Agriculture

Make production decisions based on actual on-farm weather. Protect yourselves from the risk of extreme events.

  • Make irrigation decisions based on rainfall, soil moisture and plant-water demand
  • Monitor soil temperature for optimum timing of seed sowing and fertiliser use
  • Monitor in-field evapotranspiration (ET) readings and use soil moisture probes to dramatically improve irrigation decision making
  • Observe wind conditions prior to spraying
  • Use Growing Degree Days to accurately forecast harvest dates
  • Prevent catastrophic frost damage
  • Track chilling requirements during crop dormancy


Product Overview:

 

Either the Vantage Pro2 or EnviroMonitor System are ideal for agricultural users, whether small or large.

Select the VantagePro2 if you require a simple installation with a single weather station relaying via wireless link back to your farm office. A basic system will measure air temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, barometric pressure, solar radiation and rain. It includes a display console where you can view data in real-time. Potential Evapotranspiration & Growing Degree Days are also calculated.

You can add the following options, either at the time of installation, or at a later date:

  • Solar radiation (and Potential Evapotranspiration)
  • UV (to calculate burning risk)
  • Mounting pole or tripod
  • Computer or Web interface
  • Additional remote wireless temperature & humidity stations
  • Soil moisture, soil temperature & leaf wetness station
  • Growing Degree Days calculator

 

Select the EnviroMonitor System if you require a remote connection via the 3G cell phone network, or if you want a wide network of sensors around your farm.

This system consists of a 3G Gateway connected to a GroWeather weather station measuring air temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, barometric pressure and rain. Data is uploaded via Spark's 3G network to the weatherlink.com web site where you can view the latest data or historic trends. Data can also be seen on a smartphone running the free Mobilize App for Android or Iphone.

You can add the following options, either at the time of installation, or at a later date:

  • UV (to calculate burning risk)
  • Mounting pole or tripod
  • Any number of additional remote wireless nodes that can measure soil moisture, soil temperature, flow meters, flow switches, water level, air temperature & humidity, or rain
