Our history


PESSL Instruments was started in 1984 and established as a family business and created the METOS® brand. This is the product of innovative, dedicated and precise work. The purpose of Metos products is to help you make smarter and healthier decisions, especially in the fields of agriculture and the environment. By minimising the problems of product loss, time and quality.

METOS is present in more than 80 countries, with more than 25 subsidiaries around the world, being METOS IBERIA the one in charge of the deployment in Spain.

Pessl Instruments/METOS is a global pioneer in developing technological products and helping farmers and technicians to better manage their farms. Achieving an optimisation of resources and maximising the profitability of the farm.

A complete range of solar-powered wireless monitoring systems under the METOS® brand and a FieldClimate online platform are applicable in all climate zones and can be used in various industries and for various purposes, from agriculture to research, hydrology, meteorology and more. METOS monitoring systems collect, store, process and transfer data directly to a cloud platform (www.fieldclimate.com). METOS monitoring systems solve both tasks: reliable data collection and, what is more important nowadays, direct communication of data for real-time decision making. METOS provides a dashboard for decision making to enable its users to turn information into better yields. Over the years, METOS has become a global brand with local support, and we are proud to say that we reach almost every corner of the world. We believe that durable, highly accurate technology and the support of our trained partners around the world are the recipe for success. The METOS® brand lasts longer, works better, is easier to use and gets you there at the lowest cost.

Agriculture has changed dramatically over the last two decades. And rapidly developing technology will continue to have a tremendous effect on agriculture in the years to come. IoT in agriculture is gaining importance as it helps to monitor multiple assets at once.

Nested approach for IoT Agriculture

The nested or holistic approach means connecting many different equipment/solutions that are strategically placed in your fields. Pessl Instruments connects all the dots, makes it easier to control your farm, so you don’t have to worry about one aspect being overlooked. This way, you avoid unnecessary trips to the field, know exactly what the conditions are at any given time, make timely decisions about irrigation, fertilisation, pesticide application, harvesting and more 24 hours a day, 7 days a week all year round.

For the nested approach to work, you need multiple devices to monitor multiple issues in your field and around your farm; having a single weather station cannot provide enough data to respond to everything your crops need.
