Delta-T Devices Ltd (Delta-T), a leading manufacturer of soil moisture sensors and data loggers, has partnered with Netafim UK Ltd - to provide a complete precision irrigation package (with cloud data management) for commercial growers in the UK.
The package will be supplied by Netafim UK, the market leading provider of irrigation solutions in the country, through its main dealer network. It can automatically control irrigation and monitor growing conditions. It will include Delta-T's SM150T Soil Moisture and Temperature Sensor alongside their advanced GP2 Data Logger and Controller. Data can be remotely monitored and shared on mobile or desktop devices via Delta T's free online DeltaLINK-Cloud service.
Delta-T's Dr John Newstead said, "This partnership provides a great opportunity for two established companies with complementary skill-sets to deliver a valuable product to the commercial grower sector. The benefits of precision irrigation should not be underestimated - it can help growers produce higher quality produce with improved taste and shelf life, as well as reducing water and fertilizer use and lessening salt build-up. Netafim and Delta-T make a great team, providing expert installation and support to growers who want to benefit from cutting edge technology".
Netafim's "Julian Gruzelier says, “Netafim UK is pleased to be able to enter into partnership with leading and innovative technical providers of specialized products and services. We are the global leader in our industry and are continually looking at ways in which to develop irrigation efficiency with all the benefits this brings the grower and consumer. Delta-T’s extremely high level of technical expertise in soil moisture sensing and data logging means our collaboration with them is very much in line with this fundamental Netafim ethos. We look forward to working with them to advance irrigation management across Britain”.
