Leafcrop wetness sensor
The Leafcrop wetness sensor is a piece of precision equipment that provides all the data fruit growers need.
How Does the Wetness Sensor Work?
Moisture sensors allow farmers and fruit growers to collect accurate, reliable data right from the heart of their groves. Access this data directly from the application to help you take action against diseases (mildew, powdery mildew, scab…), to spray at the best time and to prevent the risk of frost thanks to a customisable alarm system.

Clear Data History
Your moisture sensor sends you real-time measurements through the Sencrop application. You can also use the app to access your data history and anticipate your actions.
Set up your own sensor between the leaves of your trees to receive ultra-local data. Combine this information with network data for even more accurate and reliable measurements.
Customise the Sencrop application to receive data that is relevant to your everyday use. You can also configure alerts (SMS, email or notifications) to plan your actions in case of freezing temperatures.
Connect your application to decision support tools such as Rimpo or the NIAB irrigation scheduling system to anticipate risks and diseases and make the right calls.
A high-precision wetting sensor
2019 SIVAL SILVER Medal winner, the Leafcrop sensor belongs at the heart of your orchards and vineyards. Designed to address leaf-related issues, it helps you prevent foliar diseases and make the right call when the temperatures freeze. That’s what makes it such an invaluable tool for precision fruit tree cultivation.
To optimise data collection, the wetness sensor simulates the natural characteristics of a leaf (visual appearance, curvature, texture, etc.).
Place your moisture sensor at the heart of the foliage, wherever your plot presents the highest risks. Monitor the data before it reaches critical levels.
On-the go sensor
Place your sensor near the frost-sensitive buds and you’ll be alerted before it starts to affect the leaf.
Three temperature and humidity sensors are combined to deliver more reliable weather data and prevent measurements from drifting over time.
The antenna is connected to the low power wide area network Sigfox. This avoids data disruption even in dead zones.
The data sent by the wetness sensor is updated every 15 minutes to help you make the right decisions. Data is recorded on a continuous basis and you receive the average value.
The Benefits of a Wetness Sensor
The Leafcrop moisture sensor is a must-have tool for fruit tree growers. What are its perks?
Install one or several weather sensors in your fields. Set them up so they can collect data from the most useful locations.
On-board motion detector to prevent the risk of theft.
Use any device (computer, smartphone, tablet) to connect through the application.
From 2 to 3 years on a single charge depending on climate.
The stations are tested to ensure the reliability of the data from the rain gauge, thermometer and hygrometer.
Access recent data, updated every 15 minutes.
THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT US!
I’ve put up one alert when I first got the station. It will come back next spring for our cherry trees for frost.
If it gets below 4°C, with a high humidity on the leaf, it sends me an alarm and we can do something about it like putting a frost buster on it and get the temperature up a bit around the cherry trees.
