Gather Higher-Value Data.
Customized by Crop. Owned by You.

You can’t control the weather, but a powerful new tool gives you hands-on measurement of multi-factor growing conditions above and below the ground. Introducing EarthScout®, with precision growing environment sensor technology that delivers real-time weather and soil data directly to your phone – all season – measuring:

Soil Moisture
Oxygen Levels
Temperature
Solar Energy
Frost Risk
And More!

Access Field-by-Field or Zone-by-Zone Growing Conditions.

So easy to use! EarthScout can be set up almost anywhere in 5 minutes or less, and configured to any crop or growing environment to give you the data you need, when you need it. With EarthScout, you can even set alerts on your phone – reducing risk and supporting important decisions like:

Custom configure sensors by crops, soils, and conditions.

EarthScout was designed by growers to be easily adaptable for different crops, soils, and growing conditions. With up to five different sensor ports for above and below ground measurements, EarthScout lets you easily mix, match and add sensors as needed.

How It Works

EarthScout was born in grower roundtables as a practical and flexible solution to serve their needs today, while always evolving to better serve their needs in the future. The easy-to-install field sensors capture multiple data points – in the soil and within the local growing environment – giving you up-to-the minute field information between zones. Data is wirelessly communicated back to your smartphone through an intuitive interface.

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.
