Foil Greenhouse

Fruits, vegetables, herbs and ornamental plants are often cultivated in foil tunnels. Since there is no natural precipitation within the tunnel irrigation is required. Optimal irrigation is always controlled by continuous measurement of soil moisture. Also, temperature is an important parameter for the growth of plants and is measured. Heating systems are often turned at the beginning of the season to promote plant growth.

A cost-effective, robust and reliable soil moisture and temperature sensor is the SMT100 of TRUEBNER. Even harsh environment cannot harm the sensor. For many years, it can be used to achieve optimum harvest results
