Harvest Tips

Tip #5 - Download Data

You can download data from your Harvest system in text or CSV format. Here's how:

Head to your Harvest webpage and under the "Options" menu at the top of the page click "Download Data".

Tip 5

Choose the format, start date and the duration or end date for the period of data you would like to download. The "Split Date/Time" tickbox gives you an option to split the date and time data into two seperate fields.

Tip 1

Use the "Custom Fields" to customise the data you would like to download.

Logs: If selecting monthly, daily, or hourly logs - options for the minimum, average, maximum or total values for each parameter will appear. You must select at least one of these values.

Tip 1

Summary: Use these tick boxes to include easy-to-read summaries for the parameters selected in the next step.

Tip 1

Columns: Use these tick boxes to specify the parameters you want to download. Each parameter will have it's own column. The default is set to all parameters.

Tip 1

Once you have selected your desired options, click the "Download Data" button at the top of the page and your data should begin to download after a few moments.

If you have any issues or questions regarding the downloading of data, please contact our Tech Support team on +64 370 1991 or 0800 HARVEST.

Tip #4 - Localised Forecast

For any Harvest system with functioning weather sensors, as an add-on service we can push weather data to Weather Underground who then provide a localised forecast based on those readings and their expanding network of personal weather stations. You can read more about how they do this here - Weather Underground Website.

Tip 4

To add a localised forecast to your Harvest system, contact our sales team via sales@harvest.com or +64 370 1991 (freephone 0800 HARVEST).

Tip #3 - Wet Bulb Temperature

We can calculate and display wet bulb temperature for any systems with temperature and humidity sensors. Simply ask our Tech Support team to set this up for you. Wet bulb temperature is very useful if you use water for frost protection. When you first start to apply water, the leaf temperature rapidly drops to the wet bulb temperature, so you must be sure that the water is turned on before the wet bulb temperature gets to zero.

Tip 2

To set up your Harvest system to calculate wet bulb temperature, contact our Tech Support team via support@harvest.com or +64 370 1991 (freephone 0800 HARVEST).

For more information on our Harvest system calculations please visit our system calculations page.

Tip #2 - Growing Degree Days & Richardson Chill Units

Any Harvest system with at least one air temperature sensor can calculate Growing Degree Days (GDD) and Richardson Chill Units (RCU). The GDD and RCU values are displayed alongside the related sensors' graph (see below) for the time period you are viewing, apart from the current day in progress.

Tip 2

To view or change your growing season for GDD/RCU calculations, go to "Login and Settings" in the Options menu of your Harvest Webpage. Then scroll down to "Seasons" and use the drop down menu to change the growing season, then click "Save All Options".

Tip 2

To set up your Harvest system to show GDD and RCU, contact our Tech Support team via support@harvest.com or +64 370 1991 (freephone 0800 HARVEST).

For more information on our Harvest system calculations please visit our system calculations page.

Tip #1 - Remote Control

The Harvest ITU G2 systems can be used for remote control of equipment from a computer or smartphone, e.g. to turn on/off an irrigation pump - see the screenshot below. This is an internet based control system with immediate on screen acknowledgment, rather than a text message which you cannot be sure if or when it has been received.

Tip 1

To find out more about remote control on your property, contact our sales team via sales@harvest.com or +64 370 1991 (freephone 0800 HARVEST).
