Pessl instruments GmbH is one of the leading producers of hardware and software for SMART AGRICULTURE.
ON YOUR FIELD OR FARM
Weather plays the most important role in the planning of the majority of agricultural activities. When to seed? When to irrigate? How much to irrigate? When to spray and how much? When is it necessary to protect crops from frost?
Our weather stations will help you make the right decision at the right time. Based to the data measured in your field, combined with weather forecast, you will be able to make informed decisions about which steps should be taken next to ensure the best quality and quantity of your produce.PLANT PROTECTION
PREDICT INCONVENIENCES AND PROTECT YOUR CROPS
To ensure the best quality produce and the highest possible yield, plants need to be protected from harmful weather conditions already at an early stage, when they are still delicate and particularly prone to diseases. We cannot change the weather, but we can turn it to our plants’ advantage and prevent major disasters.
By taking measurements of micro climatic conditions in the field with iMETOS weather stations and combining them with intelligent data analysis, our FieldClimate.com platform will provide you with disease models for you to use in your field.HOW ARE YOUR CROPS FEELING?
WITH PROPER IRRIGATION MANAGEMENT - JUST RIGHT.
Continuous real-time monitoring of soil, plant and atmosphere variables, while also taking into account the changes in irrigation system, are highly important for setting up irrigation practices.
Detailed information provides the basis for more efficient irrigation management, which results in a more optimized use of farm resources, and can also be used for irrigation automation.
Fertilizers are precious resources which should be applied with care – for the reduction of expenses as well as the minimization of environmental impact. An essential precondition is therefore the knowledge of plant available soil nutrients. Currently, soil nutrient analysis is still mostly done by laboratory tests – a time consuming and expensive procedure, often not fast enough for immediate reaction.
Metos NPK is the first mobile measurement tool allowing the simultaneous measurement of nitrate (NO3), phosphate (P2O5) and potassium (K) concentrations with one portable device. Metos NPK offers low cost analysis results with no time delay for immediate adaption of fertilizer programs. The development of Metos NPK originated from an interdisciplinary consortium of researchers (Vienna University of Technology (A), University Bremen (D), University of Warmia and Mazury (Pl)) and is now integrated into product development of Pessl Instruments. The sensor bases on lab-on-a-chip technologies, scaling down laboratory technologies to compact portable devices.
