Soil moisture sensors for irrigation scheduling

Farm connectivity products supplied by TOIP and AquaCheck for soil moisture management, plant water stress monitoring and other purposes.

Around a farm sensors may be installed in strategic places according to Soil EM mapping, soil profiling and yield mapping.

These may be connected by buried cable to LoRaWAN transmitters away from tractor and plough movement.

A LoRaWAN hub may coordinate the data acquisition and send to the Web.

A hosting package may be set up with a portal displaying results in real time.

With 50% rebate the hub (Gateway) may cost $450 and either exposed sensors may cost $315 to $345 or buried sensors with telemetry units may cost $277 to $700 each + $425 each depending on the depths sampled.
