Farmo technology is not intended to replace human oversight but can allow much more frequent monitoring and provide historical insights for analysis.

Save water and farm more efficiently with a better understanding of your soil conditions using the Farmo Soil Moisture & Temperature Sensor. Receive multiple readings every day to monitor short term fluctuations and analyse long term trends.

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

The reading from the soil moisture sensor is the raw volumetric water content in the soil, with a lower and upper limit that varies depending on the soil type. We explain how to interpret soil moisture readings in more detail on our soil moisture information page.
