“World Ag Expo showed us a complete bird-eyed view from the latest tendencies in the agricultural market. Especially because it took place in the U.S: the scenario for the biggest growers in the world. Great environment for networking, technology absorption, but also the chance to amplify Sensoterra’s clients and partnerships”
Jurriaan Ruys (CEO, Sensoterra)
“The good thing about World Ag was the interaction within participants: you could see from big Ag companies to students, in a very fresh and cooperative environment,” says Bas van der Velden, Sales Director at Sensoterra.

Murray described the benefits of using soil moisture sensors and Sensoterra probes:
