Suite of new on-screen features introduced for easier crop management.
GROWERS using Agrovista’s weather station services can now access a suite of new and updated on-screen features to help optimise crop management, following an extensive overhaul of the company’s data platform.
The weather stations measure a range of parameters including rainfall, air temperature, soil temperature, soil moisture, relative humidity, leaf wetness, solar radiation and wind speed, depending on which option growers choose.
A new dashboard design presents a wide range of data in a cleaner, more accessible format via an app that works across different devices.
Potato growers will also find weather and disease forecasting, as well as a forecast for spraying conditions, are now included on the same platform. Previously these were on a separate system.
The update also includes an irrigation probe dashboard with a soil forecast, indicating where moisture might be after seven days without rain. The dashboard also shows rain amounts, soil moisture levels and temperature measurements, as well as EC measurements for soft fruit growers.
New crop development indicators have also been introduced.
