Case Study Pivot Irrigation
Precision Irrigation with Sensoterra & MultiTech – A Pivot to IoT in the Potato Fields
Agriculture plays a vital role in feeding the world’s growing population. Generally, farmers face increasing pressure to optimize the use of limited resources, especially water, to meet this demand. Despite this, agriculture consumes a staggering 70% of the world’s water annually, amounting to over 2 quadrillion gallons, enough to cover the entire United States in 2 feet of water. Thus efficiently managing this precious resource has become paramount for farms of all sizes.
Benefits of the solution
By harnessing smart soil moisture data, farmers can:
- Optimize irrigation, reducing costly input waste.
- Prevent soil and groundwater pollution through targeted irrigation.
- Make real-time decisions based on accurate data, enhancing overall farm efficiency.
With the implementation of smart soil moisture data and IoT technology, precision irrigation is revolutionizing the agriculture industry. Sensoterra and MultiTech’s collaboration is leading the way in providing farmers with the tools they need to make informed decisions about water usage and cultivate more sustainable, productive, and resilient potato fields.
