Testimonials
The new technology you added on the enviroscan by inserting a rain gauge is real working and very accurate. I must say it helping me to know the actual rain received in a day and even if my irrigation team forget to record the rainfall I have actual data on line. Good job.

The Enviroscan is giving us additional confidence to reduce water use in our strawberry production. - Charles Gaskain
I've been using EnviroSCAN's and their services for the last 3 years on a variety of horticultural crops. Our production sites are scattered over several counties so the EnviroSCAN is an invaluable tool in helping to schedule irrigation and check that automatic systems are working. Their service backup is flexible and very helpfull - Sean Finlayson, S&A Group Holdings Ltd
Since installing EnviroSCAN, we feel that we have more control over our irrigation and the plants' water requirements. The website shows up to date graphs that indicate water usage. This shows the depth to which the plants are using water. We are installing more EnviroSCAN, and will have one at every site. - Paul Hamlyn Farm Manager Bardsley Farms
The Enviroscan system has helped us to manage our water use more efficiently and we have made significant savings on fertiliser as a result. - Steven McGuffie, New Farm Produce, Lichfield
Just a note to let you know how pleased we are with your soil moisture sense systems that are installed across a range of our vegetable crops.

This is the fourth year we have made full use of them and my growing team use them as one of their most important management tools every day when planning irrigation for the day or week ahead. When you are as spread out as we are they are an essential tool that is used first thing every morning when my managers get in the office, even if it’s to get a feel of rainfall round our fields.

When applied irrigation can cost up to £50/ acre inch its essential we don’t waste it by using water unnecessarily and likewise when we are doing scab control on potatoes. It has become a very important part of our daily monitoring simply because we cannot be in all the fields every day with a fork. It’s also helped us later in the season when we are trying to dry crops out prior to harvest or getting them to use water from depth.

Keep up the good work and we will continue to use your services which are no doubt enabling us to save a lot of money whilst helping quality.

Yours sincerely

The benefits of EnviroSCAN to my business are:- Saves time and money travelling. Gives me the ability to look on a laptop and monitor crop water usage and water application. Helps with the understanding of crop water uptake to apply water more efficiently and to maximize quality and yields. - Nick Sheppherd Agrimarc Ltd
We have been using EnviroSCAN for over 8 years. EnviroSCANs have enabled us to gain a greater understanding of water application.and plant usage. We use the EnviroSCAN data to schedule applications. Using EnviroSCAN has helped us to increase average yields and impove fruit quality thus maximising irrigation efficiency. Untill this year all of our EnviroSCAN probes have been installed in soil grown crops, however we now have one installed in a substrate system. This has produced some interesting data and will help us further in improving our irrigation management. One of the great things is all of the irrigation team have remote access to data so they can see the results of their work. - Tom Pearson, Manager Hugh Lowe farms

Irrigation Scheduling Services

We supply the world leading Sentek EnviroSCAN™ soil moisture monitoring probe with automated GPRS remote data collection.  In addition we provide a complete installation, data management, web based data hosting and interpretation service to our clients.

This data is collected remotely via GPRS and securely displayed on the internet.  Our client irrigation managers are able to access their information from any internet enable device, be it computer or smart phone.

 

Example data can be viewed by logging in using the username of 'demo' and password of 'demo', you will then be able to see the data as if you are one of our clients

 

We use the powerful Irrimax8 graphical software to display EnviroSCAN™ soil moisture data in a clear and intuitive format.

seperate

A graph of the separate sensors allows us to see exactly at what depth and what rate the crop is drawing water.

We can also see how effective irrigation has been at refilling the soil profile.  If you have a large deficit in the top 40cm, just wetting the top 10cm will not optimise production



summed
A summed graph gives you a very visual picture of how much water remains available to the crop. The primary aim is to keep in the green zone where water is freely available to the crop.
