Here at Agri Optics NZ we’re excited to announce that we’re the New Zealand New Zealand distributor for AquaCheck soil moisture probes. While soil moisture management isn’t typically part of a Precision Ag service, at the end of the day it all goes hand in hand with mapping and measuring soil types, delineating different management areas, in particular for Variable Rate Irrigation, and then scheduling the correct or most informed irrigation depths to those given areas. To do this and meet the growing New Zealand demand for more efficient irrigation management we felt there was a strong need for a competitively priced soil moisture probe that was robust and allowed farmers to afford more than one soil moisture probe for their whole pivot or farm. To us here at Agri Optics it was also important that these probes could be easily installed and settle in a short time frame without taking months to give sensible readings. Another key aspect that was also important was that these probes could be easily taken out for harvest or the likes and put back in the same place next year. The AquaCheck probe provides all of these key traits that we were looking for and we’re really excited to bring it the New Zealand market as of 25th April 2015.
AquaCheck probes are quality and affordable capacitance based soil moisture probes which are compatible with a range of telemetry options and end-user platforms. AquaCheck also offer and online soil moisture management software platform to host, process and display soil moisture and related data. AquaCheck’s technology is used to simply visualise the dynamics of plant-water-soil-atmospherre interactions within any crop. Irrigators use the date generated by the AquaCheck probes and axillary sensors to manage their day-to-day irrigation scheduling requirements.
AquaCheck has more than 20,000 probes installed in more than 20 countries around the world, highlighting that they’ve got a quality product and it’s here to stay to supply accurate and reliable soil moisture information to land managers around the world.
The adoption of accurate soil moisture sensing technology will have a profound effect on your production and profitability. It will be a win-win situation, which will result in increased pasture growth or crop yields, better quality produce and decreased water and electricity use.
AquaCheck have a range of soil moisture probes available to suit every need, however we feel a select few are best suited for the New Zealand market and these are:
