Crop water use sensors: helping farmers optimize yield and quality
Tule has created a new sensor that is installed in the middle of an agriculture field to measure the total amount of water that evaporates from a 10 acre area. With this information, we provide optimal irrigation recommendations for farmers.
The primary benefits to the farmer are:
- Improving yield and quality through optimal irrigation recommendations
- Labor cost savings by replacing field visits with 24/7 remote monitoring of plant stress
- Alerts when plant stress exceeds targets
- Comparison of water use to other growers in region (wisdom of the crowd)
