UGT & ICT International have been working closely together for many years to bring best monitoring technologies to scientists and managers of agriculture and the natural environment. This to enable a better understanding of water and water fluxes in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. These topics grows in importance as the with population pressure and climate change understanding and management of water becomes ever more critical.
Lysimeters are a proven tool for ecosystem studies. They are the reference system for matter and energy fluxes in rather undisturbed systems. Big enough to provide a root space for representative plant stands, they measure precise and detailed enough to describe fluxes at high resolution. Pesticide leaching, and greenhouse gas emissions can be quantified for the well defined lysimeter volume.
IoT Monitoring Solutions for the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum.
ICT International manufactures instrumentation which is key to measuring the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum, enabling in-situ real time measurement of sap flow (SFM1) and plant water potential (PSY1) in absolute terms.
ICT International products are specifically designed to be deployed in rugged field environments, use low-power, have wireless and internet connection. These instruments have been installed around the world – from the Amazon rainforests to the Canadian Permafrost.
In 2019 ICT International released a suite of integrated IoT enabled sensing solutions
designed specifically to measure the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. IoT monitoring systems offer new opportunities for monitoring and management in many diverse applications such as ecophysiology research, commercial orchard production and lysimeters.
This workshop will provide an overview of these new technologies and training in their use. Also future monitoring and management opportunities from IoT technologies.
