Discover the savings hiding in your irrigating
We face an ever changing and more challenging climate, with hotter summers and less water now the new normal. For producers everywhere, the price and availability of water has become the driving force behind each seasons’ profitability.
All too familiar is that sinking feeling as full entitlements are not met and prices on the temporary market begin to surge in the face of failing spring and summer rains.
But what if you could save 3, 5 or even 10% off your water usage, how much would that help the bottom line?
At enviroeye we’re putting clever technology to work both on and off the farm, and making it simple and easy for you to conserve your water and reduce costs.

Saving water made easy
Irrigating really boils down to just when and how much or how long. Sounds simple enough, yet we all know it’s easier said than done.
Getting the right visibility you need to ensure just right amount of water goes out is key. We’ve developed a system, using lots of different sources of information (think sensors, weather data, satellite maps etc.), and distills them down to those bare bones: when and how much or how long.
We use just right number of sources to suit your goals and budget, you can add new sources at anytime (adding to your overall precision) and best of all, we can integrate your existing soil probes or weather station data as well. Not bad eh?
Get started today with your FREE customised dashboard
Start with your own evapotranspiration dashboard, delivering daily crop correted ET (ETc) values and access to a customised 7 day ETc forecast for your farm.
So how simple is it really ?
With you (or your friendly agronomist), we set irrigating “trigger” (i.e. start) and “target” (i.e. stop) points for each block.
They’ll be based on many different sources of data and can be adjusted as things unfold, depending on weather, crop development and your seasonal goals.
All you have to do is stay between the lines.
That’s it, because, well, its simple
So how do I get started?
There are 3 steps, but we can take things slowly, progressively adding each step when time is right. The best place to start is with evapotranspiration, which we customise for your farm.
Step 1 - EVAPOTRANSPIRATION
Using regular satellite imagery of your farm, in combination with one of our award winning weather stations, we deliver you a good idea of how much moisture is lost each day to evapotranspiration (ET).

Step 2 - SOIL
Understanding soil available moisture is critical. We offer a range of soil monitoring probes to match any budget.
Already have your own soil moisture probes; no worries, we can integrate their data into our application for you.
We will measure soil moisture (generally as Volumetric Water Content - %VWC) as well as soil temperature.
This will tell us when we’ve hit our trigger points. It also helps confirm how much needs replenishing, as well as when we’ve reach your desired target points for each block
Step 3 - PLANT STRESS
While soil moisture probes and evapotranspiration estimates provide vital information, at the end of the day, they are both approximations for exactly how much water stress your crop is under.
We have a range of sensors capable of directly measuring a plant’s water stress, and its something that sets us apart from other companies
Because when it comes to irrigating nothing beats basing your decisions on feedback directly from the plants themselves.
