Monitor - Irrigate - Review - Evolve - Repeat


The field copilot is part of a complete package, combining accurate soil moisture and rainfall data with intuitive web based software (IrriMAX Live). Irrigation management decisions can be made from anywhere at any time.

The Sentek Drill and Drop probe utilises an undisturbed installation method, ensuring we monitor the exact same soil structure as the surrounding field and not an area that has been disturbed, which could infiltrate water differently and effect rooting. Combining this with an electronic rain gauge will allow you to track localised rainfall, check irrigation volumes and see how much water enters the soil vs application.

The field copilot is built on our copilot hub platform, allowing simple upgrades with the addition of new sensors or even automating irrigation. The station is self powered via a solar panel and transmits data to the web via the mobile phone network.

Data can be viewed with IrriMAX Live in a range of near real-time graphs, gauges, lists and maps. Satellite (NDVI) and local weather data forecasts can be included to aid decision making. Tools are available for quick decision making but also detailed analysis for when time allows.


The Field Copilot is the ideal unit for the following applications:

  • Irrigation scheduling
    • Vegetable crops
    • Salad crops
    • Herbs
    • Arable crops
    • Vineyards
    • Soil grown soft fruit
    • Topfruit
    • Turf
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Research
