A compact weather station
Every farmer knows how much rainfall, temperature and relative humidity can vary from field to field. For measuring this data, Pessl Instruments is introducing LoRAIN.
By the use of crop evapotranspiration better plan the irrigation, save water, money and time.
Helps prevent animal health problems that occur in houses with nonstandard climatic conditions.
Plant disease model calculation to improve plant protection and prevent crop losses.
Work planning on farms — it saves time and makes farming even more efficient.
COMPACT & SIMPLE PRECISION FARMING EQUIPMENT ON A BUDGET
Every farmer knows how much rainfall, temperature and relative humidity can vary from field to field. For measuring this data, Pessl Instruments is introducing LoRAIN. Make use of modern communication infrastructures for work planning and disease management decision on your fields. LoRaWAN® communication enables cost effective and timely monitoring of rainfall, actual temperature and relative humidity on your fields. With this data we can offer spray weather, work force planning, models for disease risks and infection dates for many crops, data can be used to produce a highly reliable localised weather forecast with MOS technology and virtual sensors for wind speed and global radiation are added to complete the information needed for intelligent and pro-active farming.
Communication: Both product variations exist in LoRaWAN® and NBIoT versions.
LoRAIN — Rain only
THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN DO
LoRAIN is designed to be easily connected to an existing LoRaWAN® network. For remote situations without the availability of a commercially operated LoRaWAN® network Pessl Instruments partners will support you with a farm based LoRaWAN® network which enables you to install all available LoRa® senzors – from Pessl Instruments or other vendors.
WORK PLANNING TOOLS BASED ON WEATHER FORECAST.
The spray window helps identify suitable periods for the application of crop protection measures by showing suitable (green), less suitable (yellow) and unsuitable (red) periods for application. The conditions are calculated from wind, precipitation, air temperature, relative humidity and delta T.
CERCOSPORA BETICOLA DISEASE MODEL
This simple risk model is used to evaluate, if C. beticola could be expected at all. If the incubation period could be fulfilled within the last 2 weeks, a value of 1 of incubation is shown, if not, the value is 0. Besides this model also a model for sporulation is shown. For sporulation, optimal conditions of 48 hours of high relative humidity with an average temperature of 30°C are used. For the interpretation of data: The risk is 0 if the incubation period has been longer than 2 weeks. If this is not the case, the model output will be 1. If there is a sporulation model result of higher than 10% calculated within the last week, the risk will be shown to be 2 and if the sporulation result is higher than 30% the risk output will be 3.
