Bringing Soil Moisture Information to lifeTeam at FarmIQ on 25/03/19 12:00
FarmIQ has announced a new partnership with Carrfields. Farmers using Carrfields Technology sensors to monitor soil moisture and temperature can now visualise their information in FarmIQ.
Matthew Keen, Carrfields Chief Operating Officer said “Soil moisture data is important, but to be useful it needs to be put into context with pasture or crop growth and feed budgets. FarmIQ makes a great job of showing farmers the ‘so what’ of raw sensor data and we believe it will be a real asset to our customers.”
Darryn Pegram, FarmIQ Chief Executive said “Farmers want to see all their farm information in one place to really understand the relationships between animals, land and feed. The FarmIQ software platform leads the way in gathering information from across the farm. This partnership with Carrfields helps farmers adopt soil moisture devices by making sense of all their information and helping farmers optimise their systems.”
There is no additional cost to farmers that want to see their soil moisture sensor data in FarmIQ. Farmers need to be on FarmIQ’s Performance or Enterprise Dairy/Enterprise Livestock Pack and be using a sensor from the Carrfields Technology range. The Weather Scout and Moisture Scout devices from Carrfields send data to FarmIQ to record soil moisture, soil temperature, rainfall and air temperature.
Carrfields and FarmIQ will be demonstrating the integration at Southern Fieldays in the Farmlands tent at Site 620 the 27–29 March 2019.
