iMetos AG is our internet based monitoring device for disease prediction and evapotranspiration monitoring.

Real time data via internet for:

Irrigation management

Disease forecasting

Frost warning

Planning and logistics

Local micro climate monitoring

All relevant agriculture weather data are measured permanently by iMETOS®ag and sent to the internet climate data base. The iMETOS® ag station is powered by rechargeable batteries and a solar panel. No need to change or externally charge batteries. iMETOS® ag only needs a valid GPRS contract with sufficient good GSM coverage in the area, approximately 10 MB data services per month and a deactivated SIM lock to be operational. iMETOS® ag reports its data to the internet climate data base of Pessl lnstruments GmbH at http://www.fieldclimate.com. Your internet browser and log in password to the site http://www. fieldclimate.com provides online data, reports and graphs observed in your own orchards or fields. On this site there is also an area reserved where you can input and change the thresholds (based on phenological progress) and telephone numbers (person on duty) to be used in frost warning and/or stress warning for evaporative cooling.

iMETOS ag is available with the following sensors and options:

This model is specifically designed for all potato growers interested in having Smith Periods calculated for their fields, for all interested in growing degree days, and temperature based pest models. The temperature measured in your fields allows you to calculate degree day accumulations more accurately. An important feature is also the temperature during sunrise and sunset ñ available in real time on your finger tips by logging in at: http://www. fieldclimate.com
For sites with low to moderate wind speeds, this model offers a cost effective solution to estimate the daily evapotranspiration rates on http://www. fieldclimate.com
This model is the preferred choice to be used for our disease forecasting models available on http://www. fieldclimate. com
For areas with low to moderate wind speeds, this model works with most of our disease models and is a cost effective choice get a good estimate of daily evapotranspiration rates on http://www. fieldclimate.com
These sensors allow the most accurate calculation of site specific evapotranspiration rates and run most of our disease models via log in to: http://www. fieldclimate.com

Optional Sensors:

Soil temperature:All corn growers know about the importance of soil temperature for the early development of corn seedlings. Soil temperature reporting gives a better understanding of best seeding dates for susceptible corn varieties. This sensor helps you to estimate nitrogen-mineralization. Soil temperature is needed to calculate the disease models available for turf on http://www.metos.at/fieldclimate

Wet bulb temperature:For frost warning and evaporative cooling by SMS.

Wind direction and barometric pressure sensorsrecommended for all customers requiring reports on these sensors data on http://www. fieldclimate.com

View your field climate data in tables and graphs. Download these data into excel and access sheets or other spread sheets and data base programs. See your own daily evapotranspiration and calculate crop specific soil water balances in real time. Calculate your own field degree day model as well as sunrise and sunset for pest prediction in real time. Calculate growing degree days for corn seed production.
