AgroSense changes the technology of plant growing

It combines the precision soil state measurements and insect presence observations with the latest science results of irrigation and fertilization control, thus improving the farming technology.

Care without nuisance

Application

AgroSense can help in the most important questions of the agriculture.

Irrigation

Irrigation and frost-protection provides resistance against the increasingly unpredictable weather extremity.
Using adequate irrigation, the soil moisture near rootzone can be kept within the desired range, this will let the plants grow and yield under suitable conditions while expenses stay under control.

irrigation
  • When should we start irrigation?
  • When to stop it?
  • In which part of the day should we do it?
  • Do we expect precipation in the next period?
  • Has the irrigation system started properly? Will it stop?

AgroSense answers to the questions of irrigation!

Nutrient management

Using modern nutrient replenisment, not only the crop yield, but its ripening, quality and durabilty can be taken under control. Exact dosage leads to lower environmental impact, reduces costs, and helps to outcome a more certain harvest. Now, as well as in the future.
Measuring soil or substrate electrical conductivity and plant vegetation index (NDVI) gives a measure of nutrient concentration. Photosynthesis suitable radiation and temperature reading provides a better view of the plant daily lifecycle.

food
  • What is the actual nutrient concentration in the soil?
  • How mutch nutrient has been consumed by the plant? Has the plant taken up any of the provided nutrients?
  • Whether or not last rainfall changed the dissolved salt concentration in the sol?
  • Will be any precipation in the next period?
  • How is the health of the plants?

AgroSense provides a solution for problems of nutrient management!

Cost can be lowered and quality and yield can be better!

Plant protection

Several events may harm plants, like unfavourable change of soil quality, appearing pests, fungal, bacterial or viral infections, natural phenomenas. It is possible to actively defend against many of these by applying frost protection, pesticides, feromon spraying.
Remote traps provide an opportunity to continously monitor insects. By measuring microclimatic changes and applying plant protection algorythms, infection risk can be determined and a scheduled intervention can prevent the disaster.

protect
  • Whether if conditions were suitable for pests to develop?
  • Is a swarm happening now?
  • Has the plant weakened?
  • What kind of meteorological events are expected?
  • How is the plants actual phenological state?

With AgroSense pest control can be more effective!

Devices

AgroSense Base

Data gathered by the AgroSense Nodes are received by the base station via a wireless network. It can use its own integrated sensors or receive external sensors. Their data, along with the data from the nodes, are transmitted via a GPRS module to the AgroSense server. Power is supplied by a solar panel and a battery.

Easy to deploy

There is no need for electric network or LAN . The Base self power by its solar cell and battery. Watching our installation video you deploy the station yourself.

Online meteorological station

The received data is sent by a secure connection over GPRS to the server, where data is accessible by using a simple web browser. Alerts are also configured here. Supporting on-site data access, the web application fits to mobile devices as well.

AgroSense Nodes to expand area covered

The Base station collects and transfers data from 64 Nodes, which can be placed around the Base up to 900m range. The thus formed system provides great solution for open field or greenhouse growing, environmental data, irrigation and nutrient monitoring across the farm.

  • Wind speed and direction
  • Air temperature and humidity
  • Soil temperature
  • Air pressure
  • Global solar radiation (PYR)
  • Photosynthetically active radiation (PAR)

AgroSense Node

The AgroSense Node reads the connected external sensors, and transfers the collected data to the AgroSense Base via a wireless radio link. An AgroSense Base is capable of handling up to 64 Nodes, which may be placed around the Base within the range of 900m. Thus the AgroSense Base (which focuses on meteorological measurements) is expanded by microclimatic or plant-health oriented measurements done in immediate vicinity of the plants. These are like soil moisture, EC, leaf wetness, NDVI. Measurement points may be determined by terrain, soil type, or the irrigation zones.

Precisly adapts to you needs

It measures there and what you need. The locations and numbers of measuring points can be choosen by the spatial differencies, or by the irrigation circles, or by the different crops. We use precise and reliable sensors.

Felxible usage

Your system can be expand with new Nodes. The Node is easy to deploy or relocate for example when you need to detect frost or change crops. Besides its air temp/hum and soil temp sensor the Node can handle 4 additional sensors.

Minimal maintenance needs

The AgroSense Node comes with its own AA sized industrial battery and powers the Node for even 18 months without any service.

Durable

Its weatherproof (UV and waterproof) enclosure ensures long lifetime. The mounting and the antenna is flexible thus it wont get stuck on spreyer's frame.

Graphic user interface

The AgroSense server takes care of the incoming data using latest cloud technologies. Data with proper access rights can be viewed by a simple web browser, thus can we have the proper up-to-date information from the fields and schedule the needed intervention. Data display and management is all web based and accessible from mobile devices. The system provides user customizable alerts, when a value exceeds the threshold, the system can send notification via SMS or e-mail.

The AgroSense Agriculture

Where farmer always knows what happening

Meteorological station

The status of the field can be monitored continously by meteorological data measurements, thus local speciality can be observed.

Sensors

Multiple measurements on the field make possible to recognize the risk of frost or overheating of plants, and give essential information on nutrient management.

Remote pheromone traps

Traps every day count the insects were cought, using this information swarming and hatching of eggs can be predicted.

Irrigation control

Based on precise sensor measurement in root zone, database of soil parameters and rainfall predictions irrigation can automatically controlled.

How AgroSense helps them?

Daniel Bako
Since I use AgroSense, I can precisely set nutrient's concentration for my paprika plants. Thus I can irrigate exactly the amount needed and when it needed. I can monitor my greenhouses from everywhere using my smartphone. AgroSense take care meanwhile I sleep well.

Daniel Bako - Bakó Kertészeti Kft., (Hungary) CEO

Gyorgy Csizmadia
In Hungary, the successful fruit growing requires irrigation. Using the AgroSense system the water content int root zone can be easily monitored in the root zone thus the irrigarion can be optimized.

Gyorgy Csizmadia - Fruitveb (Hungary), vice-president

Balazs Varga
We were looking for a solution to monitor the experiments on our experimental site, and we found AgroSense fits the best to our needs. We prefer AgroSense, since with AgroSense Nodes we can gather data both on open fields, and in our greenhouses too.
