Atlanta, GA – 3/7/17 – Agrisource Data is excited to announce the launch of IntelliRice™ Alternate Wetting and Drying (AWD), a real-time flood irrigation monitoring sensor that helps clients accurately monitor water levels in rice fields. This is a new product for Agrisource Data and fits nicely into their portfolio of remote sensors designed specifically for the precision agriculture industry. This remote sensor is available using any of three (3) different communications protocols: RPMA, LoRa, or cellular.
IntelliRice™ AWD launches March 14, 2017.
AWD is a water-saving technique that leverages this advanced technology to significantly reduce irrigation water consumption in rice fields without decreasing yield. In AWD, irrigation water is applied a few days after the disappearance of the ponded water. Hence, the field gets alternately flooded and non-flooded.
The IntelliRice™ AWD sensor works in conjunction with both IntelliRoot™ soil moisture sensors as well as the WxTrack™ micro-weather station and the Agrisource Data multi-layer intelligence and analytics platform. This allows for precision monitoring and alerting when water is available and irrigation should be started or stopped.
According to Ben Worley, Agrisource Data CEO, “The introduction of this new sensor continues to round out our portfolio which is designed to work together and give our clients the best advantage to reduce fresh water while at the same time maintain or even increase yield.”
About Agrisource Data: Leveraging the latest advances in science and technology, including Internet-of-Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, and cloud-based communication protocols that accelerate data collection and multi-layer analysis across the entire precision agriculture seed-to-shelf spectrum, Agrisource Data delivers the most complete solution in the market for meeting the challenge of global food production.
