Our Irrigation Management System
“Root-linked” soil tension tracks grapevine stem water tension
SmartVineyards research shows that “root-linked” soil tension tracks grapevine stem water tension with an R-squared greater than 90%. That means you can use soil water tension to directly monitor and manage irrigation and vine stress in every vineyard block, as shown above.
Your installation bundle arrives with everything you need
Your SmartVineyards irrigation management system arrives in a bundle, with everything you need for an easy installation: sensors, monitors, a collector, and a cellular or PC transmitter, installation tools, and easy-to-follow instructions.
Our plug-and-play system is simple to put together and connect
At each sensor site, soil tension sensors are quickly installed at 3 depths in the grapevine root-zone, then plugged into the monitor, which extends above the canopy. Each monitor then quickly links to its collector and to its cellular or PC transmitter and begins sending sensor data to the cloud.
Sensor data is immediately displayed on your browser
From installation on, sensor readings are taken every 30 minutes, and are immediately available through the SmartVineyards website on any browser. We provide a variety of options for comparison and display to help guide and inform each irrigation and stress management decision.
At a Very Affordable Price
Each SmartVineyards tension monitor kit includes everything you need, to install sensors and monitor and report soil tension to a collector and transmitter for relay to your browser, for just $450. Up to 20 tension monitors can report through a single SmartVineyards system.
One collector is needed in each SmartVineyards system, to receive data from up to 20 tension monitors and relay it to the transmitter. A SmartVineyards collector is just $550.
One transmitter is needed in each SmartVineyards system to relay data to the internet. A PC transmitter relays data through a local PC and is just $350. A SmartVineyards cellular transmitter relays data through a local cell tower and is just $950.
Everything you need to install and connect a SmartVineyards system is included in your installation bundle. With the above prices, the bundle price for a tension system with transmitter and collector, and tension monitors in 5 vineyard blocks is just $3,150 with a PC-linked transmitter or just $3,750 with a cellular transmitter.
Sensor data is delivered to the browser on your desktop, laptop, or smart phone for just $15 per monitor plus $15 per transmitter per month, with comparisons, charts, and downloads available to improve every irrigation decision.
The cost of the data from a 5-monitor SmartVineyards system with tension monitors in 5 vineyard blocks is $90 per month - a cost greatly exceeded by improvements in irrigation, quality, and yield.
Compare to systems from Davis, Spectrum, Ranch, or Campbell for cost or benefit.
