Common Questions:

Here are some answers to common questions. You can also browse our support documentation here.

How many Arable Marks do I need per acre? We don’t recommend a distribution based on acre. We recommend one Arable Mark per:

Management Zone:
This could be based on field, ranch, or irrigation scheme. Choose a resolution of distribution that can help you make decisions and act accordingly.
Crop or Varietal Type:
The Arable Mark measures canopy growth, health, stress, and more. These measurements will vary between crop type or varietal. While you could be growing apples and oranges in the same microclimate, they behave differently to the same environment, and that will show up in our plant-based measurements.
Microclimate / Hot Spot:
Choose a location that is representative of conditions or not!
Representative of crop conditions
More or less vigorous
Where frost occurs
Where disease outbreaks first occur
Number of microclimates x # of crops/varietals
6 x 2 = 12 Arable Marks
Or number of management zones

What maintenance is required?

Gently wipe off the dome of the Mark with a damp, soapy cloth, ensuring that there are no suds leftover. Dusty terrain or spray events may require more frequent cleaning.

What area does the Arable Mark measure?

The Arable Mark looks at a circular area below it, with a diameter that is twice its mounted height.

Does the Arable Mark measure soil moisture or wind speed?

No. Arable Bridge is available as an auxiliary connector that enables integration with other devices, such as flow meters, pressure gauges, soil moisture probes, and wind speed sensors.

Does the Arable Mark work in any crop type?

Yes. As long as the Mark can perch above the canopy, it can measure the vegetation below it.

Does the Arable Mark work in X location?

The Mark will transmit data in any location with at least two bars of cellular connectivity.

How often does the Arable Mark take measurements?

Every five minutes, the Mark records data measurements. These are aggregated every hour, and delivered to the customer on an hourly or daily basis, depending on the measurement taken.

How often does the Arable Mark sync?

Every hour.
