The solution process
Radio Frequency equipment
Wise Sol is the most spread-out version due to its scalability and the possibility to include a large number of measurement stations in the field, communicating by radio frequency to a Gate Way.
It has been designed for any type of crop, can include more than 60 stations per Gateway sending data to this one which sends the data to the cloud, cableless and no need of internet connection in the field.
WIKIT- Autonomous equipment
Wikit is the auto installable version of Wise, it registers the sensors measurements and send them directly to the cloud.
Wikit uses a battery powered by a solar panel, and specially adapted for farms that need a reduced number of stations.
Wikit is a portable device easily moved to different locations.
Available with 4G/3G/2G, Narrow Band (LTE) and SigFox offering the best coverage.
Our high precision electronic tensiometers measure the water tension in different soil depth.
The tension interval boundaries are determined by a soil analysis in our laboratory from which we obtain the real water retention curve enabling the user to perform a precise irrigation from day one.
This analysis helps the user understand how his soil works.
In that way, comparing the actual water tension in soil with the recommended tension, the user can make his adequate decisions.
Air temperature and humidity Graphic with Vapor Deficit Pressure calculation (VPD)
From the VDP values the user obtains information about the level of the plant transpiration and when a stomatal closure occurs, in which case he can avoid unnecessary fertirrigation.
The user is notified to his smartphone extreme values
It also calculate the accumulation of heat units/minute.
Water based on sensor measurements
FERTIRRIGATION CONTROL IN SOILESS CROPS
We measure three variables in real time:
We continuously measure three variables:
- The water tension in the substrate.
- The electrical conductivity (EC) and the pH of drainage.
- The volume of each irrigation, of it’s Drainage and the subsequent drainage Percentage.
Maintaining the tension within the recommended limits, as by its retention curve analysis and fixing the drainage % to obtain A stable EC, we can determine the “Comfort Zone” and the action items when we leave it.
The process commences with the water retention capacity of the substrate to avoid root asphyxia or lack of water.
Following, we fix the drainage level to maintain a stable EC within the pre-established boundaries. By measurement of the tension, the EC and the drainage, we obtain full control of the soilless crops.
