Soil moisture is one of the most critical elements for successful plant growth and profitable agriculture. We’re lucky in NZ that, for the most part, we’re gifted with (mostly) adequate rainfall to produce high quality primary industry commodities from. It’s our responsibility as land owners and managers that we use this resource in the most efficient way possible, ensuring that we’re not over-irrigating and leaching nutrients, but not under-irrigating and reducing production. Soil moisture is not only pertinent to irrigated farming though, it’s fundamental to the success of all land-based primary industry sectors, even dryland. And at Agri Optics, we wanted to bring a solution to New Zealand’s agriculturalists to help them manage this precious resource more efficiently, without blowing out their budget.

The AquaCheck probe is a high quality, affordable capacitance based soil probe which is compatible with a range of telemetry options and end user platforms. The probes are a vertical-oriented probe that is easy to install, has a short ‘settling’ time and has multiple soil moisture and temperature sensors down their length. Typically, the AquaCheck probes have a soil moisture AND a temperature sensor every 10cm down their length, giving more information to make better decisions on farm. All information from the AquaCheck probes is wirelessly telemetered to AquaCheckWEB where all the soil moisture and temperature data can be viewed, recommendations made and forecasts given for irrigation requirements or soil moisture trends going forward. Additionally, the AquaCheck soil moisture probe data can also be pushed to other websites so that you can view your AquaCheck soil moisture data along-side other information that you may use for your irrigation scheduling.
