More crop per water droplet
Making it easy and affordable to measure soil moisture and produce more food for less.
Our climate is changing; freshwater supplies are dwindling, and droughts, flash floods, and failed crops are more and more common. This makes our global food production unstable while our population continues to grow.
Agriculture consumes 70% of the world’s water supply to provide food for 7.5 billion people, yet agriculture is far behind when it comes to embracing digital solutions to solve problems of efficiency and quality in the production of food. Less than 1% of all farmers use sensors to understand their crops’ condition and needs. As a result, almost all farmers over-irrigate their crops by up to 60%, wasting money, precious water, and damaging healthy soils.
That’s why we designed the Sensoterra soil moisture measurement system. A low cost and user-friendly tool for farmers that will make the agriculture sector more sustainable and efficient. The Sensoterra multidepth probe will lower water use and increase yields in the agriculture sector, bringing agriculture professionals extensive insight into soil conditions.
The Sensoterra mission is to tackle water waste in agriculture and help farmers increase yield and decrease costs. In short; producing more food for less.
Our commitment to precision agriculture technology allows farmers to make informed decisions, optimize their irrigation systems, and embrace sustainable farming solutions. With Sensoterra, access to real-time soil moisture data enables precise water resource management.
Sensoterra, established in 2015, with its headquarters in Houten, The Netherlands, develops water management solutions for agriculture/horticulture, smart city management, and water governance. Sensoterra has over 12,000 sensors in the ground globally, and generates hundreds of thousands of data points for smart water management, daily. Learn more at www.sensoterra.com
