LoRa Technology: Improving Nature Restoration and Eliminating Agriculture Water Waste Around the Globe
Low-cost, wireless solution provides efficient use of water resources
Only 3% of the world's water is accessible freshwater. Of that, 70% of the freshwater consumed is used in the agricultural industry - the largest consumer of water globally. Monitoring soil moisture levels helps farmers to make effective and smart irrigation decisions. Too much water in the soil leads to waterlogged areas and a potential for plant illness or death, while too little water will harm crop growth.
Sensoterra is a low-cost, wireless and remote system that offers farmers real-time insight into the soil moisture condition of their crops. With plug and play probes that can be deployed across a large field and in more areas, the data becomes more valuable and results in smarter irrigation decisions.
