“When the health and quality of our product is at stake, it’s crucial that we have accurate data.”
Jan De Wit en Zonen
“The port wants to be faster, cleaner and leaner and sensors contribute to this goal. The sensor data gives us the information we need.”
Port of Amsterdam
"The more we measure, the more we know and the better we can arrange our greenhouses."
Custom alerts can provide insights on which crops are in need of irrigation, and which are in need of drainage.
This soil sensor determines volumetric water content (VWC) by measuring the dielectric constant of the medium using capacitance and frequency domain technology to provide accurate measurements of all soils and soilless medias with a wide range of salinities.
Using real-time data from soil sensors, farmers can adjust and tailor a granular approach to irrigation and nutrient delivery. Custom alerts can provide insights on which crops are in need of irrigation, and which are in need of drainage to prevent the damaging effects of overwatering including standing water compromising root development, overaccumulation of salts, root rot, fungus and mildew.
70 MHz frequency minimizes salinity and textural effects, making the sensor accurate in almost any soil or soilless medium.
