Viridix system’s 3 main components are
its solar powered Data logger, RooTense sensors, and decision support software.
RooTense, our self-calibrating soil moisture sensors, senses what the root senses. The sensor measures the water available to your plants, (known as Water Potential) and other important irrigation parameters – delivering the most accurate measurements for optimal irrigation in the market.
These multi-depth Sensors can be planted at multiple depths, providing growers with a comprehensive overview of soil conditions.
Installing it in the field is simple: just plant the solar powered sensor where needed – and at any depth needed to obtain a full picture of the conditions down in the soil and around your plant roots.
These most cost-effective Plug & Play sensors begin transmitting readings immediately when planted – No calibration or maintenance required!
The real time data from the sensors is transmitted to the cloud, where data is processed and presented in easy to understand interface.
To put it simply – this is a new, trouble-free and cost-effective version of a tensiometer that is scalable and connected to the internet.
Our sensors are built for autonomous irrigation (IOD), to optimize yields in orchards, vineyards, greenhouses and more.
Viridix decision support system
Leverage accurate data to make smart decisions
Making the right irrigation decisions, continuously, can mean the difference between bumper crops and poor yields. Viridix system automates the analysis and processing of all the relevant data for optimal irrigation:
- Water potential – accurate and timely data
- Virtual/local weather data
- Soil characteristics and temperature
- Recommended irrigation protocols
The decision support system integrates all the data inputs from the sensors and displays the processed data in a clear, easy to use and understand interface so you can make smart data-driven decisions. The result – optimization of irrigation decisions and actions that maximize productivity, reduce resource consumption, increase yields and maintain crop quality.
Alerts and recommendations – Viridix is your virtual watchdog that keeps you informed of extreme conditions that require your attention – providing you with alerts based on preset thresholds covering irregularities in soil moisture, salinity levels anomalies, plant stress, low level irrigation and more.
Connectivity – Viridix system also supports connectivity with external irrigation control systems by leading global companies, thus enabling you to streamline your automated irrigation control, remotely.
