Stevens Agricultural Monitoring (SAM) System
Improve crop quality and yield using Stevens Agricultural Monitoring (SAM) System. Combining a weather system with monitoring multiple soil variables, the SAM System delivers complete and quality data in a cost-effective package that enhances the user’s knowledge to make informed crop management decisions.
What makes the SAM System unique in comparison to other systems is the direct measurement of soil characteristics by incorporating the power and reliability of Stevens’ Hydra Probe sensor. The result is complete data collection and analysis of all possible variables that impact soil conditions.
Used in many applications, universities and government agencies (such as the USDA, NOAA and NASA), the Hydra Probe has been extensively researched and designed as a durable sensor that provides consistent and quality data year-after-year. Collecting valuable data from the impact that weather, irrigation and fertilization have on the root zone of your crop, the SAM System can help the user understand and manage:
Data collected by the SAM System in the field is transmitted to the user’s base station PC for convenient analysis of variables and conditions influencing the crop. Data is displayed in graphs and charts or can be customized to meet the user’s unique requirements.In addition to providing enhanced information on soil characteristics, the SAM System can also provides ET management procedures by crop type based on your local published irrigation guides.
