The KestrelMet 6000 AG can be customized by adding sensors for monitoring soil moisture, soil temperature, leaf wetness, and solar irradiance.
The soil sensor array measures soil moisture and temperature conditions at three depths, providing reliable profile data that corresponds to the entire root zone, allowing the grower to optimize irrigation strategies.
Leaf wetness and solar irradiance sensors provide precise crop and environmental information to ensure the most effective integrated pest management program.

ALL-IN-ONE DESIGN WITH PLUG-AND-PLAY SENSORS
The KestrelMet 6000 is an all-in-one cellular station with a one-click ordering experience. Equipped with an integrated cellular modem, high-power photovoltaic panel, battery, and intelligent power management the KestrelMet requires no external power source or Wi-Fi connectivity required. You no longer have to rely on regional meteorological measurements to manage your systems, schedules, or software. With site-specific information based on your crop and conditions, you can improve irrigation efficiency to maximize yields and reduce waste and costs. The KestrelMet 6000 AG measures your onsite farm conditions and provides you with the exact data needed to make the right decision at the right time saving you time, resources, and unnecessary expenses.
The leaf wetness sensor determines the amount of time a leaf's surface is wet and dry. Perfect for vineyards and orchards, this sensor is key in managing irrigation and protecting plants from fungal diseases early on.
The solar irradiance sensor helps optimize plant growth and crop placement strategy.
Soil Moisture and Temperature Sensor:
Choose to add on a soil moisture and temperature sensor and access hyper-local soil measurements at three separate depths.
