Water efficiency is becoming increasingly important in agriculture. Norwegian innovation company 7Sense, using Telia NB-IoT connectivity, have developed an irrigation monitoring system that optimises water usage and efficiency.
If there is a leak, the farmer is notified immediately, so they can prevent not only damage to their crops, but also water wastage. It also makes it easier to accurately see what’s going on and to know when to move sprinklers etc.
In the near future, it will be possible to take connected agriculture one step further thanks to the Telia IoT Platform. Farmers will be able to turn on and off taps remotely – or set them up to do it themselves according to real time weather conditions.
