How can sensors help you make more money!?

Here at Trellis, we understand growers use many different methods to manage their irrigation.  While some methods have been used and trusted for generations, newer methods, often involving the use of technology, are proving to be more effective. Understandably, many farmers question if new technology is really going to help them in the long run.  Thankfully for us, the University of Georgia’s (UGA’s) Precision Agriculture Team did the dirty work for us.

Trellis Partners with UGA for Water Conservation Project

Together with the UGA Extension Office, the metro Atlanta-based AgTech company Trellis completed a 2017 water conservation project with local cotton growers from eleven counties across southwest and southeast Georgia. Trellis supplied and installed three wireless soil moisture stations (66 total) and a cellular base on each of the selected farms (22 total) to help growers make better irrigation decisions during the growing season.
