Solutions for Agricultural Monitoring and Control
Doug Stewart, Lichen Estate, Anderson Valley, Proprietor/Winegrower, "The temperature data this past week has been great. Having solid data on the upper and lower zones saved a bunch of water (hundreds of thousands of gallons in our first three frost events this year).
Edgar Lantz, owner of Sam Brannan Vineyards, "I saved 60% on my water use in the first year.”
You have a lot invested in your vineyards. Just like your financial portfolio you've got to monitor that investment. Camalie Networks can help. Whether you are a grower, an owner, a vineyard manager or even a winemaker. You can benefit greatly from knowing exactly what is going on in the vineyard, in the air above it, in the canopy and in the ground below. Get a handle on the water in your soil and use only what you need where you need it.
Our products not only monitor but also enable control of irrigation systems either by remote control or fully automatic soil moisture/ET based/Tank Level control. The CS3 system self documents its performance providing verification that your directives such as irrigation sets, have been carried out and resulted in the desired soil moisture or tank fill levels. We have found that this technology can be a distinct differentiator when it comes to selling your product. Having a monitoring system shows your technological savvy and attention to detail in growing.
Camalie Networks' wireless monitoring and control technology brings precision control to growing at an affordable price for the first time. This enables sampling at higher density which makes precision farming practical for the first time. The system is scalable and extensible which means it can be adapted to use other sensors and provide customized interfaces and control using open source code that comes with the system.
Weather, soil moisture monitoring and valve actuation provide the capability to "set and forget" soil moisture levels. This new capability meets the requrements of California state law for large landscapes. See section 492.7 that states "Automatic irrigation controllers utilizing either evapotranspiration or soil moisture sensor data shall be required for irrigation scheduling in all irrigation systems. " Call us and get the full story.
2016 marks the 8th year Camalie Networks has been in business, now with over 200 stations at 17 installations from Hollister to Hopland including Stage Coach Vineyards in the Napa Valley where 17 nodes measure soil moistures, ambient temps and humidities spread out across 1500 acres of vines.
