Live Wet Temperature
From the homepage, you can find the wet temperature of your weather station. It shows you in real time the weather conditions of your plot (updated every 15 minutes).
Minimum temperature maps
Keep an eye on the minimum temperatures around your plots and follow the occurrence of frost live. This feature is available in the "maps" tab of your application.
Weather stations to manage the frost risk
To measure the risk of frost, you need an accurate and complete weather solution, which includes a humidity sensor and a thermometer. As frost is very local, we advise you to have your own stations to install in the heart of your plots.
The basic weather station ✓ Rainfall ✓ Temperature ✓ Humidity ✓ Dew point
To anticipate frost ✓ Wetting rate ✓ Temperature ✓ Humidity level ✓ Dew point
✓ 3 subscription options ✓ Access to data from several stations ✓ Features tailored to your uses
24H WITH SENCROP
I'm one step ahead of frost thanks to the Sencrop solution.
I'm a winegrower and I regularly experience destructive frosts. Last year, I lost 80% of my vineyard. This year, I've bought Sencrop equipment.
I consult the weather forecasts on the application to anticipate the risk of frost. I compare the models using the comparator, and 5 of them are forecasting a severe spell of white frost tonight.
I prepare my antifreeze device and activate my frost alert so that it wakes me up as soon as the wet temperature drops to 1°C.
I consult the map to see the minimum temperatures: they are dropping below 1°C in the early morning. My fears are confirmed.
The alarm goes off! I woke up, activated my anti-freeze device and went about my night with a sound peace of mind. This year, I acted at the right time to avoid losing my crop.
