Soil Moisture for accurate irrigation
We have various different probes to choose from. Depending on your requirements there are a variety of products from three different producers with various lengths, ranging from 200mm to 1800mm, at various price levels to choose from. The physical constitution of your farm also influences which telemetry units you will chose to use. The telemetry unit is the modem that pushes all the data into the cloud and is automatically stored in your database.
The here estimated capital investment and annual subscriptions are based on a typical installation with 10 soil moisture probes of 800mm length and one GPRS modem. Pending your choice of length telemetry units and amounts these prices vary drastically. The annual subscription depends on how many GPRS modems you install.

Dedicated weather station
The here estimated capital investment and annual subscriptions are based on a typical installation. Pending what the ultimate choice of sensors and combinations are, the final costs can drastically deviate from the here quoted estimates.
This weather station includes: Anemometer, barometer, raingauge, temperature, humidity, logger, solar radiation, rediation bracket, GPRS modem, weather box, solar panel, voltage regulator, backup battery, panel mast, tripod mast, voltage monitor.
This wireless HUB can collect data from up to 4 additional sensor stations and pushes all the data into the cloud and is automatically stored in your database.

Farm level weather & storm prediction
These monthly subscriptions include a weather station, plus the maintenance of the weather station. This subscription is related to Weather Africa and uses the station’s data to do a detailed modelled weather forecast specifically for your farm on weather, storm, lightning, frost and more. It uses the most accurate prediction model available (the same that YR.NO uses) and is the best possible combination to achieve accuracy in form of weather forecast.
This system pushes all the data into the cloud, is automatically stored in your database and processes data on a 10 minute basis and warns you on lightning and/or approaching/nearby storms with a one hour’s notice. Visualizations of the lightning and storms, plus their direction is through ‘GIS maps’ and can be viewed in 2 additional layers on your GIS widgets of you MySmartFarm dashboards.

Total field size
Total field size is the sum of all your fields you wish to subscribe to. It does not equal your total farm size, as total field size is derived from adding up all your fields, or blocks, and excludes roads and other unfarmed or uncultivated areas.
If you are not sure, you can use a best guess and add additional hectares any time later.
This calculator does not include potential savings from fertilizers, plant protection chemicals, diesel, maintenance and labour. Therefore additional savings could be achieved with accurate farm management and net benefits are likely to still be greater and return on investment faster, than here illustrated.
Currently this calculator is more accurate for fruit growers and in future will include more accurate calculations for a selection of cropping systems. Additionally your yields are likely to increase, which value’s are also not reflected in this calculator.
Every farm is different. The calculations assume, that you pay average South African farmer and foreman wages. Please note that these are estimates and in using this calculator you agree that you cannot hold us liable for the values produced by this calculator.
These figures only include annual subscriptions and are based on an average farm. Pending your preferred choice of hardware and setup, these values can deviate drastically.
These values are annual subscriptions and exclude capital investments of equipment. For more detail follow the links to the detailed product descriptions in pricing.
