Irrigation Technology Systems used in TAWC Project
Smart Crop Systems
The SmartCrop™ system is an irrigation management tool that monitors crop water stress
by measuring crop canopy temperature, and then alerts the producer when irrigation is needed.
John Deere Field Connect
Field Connect uses field-installed probes to monitor moisture levels at various depths. It then sends the information to a web-based interface where producers can see the data on their computer or mobile device and make timely irrigation decisions from anywhere.
AquaSpy uses underground soil moisture sensors that communicate with plant roots every three minutes. This information is then relayed to producers' computers where they can read the data provided by AquaSpy to make irrigation decisions.
