In an era where sustainable resource management is paramount, freshwater is still one of our most undervalued and extensively exploited resources.

Sensoterra’s Water Management Revolution

At Sensoterra, we go beyond sensors; we’re on a mission to drive impactful change. Our philosophy is rooted in making sense of water, providing trusted, precision soil moisture data that transforms water management decisions.

Our unique approach lies in delivering precision soil moisture data, that’s calibrated by soil type — setting saturation points, wilting points, and permanent wilting points. We don’t prescribe water management; we empower it. Our sensors adapt to your needs, applicable across diverse scenarios, from agriculture, to smart cities, and water governance.

The “High Cost of Cheap Water” report seeks to combat this water blindness by emphasizing the need to recognize and value the multitude of benefits offered by healthy freshwater ecosystems. These benefits are wide-ranging and include the assurance of food and water security, the capacity to adapt to a changing climate, the preservation of biodiversity, and the profound cultural and spiritual significance to communities across the globe.

Quantifying the Value of Water

While direct use benefits tally up to a minimum of US$7.5 trillion annually for households, agriculture, and industries. The indirect benefits of freshwater ecosystems that are the unsung heroes. These ecosystem benefits, such as water purification, sediment delivery, and bolstering climate resilience, are chronically undervalued, generating an estimated US$50 trillion annually.

Water Management & Conservation

Freshwater is not merely a resource to be extracted but an intrinsic part of nature. Sustainable water infrastructure brings front the recognition of rivers, lakes, wetlands, and aquifers as dynamic, life-sustaining systems. It’s our responsibility to attribute real value, in the way that we manage water and freshwater ecosystems.

Sensoterra: Revolutionizing Water Management

As the world faces challenges such as rising water and fuel prices, increasing demand for food, and more frequent droughts, land manager are seeking innovative ways to optimize their operations. Preserving water and other resources has become a priority, and efficient water management is crucial for achieving higher yields. One of the key steps in this process is accurate soil moisture measurement.

The Importance of Measuring Soil Moisture

To effectively manage water resources and make informed decisions, land managers need reliable soil moisture data. Traditionally, monitoring systems have been expensive, complex to install, and difficult to integrate with other solutions. However, the emergence of smart, wireless IoT sensors is changing the game. These sensors offer significant advantages, making it easier and more affordable to monitor soil moisture levels in orchards and fields.
