Extreme weather urges growers to lessen crop yield uncertainty
March 3, 2022
To help growers achieve more efficient irrigation and water management, KISTERS has launched FieldRay, a new end-to-end, sensor-to-software solutions for smart agriculture.
Our environmental monitoring experts have designed a irrigation monitoring network consisting of precision weather sensors and soil moisture sensors, data loggers to affordably automate data transfer, and the cloud software datasphere for viewing and analyzing data anytime on smartphones, tablets or PCs.
The digital transformation of agriculture or digital ag enables farmers to remotely monitor water resources in real time and respond accordingly. The combined use of observed data such as soil moisture or water loss due to evapotranspiration and weather forecasts enables growers to less uncertainty.
Automated monitoring of crop inputsletgrowers reallocate their focus to more urgent tasks,unlessalerts raise awareness to undesirable conditions and emerging problems.
Seasoned farmers have intuition that isn’t readily translated to artificial intelligence. Nonetheless, data from their smart irrigation network can confirm those insights. Data can also reveal previously unseen trends or new developments.
Ultimately, climate-smart agriculture promotes water efficiency as water supplies decline.
For more than 60 years, the KISTERS group has been engineering precision measuring instruments and data loggers as well as developing software and IT solutions for the sustainable management of water, energy and natural resources. Its advanced and robust software portfolio streamlines all aspects of the information value-chain from data import and integration to analytics to decision-support.
