Innovative Mobile App Proves Useful to Growers for Irrigation Management
FRESNO, Calif., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- PureSense Environmental Inc. announced today that its Irrigation Manager™ Android application is now available through the Android Market.
The PureSense app allows growers to monitor their real-time field conditions and irrigation activity from their Android phones. Monitoring stations placed throughout growers' fields send data through the internet every fifteen minutes and the PureSense Android application allows the grower to access that information in the field. Using the "offline sync" feature, the data becomes available on the Android phone even when the grower enters an area without cellular signal.
Bryan Alessini, Ranch Manager with F&M Oberti Inc monitors 1500 acres of almond and olive crops with PureSense. Alessini was a beta tester for the Irrigation Manager Android app. Alessini found flexibility a key advantage of the new app.
"The new Android app has really given us added flexibility in monitoring not only our field moisture, but also the climate readings our PureSense systems deliver," said Alessini. "It has been a dependable app and makes it so I don't have to be near a computer."
PureSense has plans to release additional apps for various platforms in the coming months.
"We're striving to deliver high quality, real-time information to our growers in the most user-friendly manner possible," said Todd Rickets, Director of Product Management for PureSense. "The mobile tools we're bringing to market enable us to do just that and allow our growers to make more informed irrigation decisions."
The app is available through the Android Market and is only available to growers with a PureSense login. The app can be obtained from the handset by going to the Market app and searching for PureSense.
