Monitoring of weather data, soil moisture and temperature as well as the recording of the small-scale variability of air humidity and air temperature within the trees of a fruit orchard experimental plant (Bavarian State Institute for Viticulture and Horticulture, LWG).

Sensor network consisting of a central weather station with six soil moisture sensors and eight wireless mini loggers for soil and climate parameters.

Data transmission of the eight mini loggers via radio transmission to a central enviLog datalogger as main logger (up to 48 mini loggers are possible). Automated data transfer from the main logger to a database server and from there to the user PC.

The devices were delivered by ecoTech and installed in October 2018 together with employees of LWG Veitshöchheim.
