Pessl instruments products have an open and free to use API for most of their products. Therefore, we can connect and automatically send data to other systems. We currently partner with FarmIQ and RegenNZ.
Our partnership with FarmIQ means that data is readily accessible from your FarmIQ account and no manual input is required. Soil moisture, soil temperature, rainfall, and air temperature data can all be seen.
RegenNZ uses localised data from our Moisture Scout package to provide farmers with irrigation scheduling recommendations. Interpretations about irrigation timing and depth can be complex and opinions will differ from one farm manager to the next. Regen uses soil moisture data and weather forecasts to recommend the timing and depth of irrigation. This takes the stress out of irrigation and allows consistent results to be achieved by all operators – regardless of experience.
