Plant, Soil and Weather Monitoring - Thermoline Scientific is proud to introduce the Spectrum Technologies range of measuring equipment and instrumentation to assist with your day-to-day agriculture and horticulture measurements.
Spectrum Technologies Plant, Soil and Weather Monitoring
Complete Plant Health
Pests and diseases can reduce plant quality and yield, and pesticides add significant input costs. Protect your plants by submitting environmental conditions to disease and insect models. These models forecast disease and insect pressure using field-tested and validated algorithms. SpecWare™ disease alerts can assist pesticide application timing, facilitate an IPM approach, and improve plant health.
All crops require proper nutrient levels to maintain top quality and achieve maximum economic yield. Measure NO3 -, Na+, K+, Ca2+, chlorophyll, pH and EC to monitor nutrients in the soil and plant. Measurements can be made quickly, accurately and easily with in-field handheld meters. Immediately analyse soil or plant tissue and increase profits with well timed fertiliser applications that produce a higher quality crop.
Soil and Water Testing
Plant growth is supported by a strong root system. Along with proper nutrition levels, plants need access to adequate air and water in the soil to develop a strong root system. Determine soil strength by measuring compaction levels at multiple depths. Monitor soil moisture over time with in-ground sensors and in multiple locations with portable soil moisture meters. Utilise compaction and soil moisture data to make informed management decisions.
Weather plays a key role in plant health. Spectrum offers a variety of WatchDog® Weather Stations, Mini Stations, Micro Stations, and Sprayer Stations for monitoring site-specific areas to determine and manage microclimates. WatchDog stations are customisable, allowing growers to monitor the inputs that are essential to their operations.
Numerous sensors are available to measure key parameters such as soil moisture, light, air temperature, relative humidity, rainfall, wind speed and direction, and to calculate evapotranspiration rates, degree days, and other important metrics used to grow and manage healthy crops.
All environmental data is logged at user-defined intervals for tracking trends over time, reporting capabilities, and at-a-glance monitoring to help growers make informed decisions.
Take monitoring one step further by adding an IPM disease and insect package. Use additional parameters such as leaf wetness to determine when the conditions are right for a particular disease.
