The Leading Cellular
Ag System To Conserve
Water & Increase Yields
EarthScout® Cellular Soil Moisture Sensors and Weather Stations are an affordable, easy-to-use, smart farming and irrigation technology that installs in your field in minutes. The Cellular Soil Moisture Sensors send real-time field data to the EarthScout® Irrigation app on your phone and laptop. The Irrigation app shows you the Field Capacity (FC), Maximum Allowable Depletion (MAD), and how many inches of water to add using simple charts and graphs, so you can dial in the precise water and nutrients needed for healthy growth. Reference the Irrigation app chart each day to irrigate up to the Field Capacity and dry down to the Maximum Allowable Depletion. Using this simple approach, most growers see 25 – 50% savings on irrigation costs in the first year. Also available is our popular WeatherScout 1 Cellular Weather Station which monitors 11 hyper local weather variables including precipitation, wind speed, wind direction, air temperature, and humidity – and sends the data real time to the EarthScout app. To learn more, schedule a call, or contact us today at 1-877-443-7632.
Custom Configure EarthScout® For Your Specific Needs.
EarthScout® was designed to be easily adaptable for any indoor or outdoor crop, soil, or growing condition. EarthScout L3 (shown) has 3 plug and play sensor ports so you can easily add environmental and soil moisture sensors, as needed. EarthScout L3 Plus has five different sensor ports for above and below ground monitoring.
Our TDR Soil Moisture Sensors (shown) are research-grade and considered to be the most accurate sensors on the market, and require no calibration. When installed in the root zone they measure soil moisture, soil temperature, and soil EC at various depths, and send the soil data back to the EarthScout Irrigation app in real time. Use two TDR Soil Moisture Sensors for monitoring soil data at two soil depths.
Above ground sensors are also available for monitoring air temperature, humidity, and solar radiation. All EarthScout devices are portable and can easily be moved from zone to zone as needed.
How It Works
EarthScout® was born as a result of meeting with hundreds of growers like you who were seeking an affordable IOT smart agriculture solution to help them conserve water, reduce irrigation costs, and simplify their irrigation management efforts. Our easy-to-install cellular soil moisture sensors and weather stations capture multiple data points in your soil and growing environment – giving you real time field information across zones. Field data is instantly communicated using cellular technology to your phone and laptop, and visually displayed in our easy to use EarthScout Irrigation app, helping you Grow Smarter™.
Bert Bouwman and his son Berend grow a dozen different crops, including sweet corn, watermelon, cantaloupe, pumpkins, cucumbers and strawberries, and sell them through local produce stands and major supermarkets in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota.
They purchased one EarthScout to help them save money on their pivot and drip irrigation, and in the first year they saved 50% on their irrigation costs. The next season they purchased three more EarthScouts to use in their greenhouse, watermelon, and strawberry field. In addition to realizing savings on irrigation, Bert is using EarthScout in his deficit irrigation to dial in his drip irrigation system for growing the sweetest, juiciest watermelons and strawberries.

“EarthScout helped us reduce our irrigation costs from $75 per acre down to $50, which saves us about $3,000 for every 120 acre field.”
