Reduce Water & Inputs with EarthScout®

Many growers with pivot or drip irrigation over apply water and nutrients as a precaution. With EarthScout Wireless Soil Moisture Meters, most growers see a 30-60% savings in water and inputs in the first season of use – saving thousands of dollars in water, electricity and fuel! The EarthScout® Wireless Soil Moisture Meter is an affordable, easy-to-use, smart farming and smart irrigation technology that installs in the field in minutes. The above and below ground air and soil moisture meters and sensors send real-time field data to the EarthScout® app on your smart phone – so you can dial in the precise water and nutrients for healthy crops – just above the wilting point. Plus, the additional EarthScout sensors enable you to:

Case Study

Dan owns an apple orchard in Southern Minnesota where he is growing twenty different varieties of apples on 24 acres. His 12,000 trees include well-known varieties like Honeycrisp and McIntosh, plus other varieties suited for northern climates like Pazzaz, Riverbelt, Cortland and Zestar.

“When I heard I could calculate Growing Degree Days in my own orchard’s micro-climate, I knew it could help me better predict emerging disease and pest threats, and that’s really exciting,” said Dan.

“We usually average $75 per acre for corn irrigation. EarthScout helped us reduce our irrigation costs to $50 per acre, which saves us about $3,000 for every 120 acre field!”
