Asparagus Cultivation

Asparagus grows particularly well at temperatures of about 18 to 22 degrees Celsius. Therefore farmers cover the soil with foils of tow different colors in order to adjust the temperature. The black side is turned outwards when heating by the sun is desired. The white side is turned outwards to protect against too much sun.

If the temperature profile in the soil is measured with multiple  SMT100 TRUEBNER sensors, this information can help the farmer to turn the foil at the right time. If the sensors are combined with a wireless data logger, then the measurement data can be transferred to the Internet. The farmer saves thereby many unnecessary trips to the asparagus sites. Through optimized growth and minimized costs profit of the farmer will increase.
