Tule Technologies reports its new system for water use monitoring provides “Actual ET” data on the amount of water that is vaporized and transpired from a field or vineyard rather than Reference ET from a nearby location such as a California Irrigation Management Information System, CIMIS, data station. One Tule sensor measures evapotranspiration over a 1 to 10 acre area and reports data back to the Tule dashboard. Weekly reports include a forecast of the atmospheric demand for the upcoming week. “We can remotely tell grape growers whether their vineyard has the right amount of water stress for their production goals, and recommend how much water to apply,” said Tule co-founder and CEO Tom Shapland. tuletechnologies.com
