Real-time data anywhere
Receive real-time alerts of critical conditions and a detailed view of crop monitoring data, all on a single, customizable dashboard.
Confirm conditions before spraying
Avoid wasted pesticide applications and determine the risk of disease or pest emergence by confirming wind, temperature, and humidity conditions.
Plan irrigation based on crop needs
Use soil moisture, evapotranspiration, and rain data to irrigate only when needed and determine water retention and moisture patterns.
Improve crop planning
View microclimate monitoring data to determine optimal crop locations, and plan for more accurate harvest dates.
Monitor water level in wells and tanks
Easily track and record water flow remotely in irrigation channels and streams to assess irrigation and runoff.
Reduce costs
Monitor critical conditions so you can prioritize when and where to deploy workers, use equipment, and irrigate.
Protect your crops against climate impacts
Protect plants from frost and excess heat with real-time alerts that allow rapid decision-making to prevent crop loss.
