Nervous to get started with soil moisture sensors?
Don’t worry, our Wireless Sensor Stations are easy-to-use, easy to install, & maintenance free.
Our Sensor Stations record data every 2 hours & send it to a Cellular Base Station, which automatically uploads it to the cloud.
Soil Moisture Sensors
We offer three types of soil moisture sensors:
Watermark Sensors: These sensors measure soil moisture tension (how hard the plant has to work to extract water from the soil).
Sentek Drill & Drop Sensors: These are volumetric sensors that directly measure the amount of water in the soil. They also measure soil temperature.
Sentek Drill & Drop Triscan Sensors: In addition to soil moisture & soil temperature, these sensors also measure electroconductivity.
Select an antenna height that is tall enough to reach above the crop canopy throughout the entire growing season.
Our growers’ favorite feature: you can drive over the unit in the field! No need to move it during the season.
We have 4’, 8’, & 12’ antennas available.
communication & Power
Just 2 to 4 lithium AA batteries power our Sensor Stations & should last up to 2 years.
Sensor Stations send data collected via radio (“walkie-talkie style”) to a Cellular Base Station, which automatically uploads the measurements to the cloud.
Include a Davis Rain Collector as an add-on to your Sensor Station & view realtime precipitation alongside your soil moisture data.
