Agriculture Solution UC17 includes:
This is all you need to accurately monitor soil moisture, soil temperature, relative humidity, air temperature, precipitation and to transmit sensor data to your portal or application.
Know your water consumption – ensure the optimal amount of water is used for your crops.
Water is the most precious resource on Earth. Life depends on it. Water used for irrigation is pumped from reserves of groundwater, rivers, and lakes. Of course, crops also receive water from precipitation. According to paper published by MIT, 69% of the world’s freshwater withdrawals are committed to agriculture. Monitoring water usage in Agriculture helps farmers not just optimize irrigation and avoid overusage but also to preserve this precious resource.
Soil Moisture and Temperature
Know your soil moisture and soil temperature – optimize your plant growth rate and protect your plant root system against sudden changes of soil temperature.
An increase in moisture content decreases the soil temperature differences between day-time and night-time, which provides protection to the plant root system against sharp and sudden changes of soil temperature. Solar energy absorption increases as the moisture content increases, which results in a higher heat storage capacity at higher moisture content. Plant growth rate and yield increase due to the modification of plant climate at higher moisture content.
Monitoring soil moisture and temperature, relative humidity, air temperature, and precipitation are critical factors that every farmer should consider. With all the pressure to get started planting, spraying, irrigating and increasing yields, it is important to take the time to ensure you are setting your crop up for success.
