Improving Water Quality for Traditional Agriculture

Traditional agriculture requires a water quality solution to stay resilient in challenging times. With KETOS, farmers are leveraging automated water quality testing for healthier crops and less stress on surrounding water resources.

Ensure Ground and Surface Water Quality



Automated Process Controls



Optimize Product Quality & Yield



Digital Water Technology Meets Traditional Agriculture Best Practices

Chemical Management

Balance your chemicals accurately and when needed to ensure water quality and protect pre-existing infrastructure.

Water Conservation

Farming communities are growing more water conscious—better track water usage to help predict future needs.

Lab-Accurate, Real-Time Results

Our results are delivered in real-time and are lab-accurate, allowing you to react in real time to water insights.

Modular Capabilities

Place KETOS devices exactly where you need them to monitor influent, effluent, wells, groundwater, and more across a vast geographical area.

Threshold Alerts

Set your parameter threshold alerts so that if any environmental changes happen, you can address the issue and maintain water consistency on the fly.

Monitoring of 30+ Parameters

KETOS monitors for nutrients, environmental factors, heavy metals (lead, arsenic, etc.), and inorganics.

Ensuring Product Quality Consistency with KETOS

California’s Central Valley is home to a wide variety of growers with differing water needs. Learn how one vineyard used KETOS to monitor the water for their grapes, almonds, and other crops to protect against excess fertilization, conserve surface water, and ensure the safe delivery of clear water back into the local aquifer.

Why Traditional Agriculture Chooses KETOS

Data-Driven Product Quality

  • Understand usage to find areas to improve product output
  • Balance accurately and use fewer chemicals when treating crops
  • Adjust to the needs of plants in real-time
  • Protect equipment and increase infrastructure longevity/chemical delivery

Why Automation is Essential for Ensuring Water Quality for Traditional Agriculture

Water is a critical resource for traditional agriculture. It’s a necessary component for growing the crops and produce we enjoy throughout the year and is necessary for irrigation, fertilizer applications, and livestock maintenance. 

According to the United States Geographical Survey, agriculture accounts for 65% of the world’s freshwater withdrawals. However, as water resources become stressed, precipitation patterns change, and droughts become more severe (due to climate change), farmers are looking for better ways to manage water supplies. By seeking out efficiencies, farming operations can better ensure water resources are efficient to protect business practices, the environment, and neighboring communities. Automation is making this responsibility easier and more affordable.

With automation, farmers in traditional agriculture can:

  • Find inefficiencies in water usage and find ways to conserve water better
  • Effectively balance chemical compositions to protect crops against over-fertilization
  • Quickly find leaks and infrastructure issues for faster resolution and less water waste
  • Protect the environment against contamination caused by run-off

Automation also removes the need for manual sampling, saving hundreds of man-hours yearly. This helps farmers decrease costs while benefitting from the added visibility real-time testing provides. 

The best part: as a modular system, KETOS can be placed strategically throughout a farm’s water infrastructure to test at various locations across a wide geographic area. With KETOS, farmers can test influent, effluent, wells, waterways, irrigation channels, and more from anywhere, all in one go.
