Soil moisture, EC, soil temperature. Get data on what's going on at the root level immediately rather than estimating at the leaf level.
Just push it into the soil, it really is that simple. No need for the delay and cost of a professional installer, and trivial to move yourself later.
From your truck, office or home, see conditions in your fields. Know whether to alert your irrigator to change irrigation, to anticipate frost or simply that the sets are working.
Move them around to paint a picture of your field. Then set and forget. Use gStakes from year-to-year, field-to-field.
See the trends in plant uptake rate against irrigation events.
EC - fertilizer level
Know sunlight and degree days. Track air temps for to manage frost response.
gStakes work at any depth. Can work in any canopy. Hand insert or drill and place. Just add coax to pole-mount the included antenna for increased range.
No calibration. gStakes run 3+ years without a new battery. Alerts you when not functioning.
