Many high-value crops are sensitive to micro-climate variations such as temperature, rainfall, and soil moisture, which directly affect quality and profitability. Meanwhile, water and pesticides, which represent significant costs, are under greater scrutiny as governments and consumers place a higher priority on sustainability. Onset, a world leader in data loggers and weather stations, today announced that it is helping growers and researchers address these issues with the launch of the HOBOnet™ Field Monitoring System. Now, whether managing fields and greenhouses or conducting studies on agriculture, climate, or ecology, HOBOnet makes it simpler and more affordable than ever to collect the data that drives insights and decisions.

The scalable, cost-effective HOBOnet Field Monitoring System includes everything needed to capture near real-time outdoor or greenhouse data. Based on the field-proven HOBO® RX3000 Remote Monitoring Station and powerful cloud-based HOBOlink™ software for remote system management, HOBOnet features a suite of new wireless sensors covering a range of outdoor measurements. The system connects the RX3000 and up to 50 wireless sensors in a mesh network in order to measure large areas once considered too costly or impractical to monitor. The HOBOnet Field Monitoring System provides access to data via any web browser, whether on a desktop, laptop, or mobile device, so growers and researchers can get timely information whenever and wherever they need it.
