Through ReelView, growers using Rivulis products, get access to an advanced set of crop monitoring tools from their mobile phone. 

The service is offered at no extra charge with every roll of Rivulis drip line and tape (terms and conditions apply). ReelView uses satellite imagery and advanced algorithms to enable growers to detect irrigation, fertiliser, disease, and other issues, even before they can be seen with the naked eye by looking out for changes in vegetation and plant wetness. These are represented by easy-to-use color-coded field maps. ReelView is powered by Manna Irrigation Intelligence, Rivulis’ precision agriculture service.

Richard Klapholz, CEO of Rivulis, said, “Rewarding our customers for choosing Rivulis drip line and tape with this advanced and unique technology is a very tangible example of our commitment to a more sustainable future for growers around the world through smart – and in this case – free service.”

By monitoring vegetation variations and abnormalities, growers can identify under irrigated areas in the field that warrant further investigation. By contrast, plant wetness variability shows different moisture levels in the plants themselves, not the soil. Irrigation problems often show up first through a lack of moisture in plants so that issues can be identified early. Plant wetness variability might also indicate over-irrigation of crops.

ReelView lets growers analyse the development of their crops throughout the season and up to three years of historic field data. It also provides hyper-local weather data specific to their fields.

ReelView is available in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Turkish, Romanian, and Russian, with more languages available soon. Presently, it is available in select countries.

By helping growers using Rivulis’ products better spot possible issues regarding irrigation and plant health, the free ReelView app is their crop’s eye in the sky.
