Agriculture relies heavily on water. Irrigation alone accounts for 65% of freshwater withdrawals globally, excluding thermoelectric power. It should come as no surprise, then, that water technologies are essential to agriculture's future.
Pivot irrigation is an efficient method of watering crops. The center pivot station houses a motor and a water pumping station. Water comes from a lake or a river source and runs through pipes under the ground to the pivot center.
Since water is the main carrier of nutrients, it's essential that the water have as few impurities as possible. Poor water quality may cause plants to suffer from stunted growth, nutrient deficiencies, bacterial contamination and more!
As a vital resource for plant-growing, water plays an especially important role in agriculture. This article examines the importance of water quality monitoring with regard to indoor agriculture, and how IoT water sensors are key to enhancing crop yield.
Lowering of energy costs, acceleration of growth and extension of the possible storekeeping duration can be optimised by the precise measurement of humidity, CO2-content and temperature. Optimum basic conditions for animals and plants ensure best agricultural products. As different applications demand various adopted solutions for optimization of agricultural processes, E+E Elektronik provides a broad portfolio of agricultural monitoring products
