Water Balance

Observe measured vineyard water balance

eVineyard allows you to record rainfall and evapotranspiration for each of your vineyard blocks, and automatically calculate water balance for each block - so you can quickly identify how much water needs to be delivered to the vineyard to achieve a desired water balance.
Rainfall and Evapotranspiration can be recorded from Local Weather Authority (CIMIS supported), or any of the 20+ compatible Weather Station models.

Recommended daily irrigation time

Get recommended daily irrigation time

Every day, a new recommended irrigation time is calculated for each of your vineyard blocks by eVineyard. The recommended irrigation time is calculated based on your vineyard parameters, crop coefficient and evapotranspiration, as well as based on your irrigation system capacity. You can further fine-tune this calculation to help you decide for how long to irrigate.

Soil moisture level notifications

Be notified about over-irrigation and drought

Install the Vinduino Sensors in your vineyard and connect them to the Internet in a plug-and-play manner. You may run data analysis models, built to help you understand soil moisture, as well as create and receive SMS and e-mail alerts when certain layers of soil get too wet, or when certain layers of soil are too dry. You can configure your own wet and dry tresholds.

Valve Control

Remotely control and automate irrigation

Install the Vinduino Valve Control devices besides your electically controlled valves, and control up to 5 valves with each single Vinduino Valve Control device. The devices work Plug-and-Play with eVineyard. You can schedule when your irrigations should start and for how long they should run in each vineyard block – you even automate the irrigation time setting based on evapotranspiration.

Track and record water usage

Automatically track and record water usage

Every irrigation event, triggered with Vinduino Valve Control device, can be recorded - automatically creating a water usage graph for you. Data from the Vinduino Sensors can be charted on the same report, helping you build the reasoning for irrigation. With installed Vinduino Water Meter, you can also measure the water usage in different irrigation system sections, and detect leaks.

Plug-and-play connectivity with 20+ types of Weather Stations is available, if you want to use the weather data directly from your vineyard. If you already have an Internet-connected weather station, the chances are very good that it is compatible with eVineyard and that you can connect it to eVineyard with a few clicks.
You will always use the latest, most up-to-date version of eVineyard available. We do not charge extra for new updates, because all updates are already included in the subscription. Moreover, also the SMS alerts, on-line support, and non-stop on-line availability of the service is covered by the subscription. Absolutely no hidden costs!
The data from your sensors is stored for as long as you use eVineyard. Same goes for your vineyard calendar and all of the other data in eVineyard application. You don’t have worry about making back-ups, losing your phone or tablet, or a computer malfunction: we make sure that all your data in eVineyard is always available and archived, available for you whenever you need it.
eVineyard doesn’t require installation. Simply use your favourite Web Browser on any device. eVineyard is adapted to work just as well on a Smartphone as on your Computer, so there is no maintenance required. All you need is your username and password.

What users say about our package

Walt Hamera
"My name is Walt Hamera and I farm 6 acres in De Luz, California. I have 4 1/2acres of avocados, 1 acre of specialty coffee and 1/2 acre of winegrapes. Even though I had a soil moisture monitoring system in place, I was not satisfied with the data it was giving me or how that data was being used. In my search for a more efficient alternative I came across Vinduino."
Walt Hamera from De Luz, California
"After some research and conversations with fellow farmers, I decided to implement and install the system. The results exceeded my expectations. My monthly water bill was down 68%, and that wasn’t the only plus. Vinduino’s system is fully automated, uses LoRaWAN wireless communication, as opposed to line-of-sight, and adjusts the irrigation time according to ETc data from CIMIS and satellite."
Walt Hamera from De Luz, California
"Vinduino’s precision irrigation capabilities have appreciably reduced my water consumption, increased my productivity, and made my life, in general, a whole lot easier. I readily give them my most enthusiastic recommendation."
Walt Hamera from De Luz, California
