Site-Specific IrrigationIrrometer Co. released the new solar-powered IRROmesh System for the agricultural market.
IRROmesh simplifies irrigation management for precision farming. Solar-powered nodes "talk"
to each other, relaying critical data for site-specific irrigation management. This self-initializing,
self-routing and self-healing mesh radio incorporates Irrometer's Watermark Soil Moisture
Sensors and can transmit to the Web for cost-effective and convenient 24/7 data access. Each
node is capable of reading three soil moisture sensors and a soil temperature sensor, along with
inputs for recording irrigation events and rain gauge data. The nodes automatically relay messages
forward, enabling economical data collection over large areas. Data can be stored in the field and
retrieved with a PC.
