Why FloraPulse is right for your crop!
Wine & table grapes
To get the best wines, water timing and quantity is critical. It's well known that vine water status affects wine quality - you want to keep the vines water-stressed just the right amount to bring out the desired aromas and body, without shutting down photosynthesis or unduly decreasing yield.
The pressure chamber gives accurate readings, but the logistics of sending technicians and tabulating data are a pain. And you only get one datapoint a week. It's not reliable.
Soil moisture sensors only tell you half the story. You are making critical decisions based off incomplete data.
The FloraPulse microtensiometer gives you direct measurements of vine water potential, every-single-day. Easily keep your vines at the desired water-stress level and tune your irrigation to get high quality grapes, consistently year-after-year. Never again guess if you irrigated too early or too late.

Well irrigated trees produce more crop, but irrigate too little or too much and the problems begin. Irrigate too little, and trees become weak, yields decrease, and pathogen risk increases. Irrigate too much, and trees become susceptible to fungi and oxygen depletion at the root level.
Researchers recommend pressure chamber readings to determine irrigation, but you may skip this because the logistics of this instrument are painful. It's no fun going to the field, middle of the day, to take measurements during the hottest time, then tabulating and interpreting them.
