Soil Scout massively optimizes irrigation Water & Energy usage by providing permanent buried wireless monitoring.

Understanding what's happening below the soil surface is critical for many industries. Current solutions for measuring environmental data are primarily based on wired technology, which is impractical or inefficient in many environments; or require expensive and labour-intensive manual sampling.

Soil Scout provides critical insight into data from deep below the surface – wirelessly. Our small buried "Scout" sensor transmits moisture, temperature and salinity in near real-time from up to 4 metres below the surface, for up to 20 years - maintenance free.

Enabling 365x24 insight & profiling allows our customers to reduce their irrigation water and energy use by up to 50%.

Multiple industry sectors are benefiting from the ability to easily and continuously monitor what is happening under the ground, including:


Gain insight at root level, regardless of time of year or weather conditions.

  • Save up to 50% or more of your irrigation water and power needs
  • Reduce the loss of expensive fertilisers caused by over-watering
  • Decrease irrigation equipment maintenance costs





Having accurate and real time information about your turf enables better and more timely turf management decisions, and thus your course will be in better condition.

Give your players the great playing experience they deserve on optimal and uniform turf.
