MONITOR & PREDICT THE WEATHER FOR INCREASED PROFITS
Solution: Weather Stations & Data Loggers
Our weather stations can predict your micro-climate in real-time by sensing moisture in the air, changes in temperature and wind speed amongst other indicators. This data helps you make informed decisions on what next steps need to be taken.
iMETOS systems have a long service life, with excellent performance and are easy to use. iMETOS systems offer the lowest total cost of ownership.
It doesn’t matter whether you need to pre-empt the frost temperature levels, the soil moisture content, flood warnings or the extreme dry spells to ensure the ground is fit to work, by using an iMETOS weather station you will make the right decision at the right time.
Monitoring accurate site-specific weather will ensure the crop is at its best.
We also offer a virtual weather station, whereby users can simply sign up in just a few minutes and they’re ready to go – No hardware required. It’s the perfect low-cost entry solution, ideal for farms, allotments and even personal gardens.
iMETOS weather stations help you get the best from our ever-changing skies.

MANAGE WATER EFFICIENTLY TO REDUCE COSTS
Solution: Water & Soil Sensors
Water is a fundamental resource and can be costly if not managed in the correct way. Measuring soil moisture levels is key. Typically, you need to have 25% soil moisture content, otherwise plant stress occurs. Too much moisture in the soil, conversely, fills the air pores, damaging plant health. Managing irrigation with the METOS water and soil sensors will give you a greater insight into protecting your water resource.
METOS USA offers a diverse range of hardware and software solutions from PESSL Instruments that monitor the soil moisture, temperature, salinity and presence of nutrients as well as the plant (dendrometry variations etc), and the atmosphere. They can manage irrigation systems for flow, water level, pressure, pH level and electrical conductivity of fertiliser. These solutions are a cost-effective tool for soil moisture and irrigation management.
- Accurately manage moisture levels
- Irrigate more efficiently
- Save water and reduce costs
- Reduce your carbon footprint
- Save time & resource
- Accurately time fertiliser, water and pesticide applications

FARM EQUIPMENT & MACHINERY OPTIMISATION
Solution: iMETOS® Object & Active Trackers
Irrespective of business size, keeping an eye on every piece of powered or non-powered kit, can be difficult. Tracking of machines gives peace of mind about where they are, but you will also be able to monitor tractors and harvesters in operation, their efficiency and utilisation, to ensure they are a worthwhile investment.
For non-powered equipment, iMETOS® Object Tracker is an automatic tracking system which can be used on assets that may be static, such as a bowser.
For prime movers, the iMETOS® Active Tracker monitors combines and tractors. This system locates units, monitor their usage, and record data/update settings.
- Improve machinery planning
- Optimise machinery operation
- Save money
- Improve harvest efficiency
