Delivering Precise Soil Conditions for Efficient Crop and Turf Management


    • "Acclima resulted in the most robust and reliable system, with no practical reading variations when exposed to different combinations of temperatures and salinities."


      Abstract from the ASCE Library: Report by the University of Florida for the Journal of Irrigation and Drainage Engineering

    • "..."the high quality measurement capability of the sensor coupled with the unique design of installing the firmware within the probe head and low cost heralds a new generation of sensing technology that will advance water management and sensing capabilities."


      Report from Utah State University
    • "Sensors of this nature are particularly suited not only to developing water savings in turf grass management and irrigation scheduling ... but would provide greater accuracy in weather station monitoring of soil moisture..."


      Report from Utah State University

    • "...only the Acclima ACC captures and interprets a waveform to determine travel time as accurately as a conventional TDR system. The TDT sensors all have the electronics embedded in a plastic sensor head...."


      Report from Colorado State University
      and the USDA

    • "Only the Acclima SMS system appears to be operative under these conditions; meaning that it could fully automate an irrigation system, without need for human intervention for monthly or seasonally rescheduling of the irrigation cycles."


      Report from University of Florida
      and North Carolina State University

    • "Only the AC system appears to be suitable for this irrigation strategy (it applied 61% less water than 2-WORS) that could fully automate an irrigation system, without need for human intervention for seasonal adjustments of the irrigation cycles."


      Report from University of Florida
      and North Carolina State University

    • "Regarding the SMS brands, the AC system was the only one that consistently showed water savings in every frequency tested (87%, 75%,and 61%, for 1, 2, and 7 d/w, respectively),compared to the control 2-WORS."


      Report from University of Florida
      and North Carolina State University

    • "Waveforms acquired using the TDR-315 sensor over a wide range of media properties were similar to those from conventional TDR....the TDR-315 would be more suitable for measurement of soil water contents in saline or salt affected soils than is conventional TDR."
