Description

Monitor VWC in fields

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.
