Challenge Agriculture has developped a new tool for drip irrigation management : real-time imaging of wet bulb.
We generate in real-time, on your Web account, a color video as well as a graph displaying 8 median curves.
We install a Monitor R2-DX® connecting 16 sensors = 1 soil temperature sensor + 15 WATERMARK® sensors + 1 rain gauge and water counter.
Those 16 sensors are accuratly installed on 4 different bulbs, generaly on 2 different rows.
Measure, register and transmission are done with a frequency adapted to this irrigation mode, and generate 2 different tools : a video in color and a graph with 8 median curves. On the video, one can see evoluate a “statistical bulb”, made of the 4 different instrumented bulbs, as if recording underground with a camera. On the graph, the medians show caracteristics of the bulb (by level in soil, by distance to drip, and the periphery of bulb too.
Imaging of wet bulb is a powerful agronomic tool, that we install on farms searching for performance. Imaging is a very pragmatic approach of drip irrigation.
Imaging allows management of the bulb and liberates full performance of drip irrigation, in terms of water & energy savings, yield, soil structure …
