The Teralytic wireless NPK soil probes are now available for pre-ordering. These probes will be the first to ship the moment they’re ready in the warehouse—in time for 2019 planting. And until then, pre-order customers will receive regular updates on development and be able to view the status of their order on a personal landing page. Click here to pre-order probes now.
The Teralytic wireless probe contains 26 sensors to provide the most detailed soil quality data available, reporting soil moisture, salinity, and NPK at three different depths, as well as aeration, respiration, air temperature, light, and humidity. With these previously inaccessible types and quantities of data, farmers can manage soil quality with precise control and grow more by using less, while reducing impact on the environment.
The probes connect to a gateway through LoRa wireless technology. The gateway sends data to the cloud via either cellular, satellite, or a standard internet connection, which can be accessed on any cellular device or desktop computer. And farmers get real-time alerts on their phone or desktop when the sensors detect poor soil conditions for their crops.
The cost is $500 per probe, annually. This includes all the hardware and software needed to run the solution as well as data analytics, real-time recommendations, and battery replacement when needed. Our 10-probe Starter Pack includes an Install Kit (regularly $400) and the LoRa gateway to connect the probes (regularly $1,000) for free.
