Sensoterra Soil Moisture Sensors: Transforming Vineyard Management

At Sensoterra, our philosophy is to provide data that is easy to use and can be simply integrated into management platforms for the unique needs of various industries, and we are excited to share a recent success story from a vineyard owner who has experienced the transformative benefits of integrating our sensors with the eVineyard platform.

Real-World Benefits

Cory Michal of Fallon Place Wine, recently shared his experience, highlighting the impact of Sensoterra sensors on their vine health and water management practices. After struggling to find a durable and accurate moisture sensor, he came across Sensoterra. “It took me ages to find a durable and accurate moisture sensor.” Sensoterra soil moisture sensors are built for the field – they are 100% wireless, with built-in data loggers, LoRaWAN antenna, and a long-lasting battery – making them perfect for agricultural and landscaping projects.

 Seamless Integration

A key advantage of Sensoterra sensors is their seamless integration with platforms like eVineyard. In cooperation with Michal, and the eVineyard team, we were able to support seamless integration into Michal’s existing eVineyard account. By feeding data into the eVineyard platform, the sensors allowed the Michal to create detailed models of soil moisture across different root zone depths. This capability enabled him to monitor and maintain proper moisture levels, which is crucial for healthy vine growth.

Improved Vine Health

The impact on the vineyard was clear: “The vines look a lot healthier this year utilizing the tool with the adjusted soil profile.” By using Sensoterra sensors to maintain optimal soil moisture levels, the vineyard saw noticeable improvements in vine health. This is a testament to the precision and reliability of our sensors, which provide accurate data essential for effective water management.

Scalability and Future Potential

Looking ahead, Michal expressed plans to expand the use of Sensoterra sensors: “I’ll probably buy one for each of the other blocks over the winter if eVineyard builds support for multiple data feeds per block.”  This highlights the scalability of our sensors, which can be easily installed across any field or area. As more platforms support multiple data feeds, the potential for even more detailed soil moisture insights grows, further enhancing water management practices.
