Field Sensors

Hortau offers three types of sensors to manage your irrigation and the growing environment:

  • Temperature (unshielded):  Our unshielded temperature sensors can either be used for measuring soil temperature or night time air temperature. Soil temperature is typically followed to properly time fertilizer injections and night time air temperature for frost protection.

  • Air temperature and Relative Humidity:  This sensor measures both parameters while using only one port on the TX3 Field Monitoring Station.  Radiation shields provide for accurate air temperature measurement at daytime.  Relative humidity can be used for mildew index calculations at field level or to manage venting in high tunnels.
