Actual ET: Powering Simple, Actionable and More Accurate Irrigation Decisions
Tule provides site-specific irrigation recommendations based on your production goals, so you can efficiently make more accurate irrigation decisions about when and how much to irrigate.
Remotely monitoring crop water status daily allows you to anticipate production threats throughout the plant lifecycle before they affect your yield and quality.
Field-scale measurements and status alerts allow you to efficiently manage more acres and direct your attention and resources to where they’re needed most.
"Tule Technologies’ use of surface renewal is an exciting new application of a proven science. When applied to vineyards, it will tell you both the status of the vineyard and how much irrigation is required to meet your objectives. Also by monitoring vineyards 24/7, growers are able to trend conditions and forecast atmospheric demands..."
"Through its wire sensors, Tule quantifies how much water the plants actually use day to day by measuring the water they release as vapor. It has allowed Terlato to irrigate its vines with the amount they need when they need it, yielding higher-quality grapes and reducing water usage by 20% on those acres, [Terlato Wine Group Vice Chairman John Terlato] said. This year, Terlato is nearly tripling its Tule acreage..."
"San Francisco-based Tule received a 2016 World Ag Expo Top 10 New Product award for its FieldStat, which measures and monitors crops’ water stress and use. The readings from FieldStat are more comprehensive than pressure bomb readings..."
"Enter Tule, a new business formed with the strength of UC Davis research behind it. With a sensor and monitoring system installed above the crop canopy (and tapped into the irrigation line), the company can accurately tell growers how much water their plants are using and even when and how much to apply..."
FieldStat is Tule’s metric for the crop water status throughout an irrigation management zone.
Based on your field’s Actual ET, crop water status, and soil water holding capacity.
One sensor measures up to 10 acres - not just one point in the soil or just one plant.
Ensure you are on track to meet your target maximum canopy for each field.
Get peace of mind that your irrigation orders were adequately applied.
Supplement your expertise with insight into your neighbor’s performance.
