Farmer experience

Our soil temperature sensors allow us to monitor the variation in temperature across the season and allow us better time our applications of nitrogen. By improving the efficiency of nitrogen use we can reduce wastage, minimise environmental losses and improve our bottom line

  • Ednie Farms

The vaccine fridge monitors are really good. At certain times of the year we can hold thousands of pounds worth of vaccines in our fridge and knowing it is being stored at a safe temperature gives us a peace of mind.

  • Incheoch Farm

We have three main sites across the farm and to monitor all these units involves a 40 mile round trip, so having the sensors in place will allow us to reduce the requirement to undertake 'just in case' checks and be alerted should there be an issue.

  • Inverdovat Farm

The lone worker system is very important to us given that we operate across three sites and it gives us peace of mind that our workers can raise an alarm when required and that we know when they've returned from work safely.
