Soil Monitoring in Agriculture

How do you monitor soil in agriculture to increase efficiencies and reduce environmental impact?

Agriculture faces huge challenges to meet the growing human demand for food.

The worlds’ population is constantly growing, creating a huge challenge for the agriculture industry to meet the ever-increasing human demands for food. Issues such as rising climate change, weather conditions, water supply and environmental impact all add to the growing agricultural problems. Agriculture is increasingly needing to make farms smarter, turning to technology, innovation and IoT to help improve yields and productivity, reduce resource wastage and minimize environmental impact.

Accurate data helps create support systems for decision making

Accurate data helps create support systems for decision making.

The recent improvement in the accuracy and reliability of IoT sensor technology has aided the agriculture industry to integrate technology and continuous monitoring into existing farming practices. The real-time data helps create support systems for decision making to improve efficiencies. The data is collected by a variety of sensors that measure such variables as moisture content, water quality, fertiliser use, pesticides, temperature and soil compaction. Data is used to aid or make automated decisions, with the ultimate goal being higher productivity and yield quality, increasing sustainability and reducing environmental impact.
