OneSense Agriculture UC16 – Irrigation and Soil Salinity Monitoring includes:

  • Water meter
  • 6-depths capacitance soil moisture probe
  • Volumetric Water Content (VWC) and Electrical Conductivity (EC) sensor 
  • battery-powered wireless data transmitter (no solar panel needed)
  • GPS
  • 1-year connectivity license
  • 1-year CIS (cloud integration services) subscription

This is all you need to accurately monitor water consumption, soil moisture, soil temperature, and electrical conductivity and to transmit sensor data to your portal or application. 

Water Consumption 

Know your water consumption – ensure the optimal amount of water is used for your crops.

Water is the most precious resource on Earth. Life depends on it. Water used for irrigation is pumped from reserves of groundwater, rivers, and lakes. Of course, crops also receive water from precipitation. According to paper published by MIT, 69% of the world’s freshwater withdrawals are committed to agriculture. Monitoring water usage in Agriculture helps farmers not just optimize irrigation and avoid overusage but also to preserve this precious resource. 

Soil Moisture and Temperature 

Know your soil moisture and soil temperature – optimize your plant growth rate and protect your plant root system against sudden changes of soil temperature. 

An increase in moisture content decreases the soil temperature differences between day-time and night-time, which provides protection to the plant root system against sharp and sudden changes of soil temperature. Solar energy absorption increases as the moisture content increases, which results in a higher heat storage capacity at higher moisture content. Plant growth rate and yield increase due to the modification of plant climate at higher moisture content. 

Electrical Conductivity 

Know your soil’s electrical conductivity – optimize your yields, crop suitability and plant nutrient availability. 

Soil electrical conductivity (EC) is a measure of the amount of salts in soil (salinity of soil). It is an important indicator of soil health. It affects crop yields, crop suitability, plant nutrient availability, and activity of soil microorganisms which influence key soil processes including the emission of greenhouse gases such as nitrogen oxides, methane, and carbon dioxide. Excess salts hinder plant growth by affecting the soil-water balance. Soils containing excess salts occur naturally in arid and semiarid climates. Salt levels can increase as a result of cropping, irrigation, and land management. Although EC does not provide a direct measurement of specific ions or salt compounds, it has been correlated to concentrations of nitrates, potassium, sodium, chloride, sulfate, and ammonia. For certain non-saline soils, determining EC can be a convenient and economical way to estimate the amount of nitrogen (N) available for plant growth.  

Set Your Crops Up for Success 

Monitoring water usage, soil moisture and temperature, and electrical conductivity are critical factors that every farmer should consider. With all the pressure to get started planting, spraying, irrigating and increasing yields, it is important to take the time to ensure you are setting your crop up for success.
