Semtech, Sensoterra, and Senet have collaborated on an IoT solution that offers commercial farmers both scale and operational visibility. Semtech’s wireless solutions for real-time soil moisture measurement for commercial farms leverages Semtech’s LoRa devices and wireless radio frequency technology (LoRa Technology) and Senet’s LoRaWAN-based network into its smart agriculture systems to reduce up to 30% of water usage in commercial farms.
Sensoterra is a low-cost, wireless and remote system that offers farmers real-time insight into the soil moisture condition of their crops. Soil is not homogenous, it holds moisture differently in various areas. The company utilizes LoRa-enabled sensors in its probes and a LoRaWAN infrastructure provided by Senet. Sensoterra primarily focuses on the North American and European agriculture markets and has deployed over 4,000 sensors and achieved 720,000 data points to date. Sensoterra’s solutions are now being deployed in Australia, South America and other parts of the world.
