“GroGuru InSites delivers a simple, intuitive user interface to farmers and agronomic consultants that they can access on their computer, tablet or mobile device,” said Patrick Henry, President and CEO at GroGuru. “When coupled with the GroGuru WUGS [Wireless Underground System] solution, GroGuru InSites provides predictive, actionable, year-round strategic irrigation management decisions to maximize crop yield and quality, even in annual field crops, while optimizing input costs. In all instances, the power of the GroGuru InSites platform puts tremendous power at a farmer’s fingertips.”

Farmers and agronomic consultants agree about the value of GroGuru InSites:
“GroGuru InSites make moisture management fast, easy, and reliable,” said Grant Norwood, owner and operator of Norwood Farms. “The GroGuru InSites App allows me to see in real time field moisture and instantly advises me on actions needed. GroGuru InSites is as easy to understand as a traffic light using Green, Yellow, and Red to indicate available water to the crop. Water management decisions are quick and easy without the guess work using the GroGuru InSite app.”
“As an agronomic consultant, GroGuru InSites allows me to manage several farms remotely and gives me a very simple and scalable way to manage the recommendations to my farmer clients,” said Nich Kenny, P.E., Agricultural Engineer at NPK Ag. “When coupled with permanently installed soil moisture probes, like the GroGuru WUGS system, I can manage soil moisture information to support pre-water, pre-plant, and early crop decisions, manage all the way through harvest, and compare season-to-season water use within the field. Over the course of the last two seasons, the savings in installation costs make the permanent probe less expensive as well. Permanent probes are the preferred tool for soil moisture management, especially in broad acre row crops.”
