New weight scale lets you know if plants need water

For some plants measuring the root zone moisture via weight is more effective than with moisture sensors. 30MHz has a new wireless weight scale with which you see at a glance if your plants are in need of watering. This helps you gain insights about topics like water management, vaporization, and Integrated Pest Management

Especially in potted plants or young plants, segments have to work with pots too small for a sensor. Some growers use plugs instead of pots for young plants. For them, an easy way to get an estimation of the moisture level is to weigh the container. 

The 30MHz platform measures the weight of your growing medium 24/7, visualizes it, and allows you to consult those measurements from any device. When you have created the overviews, you can always check if it is time to take action. That comes with several benefits to your business.

Firstly, it offers insights to improve your water management. By using the scale, you get an accurate impression of the right time to water your plants. A timely irrigation is part of an optimized IPM strategy: if you water too soon, too late, too often, or too little, your plants will be more vulnerable to pests or disease. You can also combine the measurements of the wireless weight scale in the same graph as PAR or temperature measurements.
