SoilIoT: Soil Moisture Supervision


Soil Moisture Sensors measure volumetric water content of the soil. They are all wireless and use the LoRaWAN network to get your data out of your fields and into your hands.
Know what’s happening in your fields, identify trends and understand readings for optimization over time.

Measure at different soil depths or single depth.

Challenge or problem: Agriculture and horticulture count for 70% of the use of freshwater, water management is key. Wireless sensors are used for irrigation optimization whether automated or manual, for monitoring water infiltration in soil moisture profiles and dynamic plant interactions, and for monitoring the soil condition in general. Under-irrigation (draught) is a well-known issue. One of the biggest drought-related issues is if the soil becomes hydrophobic – it becomes so dry, that it cannot absorb and retain water anymore. A lesser-known but equally relevant for freshwater use is over-irrigation. Besides wasting resources, over-irrigation leads to nutrients and pesticides losses out, depleting the soil and eventually threatening freshwater supplies from chemical pollution.
Solution: Smart irrigation for city landscaping Integrating real-time soil moisture readings to help cities conserve water while reducing costs. SoilIoT is an affordable, wireless IoT based and remote system that offers farmers real-time insight into the soil moisture condition of their crops.
Result: As wireless sensor technology continues to evolve, it’s unlikely one measurement will be able to answer all the questions a farmer may have. The power comes from combining information in new ways. The multiple possibilities of data integration allow growers to divide the field into technology layers, as well as work within different scales, from on-spot control of individual plants to controlling several remote fields at once, via mobile app. To achieve that, connectivity is key.
