Mar 15, 2019Soil moisture probe technology has advanced in recent years
CropLogic targeted southern Idaho when it opened a U.S. office because the company feels its irrigation technology would be especially useful to potato growers.
A recent story in the Times-News in Twin Lakes highlights CropLogic’s soil moisture probe, which uses electric currents to measure soil moisture. The voltage is low enough not to hurt the crops, wrote Heather Kennison. The data is sent once per hour to a satellite, with growers being able to access it at any time, as opposed to earlier probes that needed to be hooked up to a computer.
“Anytime you can get information, that helps you raise a better crop,” CropLogic’s Scott Barclay told the Times-News. “Especially with potatoes, quality is huge.”
