Smart Water Management for Farming and Cities in the Middle East: Scalable Data & Real-Time Insights with Sensoterra’s Smart IoT Systems
Scalable data & real-time insights with fully integrated smart IoT systems
Smart Farm Sensing, in collaboration with Sensoterra, revolutionizes water management in date palm plantations and smart landscaping irrigation across the Middle East. Laurens Bierens, Managing Director of Smart Farm Sensing, highlights Sensoterra’s crucial role in optimizing irrigation for both agricultural and city landscapes in Saudi Arabia and the Emirates.
“Sensoterra is an important player in the entire feedback loop for smart water management, and we are happy to have them on board as a data provider “

The challenge was to achieve scalable data collection. While satellite data shows promise, its adoption and reliability for on-the-ground decisions remain limited. Sensoterra’s real-time insights from sensors gain immediate user validation due to their simplicity, robust design, long lifetime, and easy installation.
By combining Sensoterra’s readings with weather stations, irrigation systems, and other sensors, a comprehensive approach to smart water management is achieved.
- Developed a single platform for integrated sensor data
- Automated irrigation control with smart moisture thresholds
- Significant water savings for city landscaping and agriculture
Getting started is effortless: setting up a LoRaWAN network, connecting sensors, and managing data with API integration. The technology boasts low entry barriers, including a modest investment, simple installation, and user-friendly adoption. More data leads to greater value, making a difference between a field-oriented probe and a scientific instrument.
“Sensoterra is a simple sensor, it’s data is reflected by the intuition of the user”
Smart Cities & Municipalities
Local municipalities closely manage public green space irrigation, often with manual monitoring. By integrating Sensoterra soil moisture data with automated irrigation valves, the frequency of site visits for manual valve and pump adjustments reduces. This translates to greener, more beautiful parks and public spaces, all while optimizing water usage.
