Sensoterra is happy to announce a research partnership with the University of California Davis.
Sensoterra is happy to announce a research partnership with the University of California Davis. The two experts in the field of agriculture and soil sciences got together to combine laboratory and fieldwork research, placing sensors in the ground to test multiple soil types and soil moisture measurements.
The University of California Davis is one of the biggest institutes worldwide working on soil sciences and agricultural development. One of their recent projects is "SoilWeb": an app that puts together soil survey areas using an interactive Google map tool. Users can view detailed information about soil types, map units, and their components. The app is compatible with desktop computers, tablets, and smartphones. SoilWeb is one of the numerous projects taking place at the University and puts together a large amount of data on soil.
Sensoterra sensors are specialized in remote soil moisture monitoring for agriculture, horticulture, Smart City solutions, and landscaping activities. A wireless, low-cost, easy-to-install sensor, designed for all types of crops and soils, structured to provide the best balance between water and soil. With achieving optimum soil moisture conditions, yield increase can be reached as well as water-saving by 10-30%.
"Sensoterra is excited with this collaboration. The knowledge exchange between academia and industry is a win-win situation for both sides. Sensoterra always wants to bring up-to-date information to better assist our customers", says Jon Wisler (Sensoterra CEO).
Founded in 2014, Sensoterra provides data-driven solutions for optimizing land and freshwater resources for agriculture, horticulture, landscaping and nature restoration.
