Soil moisture

Soil temperature

The soil temperature as measured by the probe.

Temperature

The average temperature value for each hour of the day (°C)

Humidity

The relative humidity value, as a percentage.

Evapotranspiration

The reflection of the energy available to evaporate water, and of the wind available to transport the water vapour from the ground up into the lower atmosphere.

Moisture deficit

Rainfall

The amount of precipitation in millimetres per square metre (mm).

Wind speed

The wind speed at 10m above the surface, in km/h.

Temperature Humidity Index

THI accounts for the combined effects of environmental temperature and relative humidity, and is a useful and easy way to assess the risk of heat stress.

Heat Load Index

An indicator of the environmental heat load and physiological stress placed on cattle.

Accumulated Heat Load Units

Cattle may accumulate heat during the day (the body temperature rises) and dissipate this heat during the night. If there is insufficient night cooling, cattle may enter the following day with an accumulated heat load.

Growing Degree Days

GDD are a measure of heat accumulation used to predict plant and animal development rates.

About this demonstration

This is an example of actual telemetry and forecasting from a soil sensor.

This demo shows the 7 day forecast, soil moisture & temperature summary as well as irrigtation recommendations.

You can also experiment with the irrigation simulation and explore historical recorded telemetry.
