Solarcrop is the first pyranometer or intelligent irradiance sensor, patented and accessible to all. Benefit from an ultra-local measurement of solar radiation, essential for optimal management of your irrigation.
To be combined with other weather stations
The irrigation sensor that stands out
The Irricrop solution includes 3 connected weather stations, each dedicated to a precise weather measurement. Among them, the Solarcrop is dedicated to solar radiation measurement. Why is this measurement important in agriculture? Radiation, like water, is the basis of photosynthesis and therefore of the development process of your crops. Thus, the measurement of irradiance is one of the data that allows you to model your available water resources to know when to irrigate.
Measurement at the heart of your plots
Automation of ETP and water balance
After 2 years of R&D, the Solarcrop incorporates numerous innovations that have enabled it to be patented. The measurement of solar radiation is thus ultra reliable, with a margin of error of only ±2%.
One solution for several balances
Your soil type may differ from one plot to another or even a few metres. Set up different water balances in the application, based on the same weather sensors placed in your plots. Just add a "crop type" variable and adapt your soil type
Easy to install and use
The sensors can be installed in 15 minutes. Thanks to the solar radiation measurement, you can easily visualise your evapotranspiration (ETP) and your water balances in the application. At the tap of a screen you can select your crop and soil types in a matter of seconds.
All the other weather indicators are available
With the complete irrigation pack, you'll benefit from 2 other precision weather stations in addition to the sensor dedicated to irradiance, as well as all the features of the application (history, connection to DSTs, weather alerts, rain radar, weather forecasts and wind data, etc.)
THE WEATHER STATION FOR IRRIGATION
An irradiance sensor that shines!
The Solarcrop is the most accessible and innovative solution to monitor the water balance of each of your plots, using local data. It can be used with the Raincrop and Windcrop weather stations in order to control your irrigation.
Measurement without altering the solar spectrum
A filter reduces light intensity to a measurable level without altering the solar spectrum or degrading the measurement.
Low temperature dependency
Optimised electronics to limit and correct for thermal drift.
The sensor is calibrated with a calibrator that perfectly reproduces the solar spectrum, thus taking into account losses due to the atmosphere.
Waterproof case designed for farmers
The Sencrop case is subjected to a battery of quality tests to ensure perfect waterproofing. It is therefore resistant to phytosanitary products and any other agricultural use.
Quick installation of the Solarcrop
The Solarcrop is a sensor to be installed on the Windcrop's mast, facing away from the latter to avoid drift due to shade.
Numerous technical qualities make this sensor a reliable ally in daily use.
The battery is designed to withstand various weather patterns and has an autonomy ranging from 1 to 2 years.
Each station has a GPS tracker to prevent possible risks of theft.
The data related to your station is updated in real time in the application
Find your data in the application, from any type of device: computer, smartphone or tablet.
Low bandwidth network connection
The station sends data to the application thanks to its connection to the Sigfox and/or Lora' low bandwidth network, covering most white areas!
Reliability of the data
At Sencrop, a dedicated team works to guarantee reliable weather readings and continuous data transmission.
