The Multi-depth Soil Moisture and Temperature sensor includes a 60cm Aquacheck probe and a Farmo NB-IoT telemetry module that sends data to your dashboard in real time.

Increase yield, improve crop quality, save water and electricity costs by measuring soil moisture and multiple depths and controlling more accurately the water applied to your crop or pasture.

Set up to receive multiple readings every day to monitor short term fluctuations and analyse long term trends.

The AquaCheck factory calibrates these probes to read 0 in air and 100 in water. Please note the value returned IS NOT a % of soil moisture, but a scaled frequency unit (SFU). It is also not linear with moisture. If conversion is required to read moisture in volumetric units, then a “soil calibration formula” will need to be used. User must note that soil calibrations are very specific to the particular soil type. If the user requires very accurate volumetric readings, then an “in-filed” calibration would be highly advised.

Out-of-the box configured for instant set up and visualisation on the Farmo dashboard.

Data is sent via NB-IoT which is the long-range, low-cost version of 4G for IoT devices. The signal for NB-IoT travels further than 3G/4G, so if your mobile phone has any reception on site, then NB-IoT devices will work there.
