The demand for smart irrigation and water-saving in agriculture has triggered the development of different soil moisture sensing techniques that can operate under harsh field conditions. IoT solution with the transmission and reception of data related to farms through devices using the Internet for prediction and providing decisions to the farmers. Continuous monitoring of soil moisture is a common practice in digital agriculture to minimize the effects of waterlogging and drought and increase yield and profitability.
Soil moisture monitoring system is critical for managing water resources in an efficient manner that applies to both irrigated and rainfed cropping systems and is a useful tool to understand what is happening in the root zone of your crop, underflow, and precipitation. In addition, the system can be used as a tool to assist irrigation schedule that helps with irrigation decisions.
