Why measure EC?
The salinity of the soil, irrigation water or fertilizer solution is an important parameter affecting the root zone environment of your plants. Any of these factors can have a significant effect on plant growth and quality. The presence of high salt levels is your warning sign to make adjustments. Low-salt levels could lead to nutrient deficiencies. Don’t wait for trouble, measure before the damage shows in your plants.
Why measure pH?
pH levels are important in soils, irrigation water and spray tank solutions. Soil and water pH is the single most important aspect in determining nutrient availability to crops. pH levels in spray tanks determine the effectiveness of pesticides.
The importance of Pest and Disease Management…
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
The importance of Soil and Water Management...
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. Utilize compaction and soil moisture data to make informed management decisions.
