Soil monitoring solution

M2M technology gives primary producers greater visibility and control of their land assets, and can free up time by automating simple tasks.

A sensor detects that the soil moisture in a vineyard has dropped below an ideal level. A message is automatically sent to switch on the irrigation system until the moisture content returns to the acceptable range, helping ensure optimum growing conditions and water consumption. Meanwhile, the viticulturist has visibility of the soil's moisture level via an app accessible on his smart phone.
