If Grapes Could Talk | Verizon AgTech: Vineyard In Action: Hahn Family Wines
Hahn Family Wines, established in 1980, needed a solution to manage irrigation for its vineyards. This family-owned winery is home to 650 acres of estate vineyards with roots dating back to the 1790s when Spanish missionaries realized the rare soils in Monterey, California were ideal for grapevines. Verizon worked in tandem with Hahn to install its Internet of Things (IoT) AgTech sensors to help increase the precision and better understand the irrigation needs of each block of grapevines. These sensors measure temperature, humidity, solar radiation, rain fall and wind speed, which communicate or “talk” through a gateway to the Verizon AgTech platform. Verizon’s AgTech analytic engine produces actionable irrigation recommendations based on all the data collected in the field and crop modelling.
