Understanding KETOS SHIELD

The KETOS SHIELD is an advanced, award-winning water intelligence platform that utilizes cutting-edge technology to revolutionize water management for farmers. By seamlessly integrating IoT, data analytics, and real-time monitoring, the KETOS SHIELD empowers growers to make data-driven decisions, conserve water, and optimize their agricultural practices like never before.


KETOS’ proprietary technology helps growers manage their water quality via:


  1. Real-Time Water Monitoring: The KETOS SHIELD installs a network of intelligent sensors throughout the farm, continuously monitoring various water parameters, such as pH levels, temperature, dissolved oxygen, and nutrient concentrations.
  2. Data Analysis and Insights: The data collected by the sensors move securely to the cloud, where data is analyzed and valuable insights are presented to water operators to manage water quality and usage patterns.
  3. Intuitive Dashboard: Data is presented visually via an easy-to-access KETOS dashboard so users can understand their water resources, crop health, and potential issues that may affect production (without needing third-party lab analysis).
  4. Actionable Recommendations: Based on the analyzed data, KETOS SHIELD offers actionable recommendations, enabling farmers to optimize water usage, prevent wastage, and ensure their crops receive the precise amount of water and nutrients they need.
  5. Automated Alerts: The platform equips water operators with a customizable alert system that promptly notifies farmers of anomalies or deviations from optimal conditions, empowering them to take immediate corrective actions.
  6. Historical Data Access: KETOS SHIELD maintains a comprehensive historical database, allowing growers to track trends, compare performance, and make informed decisions for future crop cycles.

Benefits of KETOS SHIELD for Growers
