Agricultural research is an important driver within the agricultural industry, providing data and intelligence that helps advance agricultural knowledge, leading to better practices, improved crop quality, and greater productivity. Through research applications, the industry has made significant strides in addressing many of today’s agricultural challenges, including developing more sustainably-focused techniques and efficient growing methods.
With the aid of agricultural research, ag professionals can help reduce irrigation costs, improve yields, make better use of acreages, and optimize pest control.
Onset monitoring tools and sensors offer access to a range of soil and environmental data, providing agricultural operations with accurate and reliable information for making smarter crop-management decisions.
The HOBO RX3000 is Onset’s next-generation remote data logging station that provides instant access to site-specific environmental data anywhere, anytime via the internet. The new station combines the flexibility and sensor quality of more expensive systems, an onboard LCD display, and the convenience of plug-and-play operation. The RX3000 has three configurable systems, that can be configured below, that consist of the following part numbers: RX3001-00-01, RX3002-00-01, and RX3003-00-01.
Measure soil moisture over a large volume of soil with the affordably-priced 10HS Soil Moisture Smart Sensor. This sensor integrates the field-proven 10HS Sensor and a 12-bit A/D, providing ±3% accuracy in most soils conditions, and ±2% accuracy with soil-specific calibration. The 10cm probes measure soil moisture over a larger volume of soil which helps to average out any soil variability. Readings are provided directly in volumetric water content. This sensor's high frequency design gives it a low sensitivity to salinity and textural effects and a wide measurement range.$139
