the grape monitor

In 2017, the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries commissioned Edaphic Scientific to install a phyto-monitoring system on various varieties of grapevines.

Known as The Grape Monitor, the phyto-systems are measuring stem growth (dendrometers), sap flow, soil moisture, canopy temperature, and more parameters.

Data is uploaded to the internet via the Edaphic Scientific telemetry system. These data can be viewed at anytime.

For more information, visit The Grape Monitor.
