Features

Our remote soil sensor monitors a variety of variables that are critical for a healthy crop growth. One of the most critical variables that is monitored is the volumetric water content (VWC). Additional important variables are electric conductivity (EC), soil temperature and salt content. Utilizing up-to-date soil sensor information and custom alerts enables farmers to act immediately in case of irregularities. This will help farmers to avoid damages from overwatering and drainage such as root rot, fungus, and mildew.
