Sensoterra is the robust, simple and fully wireless solution to soil moisture measurement for agriculture and horticulture.
Wireless, IoT Technology
For most locations, the probes connect with existing LoRaWAN infrastructure. For rural areas, a LoRaWAN gateway should be placed up to 2.5 kilometers (1.5 miles) from the probes, which can be supplied for indoor and outdoor applications. This gateway uploads the data to the cloud, and is capable of managing an unlimited number of wireless soil moisture sensors. The revolutionary Sensoterra soil moisture solution is self-sustaining, wireless and remote.

Sensoterra soil moisture measurements happen in two parts. Firstly an in-the-ground measurement and secondly an in-the-cloud calibration. Your sensors will take a soil moisture reading every hour and send the data over the LoRaWAN network to the cloud. We calibrate the measurement in the cloud to match the selected soil type to provide you with more actionable data.
You can access your data in the cloud via an intuitive web-based interface or on your smartphone using the Sensoterra app. We have an API for integrating the data into your own data dashboard or system.
The sensors you need depends on the active root zone of the crop you want to measure. We recommend 5-10 sensors per location to ensure you have enough data points to make a remote decision.
Our single depth sensors are available in 15cm, 30cm, 60cm and 90cm (6", 12", 24", and 36") lengths. We hold stock of all four lengths in the UK.
