Case Study: Flax

Improve crop treatment thanks to ultralocal precision

Reduce the number of back and forth trips needed for spraying—intervene only when necessary, if conditions are optimal, and wind levels are low: the local data collected from your station in real time are instrumental in deciding which measures to take in eliminating the risk of crop disease.

  • Trigger your decision support tools based on ultralocal information
  • Make the right agronomic choices at the right times
  • Equip yourself with an affordable mobile weather station

Growth Stages

Having knowledge of flax’s growth stages (flowering, maturity, etc.) makes it possible to better control which crop interventions are needed at which juncture.

Thanks to the Sencrop app’s adjustable level/day measurements, as well as rain accumulation gauge, the flax cultivator and the scutcher can know at any given moment which stage of growth their flax is at.

Sencrop helps you to better organize your workload in order to schedule the weeding, spinning, and baling of your flax according to local climate conditions.


Rain, moisture, and temperature are all potential factors in the proliferation of powdery mildew and septoria in flax.

With the Sencrop alert system, you can receive warnings via text, email, or alarm clock of certain present conditions that may lead to the appearance of disease.


The cause of many back and forth trips, the time for retting is influenced by certain weather variables, and is determined via visual analysis by the scutcher whether it is more appropriate to spin or harvest the flax.

With the Sencrop station, you can stay informed in real time of specific and ultralocal weather conditions that could be affecting your flax crops.

In the words of a Sencropper

Paul-Henri, farm operator, Outarville - Loriet, France

“What’s smart about this device is that because it monitors temperature and humidity, I can be 25 kilometers away, doing business with clients, or travelling abroad, and I am still able to send information to my employees and say: “Look, it hasn’t rained. Can you go spray crop protection in a certain field.” It means I don’t always have to be on-site. It saves me from making 50-kilometer round trips in the car."
