support you fully, ensuring accurate and reliable data is streamed live to you, enabling informed decisions to be made anywhere and at any time.
You can be confident that your crop management is backed by up-to-date data, industry-leading hardware, and professional analysis.
What happens below the surface of the soil is critical. Our soil moisture monitoring systems can provide a detailed view of water infiltration, crop use, drainage as well as track root development and soil temperatures. Utilising this data will allow you to optimise water application and manage nutrient in the soil or substrate better.
A full range of weather sensors are available to give a complete picture of what is happening both above and below the ground. This holistic approach to monitoring ensures you meet crop requirement and optimise production.
Precision data is only truly valuable when combined with local knowledge and first-hand experience. That’s why our team will always work with you, combining our expert analysis with your on-site understanding of the crop to provide the best possible support for your irrigation decisions.
This support ranges from regular notes on your data, phone or online meetings to in-field visits and end of season reviews.
Since 2018 we have been automating irrigation commercially utilising our tried and tested sensing and logging hardware.
Based on Sentek probe data and using M2M signals to trigger irrigation cycles, the system is simple to operate, reliable and robust. Irrigation set points can be set via our website and allow up to three separate irrigation points during a single day to meet the crops requirements. Wireless connection between field and irrigation controller make distances and obstacles no problem for establishing the connection.
The system can operate with different combinations of sensors which allows great flexibility in monitoring soil grown crop, different sized bags or pots for soft fruit.
Our clients have shown savings in management time, meeting crop water requirements better during times of changeable weather and often increasing quality/marketable yield.
We continue to develop the system, to add more online control and functionality.
