News and Tips

FAQ Page
Our new FAQ Page answers common questions about soil moisture and rainfall monitoring.


My Sites
We've released a new feature which allows logged in users to view a list of all sites they have specific access to. This is particularly useful for users with sites in different regions, as all their accessible sites will be grouped together by region on the new drop down menu.

N.B. This change will not affect your ability to view existing publicly accessibly sites, rather it gives you a list based off your read-only or admin access permissions.


IBM Weather Forecast
Harvest has partnered with IBM to bring improved forecasts to the system. You will notice some changes to the layout of the forecast, and hopefully improvements to the quality of the data. As always we are keen to hear feedback on this change.

If you are interested in having a localised forecast for your site, please contact our sales team.


Soil Moisture White Paper
Our Soil Moisture White Paper has recently had a major overhaul, you can access it here. The document provides all you need to know about soil moisture, sensors and practical use of soil moisture data.


Updated Acclima Soil Sensor Installation Videos
Updated instructional installation videos for our soil moisture sensors can be found on our Support Videos Page.


Dramatic Graph Speed Increase
We have introduced a new database on our cloud server, so zooming out to week view or longer is now much faster. Try the new “30 day” view, which is often more useful than month view.


Harvest Tip #6
With the right sensors, your Harvest weather station can calculate and display the risk of Botrytis cinerea and powdery mildew.
The Bacchus model for calculating Botrytis risk was developed in NZ by Dr Balasubramaniam (Bala).
