Irrigation Management

Implement the best soil-moisture irrigation strategy for your fields.

Insert Aquacheck or Sentek probes into the soil to measure soil temperature and -moisture at different depths, as well as evapotranspiration (ET) data. FieldClimate presents this data in the form of graphs and can analyse this data to determine the optimum time for irrigation.

Weather stations suitable for irrigation management:

µMETOS

compatible with Pessl, Aquacheck and Sentek soil probes. Plug & play, no additional interfaces needed.

iMETOS 3.3

compatible with Pessl, Aquacheck and Sentek soil probes. These stations need an additional SDI interface to connect with Aquacheck and Sentek probes. Contact us for a quote.

nMETOS 180

compatible with Pessl probes only.

Aquacheck probes

iMETOS_AC

Aquacheck probes can measure:

  • Volumetric Water Content
  • Soil temperature

Aquacheck probes have sensors for every 10cm depth:

  • 6 (60cm probe)
  • 9 (90cm probe)
  • 12 (120cm probe)

These Aquacheck probes are plugged into a datalogger or your existing weather station. The data captured by the sensor is sent automatically to the FieldClimate platform. No need to walk to each probe to extract the data!

For more information and prices, please contact us.

Sentek probes

Sentek probes can measure:

  • Volumetric Water Content
  • Soil temperature
  • Salinity (selected probes only)

Sentek probes have sensors for every 10cm depth:

  • 1 (10cm probe)
  • 3 (30cm probe)
  • 6 (60cm probe)
  • 9 (90cm probe)
  • 12 (120cm probe)

Soil Management on FieldClimate

Set budget lines (refill point and full point) based on your soil type.

Prevent excess and insufficient irrigation by making sure the volumetric water content stays in the “healthy (green) range”.

Smart Irrigation

With the additional activation of FarmView, the Irrimet system can estimate the crop coefficient and rootzone depth for different stages of the cultivation period.

Saturation

All pores are full of water. Soil is overwatered and water is not absorbed by the plant anymore.

The water available for the plant to absorb through its roots will determine the crop’s health and directly influence yield potential.

If soil moisture is kept within the “healthy range” between field capacity (also referred to as ‘full point’) and wilting/refill point, there will be enough available water for the crop to develop.

Each soil type has a value for saturation, field capacity and wilting point and can be used as guidelines for irrigation management on Irrimet.
