Smart soil monitoring with Sentek


Agriculture, horticulture and viticulture industries face diverse environmental and economic challenges. To stay competitive, farmers must maximise yield production and minimise the costly waste of resources such as water, energy and fertiliser.


Remotely measure, monitor and analyse soil moisture, salinity and temperature using sensors integrated into probes developed by Sentek Technologies. Data is transmitted to farmers over 3G using a NetComm Wireless Machine-to-Machine (M2M) device so farmers can:

  • Precisely monitor soil conditions in real time from any location
  • Automatically send data to the cloud for analysis on a dashboard from any computer
  • View trend line stress the yield data needed to predict resource requirements
  • Receive SMS messaging alerts
  • Expand into new markets with global network certification
  • Seamless integration
