The KestrelMet 6000 Food Plot Weather Station is built on a commercial-grade platform and includes a fan-aspirated temperature and RH sensor.
The soil sensor array measures soil moisture and temperature conditions at three depths, providing reliable profile data that corresponds to the entire root zone, allowing the grower to optimize irrigation strategies.
Solar irradiance sensors provide precise crop and environmental information to ensure the most effective integrated pest management program.
GROW AND MAINTAIN A THRIVING FOOD PLOT
We believe in simple, comprehensive weather monitoring solutions that are affordable, easy to deploy, and require minimal decision-making. The KestrelMet 6000 is the most cost-effective and easy-to-use professional-grade weather station available.
The KestrelMet 6000 is a rugged, cost-effective one-time investment that will help you grow and maintain a thriving food plot for years of successful hunting. Cellular data transmission enables you to deploy the station in remote areas and view that data from the KestrelMet cloud within minutes. With the online dashboard and app, you can conveniently access your food plot weather data on a mobile device — whenever you want and wherever you are.

The solar irradiance sensor helps optimize plant growth and crop placement strategy.
Soil Moisture and Temperature Sensor:
KestrelMet has taken the gold standard for soil moisture measurement and added temperature sensors that maximize the accuracy of the Watermark soil moisture readings. The included soil sensor array consists of 3 probes, each on a 15’ cable. Each probe measures soil water tension using a Watermark sensor and soil temperature less than an inch above the Watermark sensor. Probes are typically buried at 3 different depths corresponding to the root zone of the target vegetation. The soil temperature probes are also used to help you plan the best date to seed the food plot.
The solar irradiance sensor provides accurate measurements of sunlight intensity which is critical in matching the food plot crop to the target location. Depending on your plot’s location and access to resources, it can be impractical to irrigate regularly– the KestrelMet weather station provides the actual onsite conditions of your plot so you irrigate only when necessary and with the least amount of water required.
The KestrelMet 6000 is an all-in-one, self-powered cellular weather station that integrates easily into data-driven technology using a cloud-based API.
Our API offers integration, personalization, and automation advantages.
