KestrelMet 6000 Cellular Model with the list of sensor below

Leaf Wetness:
A Leaf Wetness Sensor measures the moisture on plant leaves, giving precise data for better management of plant health. Its benefits include accurate moisture measurement, aiding in disease prevention, resource conservation, ease of use, cost-effectiveness, and remote monitoring capabilities. These features help maximize agricultural yields and manage resources efficiently.
Solar Irradiance:
Solar irradiance sensors, or pyranometers, are valuable in farming for measuring the power of sunlight, which is vital for plant growth, photosynthesis, and solar energy applications. They help farmers in optimizing crop placement and irrigation by understanding sunlight patterns, contribute to research in agronomy, and aid in the efficient operation of solar-powered farm equipment.

KestrelMet 6000 Soil Sensor Array Kit
Soil Sensor Array Kit is an advanced solution for soil moisture measurement by integrating temperature sensors. These sensors not only enhance the precision of the Watermark readings but also offer growers an expanded view of soil conditions. The soil sensor system includes three probes, each attached to a 4.57-meter cable. These probes are designed to measure soil water tension utilizing a Watermark sensor, while also recording soil temperature just below 2.54 cm above the Watermark sensor. Typically, these probes are installed at varying depths, aligning with the root zones of the intended plants. Get it here.
