Kerlink and Sensoterra launch partnership to help farmers reduce water use


Kerlink and Sensoterra have announced a partnership that will empower farmers to make data-driven, land-management decisions and reduce their water consumption by up to 30 per cent.

Using Kerlink’s LoRaWAN-based Low Power IoT Reference Design platform to produce a new class of soil-moisture sensors, Sensoterra will launch its new sensors in the U.S., Europe and the Asia Pacific region beginning this year.

The company was founded in 2014 and is based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Today there are over 5,000 Sensoterra sensors in the ground, globally. According to a news release, the company’s current line of probes can measure soil-moisture down to 36 inches with 99.5 per cent accuracy and the company’s software allows users to zoom into conditions around individual probes.
