Reinke introduces Ranch Systems as a new ReinCloud Ready™ product partner. Through this new partnership, Reinke offers RS300™, a field-monitoring device focused on soil moisture, weather and water metering stations. The RS300 allows users to collect field data that can be accessed through ReinCloud.

“The partnership with Ranch Systems enables us to bring to market an advanced line of daily field management and monitoring equipment that can be used worldwide,” said Reinke Product Manager Cody Bailey. “This gives users the ability to access and use data regarding weather and soil moisture that is crucial to their operation, helping them to make informed decisions regarding their irrigation management.”

Data from the RS300 is sent to ReinCloud, where it can be displayed and accessed alongside data from mechanized irrigation systems. The data is collected, stored, and can be analyzed and presented through an easy-to-use dashboard. The RS300 is a cellular-based device that requires an appropriate cell signal.

“Knowing what the user wants to monitor is the most important part. From soil moisture to water metering to a complete weather station, we partnered with ReinCloud to provide data solutions that the grower needs,” said Ranch Systems President and Founder Jacob Christfort.

ReinCloud allows growers to manage and monitor their irrigation system, analyze soil moisture data, check the weather and more from a single mobile web application.
