Lavender Cultivation

The Provence in France is one of the main areas for growing lavender. In large-scale monocultures different varieties are grown for the perfume industry and as a drug. Lots of sun and an optimized irrigation is beneficial for the growth and the quality of the harvest. Strong and healthy plants are also less susceptible to pest infestation.

The robust and reliable soil moisture sensor SMT100 can be repositioned each season several times and delivers accurate measurement results for an optimized irrigation scheme.
