TreeSense FDR

Use volumetric soil moisture findings to document irrigation events

FDR use cases

Use simplicity and reliability

Thanks to the simple installation and maintenance, these sensors are ideal for a wide range of applications. The clear and intuitive display enables fast and reliable recording and interpretation without complicated conversions or specialist knowledge.

Automate documentation

The automated recording and logging of irrigation data enables users to efficiently monitor and manage schedules and water consumption. This is because a significant increase in moisture values clearly and immediately indicates that irrigation has taken place.

Quantifying the irrigation effect

Soil moisture monitoring shows you the influence of irrigation on the soil. The data allows you to compare the effects of different irrigation methods and identify the most effective method for specific conditions.

The TreeSense FDR offers precise tracking of soil moisture in percent. The simple handling and interpretation, robust design and low-maintenance technology are ideal for effective irrigation tracking.

FAQ about the FDR sensor
How does FDR differ from Watermark?

The FDR sensor measures the volumetric water content in the soil by frequency domain reflectometry, while the soil water tension sensor measures the tension of the water in the soil. The FDR provides direct data on the water content, while the voltage sensor indicates the water access of the plants.

How long do the soil moisture sensors last?

TreeSense soil moisture sensors are designed for longevity and will last for several years under normal conditions. Their durability depends on the environmental conditions and the intensity of use.

Why do I need soil moisture data when I use Pulse?

Soil moisture data can complement Pulse data by providing context on soil conditions. This helps to understand plant water requirements more accurately and to manage irrigation efficiently, especially in variable soil conditions.

How often do I have to service the sensor?

TreeSense sensors are designed for minimal maintenance. Most models only require occasional checks and battery changes. The battery should be replaced approximately every 2-3 years and annual relocation of the sensor is recommended to ensure valid data.
