Implementation of precision agriculture solution SynField in Metochi, Argolidos

The installation of four SynField systems in an olive grove with a total area of ​​400 acres in Metochi, Argolidos, was completed.

SynField systems were placed at representative points (at different altitudes) inside the olive grove to record the conditions prevailing throughout the olive grove.

 

Two of the installations include a Davis Vantage Pro2 weather station that records ambient temperature and relative humidity, wind intensity and direction, real-time rainfall,  a Meter Group Teros-12 soil moisture, temperature and electrical conductivity sensor at the selected point and depth and an Apogee pyranometer that records solar radiation. These sensors are connected to a SynField X3 node (version 2021), which sends the measurements to the SynField web platform.

 

The other two installations include a sensor that records the ambient temperature and relative humidity , a Meter Group 10HS soil moisture sensor that records the humidity at the selected point and depth and an Apogee pyranometer that records the solar radiation. Each installation includes a SynField X5 device where the above sensors are connected. The sensor data per installation are sent to the SynField web platform via the mobile network while it is powered by a solar panel and a rechargeable battery.
