Aquaflex is a vital part of any irrigation system which measures two primary variables that control plant growth:
The Aquaflex soil moisture sensor enables you to balance the soil moisture and soil temperature to maximise growth and quality – a delicate balancing act only possible with the correct data.
Over watering wastes water, energy and soluble nutrients – all of which you are paying for.
Optimise Plant Production
Plant production can be improved by balancing soil temperatures and irrigation application.
Instigating a soil moisture monitoring system will help you prove your environmental management systems are robust.
Assist with difficult Irrigation Management Decisions
Without accurate soil moisture data is almost impossible to determine the current situation and what the best course of action may be.
AQUAFLEX uses a unique measurement technique with a 3m (10’) long flexible tape to provide measurement of 6 litres (370 cubic inches) of soil. It is laid in the soil horizontally or at a slight angle at the depth (or depths) of interest. The sensor averages over the full length of the sensor, this spatial averaging provides very accurate moisture readings.
AQUAFLEX is the only Soil Moisture Sensor that overcomes the problems of measuring soil moisture content at one point only in a relatively small amount of soil.
The Aquacom system is made up from three core parts.
The Aquacom system is a vital part of any Farm Management system and enables increased yield and quality by collecting the data needed to make informed decisions.
