We develop revolutionary soil sensing technologies to unlock the future of data-driven farming.
Coming in 2022
Soil Nutrient Sensing Solution
We are developing state-of-the-art nutrient sensing technology which will be launched in 2022. Follow us to keep posted on important updates.
Soil Moisture
Management
Solution
We have developed an innovative soil moisture management solution that enables fact-based irrigation for farmers optimized for their unique situation leading to significant water savings and optimized crop productivity
Saturnia sensor
Our wireless sensors measure:
  • Soil moisture
  • Air humidity & pressure
  • Air and soil temperature
  • Solar radiation
  • Soil electrical conductivity and soil texture
Root zone moisture content (RZMC)
  • Measures at multiple depths
  • Compatible with all soil types
  • Measurement of volumetric water content between 4% to 30% depending on soil content
  • Measurement of soil electrical conductivity (e.g. salinity)
  • Minimizes industry wide soil-sensor contact issues
  • Calibrated against a library of gravimetric water content measurements for a wide range of soil types
  • Measurement principle based on frequency domain reflectometry (FDR)
Microclimate
  • Air temperature (-40 to 85°C), pressure (300 to 1100 hPa), UV, VIS and IF radiation, humidity (10 to 90% rel)
  • Soil temperature (0 to 50 °C), soil organic carbon (SOC and Corg content in g/kg or 0.3 to 3%)
Connectivity / GPS
  • Local via BlueTooth Low Energy (BLTE)
  • Bi-directional communication to data center via LoRa or NB-IoT
  • Measurement of volumetric water content between 4% to 30% depending on soil content
  • Measurement of soil electrical conductivity (e.g. salinity)
  • Minimizes industry wide soil-sensor contact issues
  • Calibrated against a library of gravimetric water content measurements for a wide range of soil types
  • Measurement principle based on frequency domain reflectometry (FDR)
Physical
  • Dimensions: 100 x 100 x 100 mm station with 0.5 m ground probe  
  • Weight: 500 grams, including battery and weather-proof housing (IP 68)
Battery
  • Battery life of 3+ years in continuous recording mode
  • Battery pack available through order with next day delivery
Intuitive and
easy-to-use mobile app.
Our intuitive soil moisture system is customized to your unique situation and provides you with all your management data in one place.
  • 1
    Install sensors
    Install sensors based on our intuitive user instructions and set up your App / Desktop version to define users and authorization and manage your settings
  • 2
    Customize fields
    Load, draw and name your fields so you can easily define and manage distinct irrigation locations
  • 3
    Customize soil
    Add soil properties to customize soil moisture values to your unique soil conditions. Our solution allows for combinations of different soil types at different depths
  • 4
    Assign crops
    Select crops for each field to enable specific irrigation recommendations tailored to your crop type and crop growth phase. Data can be edited at all times to allow for crop rotation
  • 5
    Connect local weather stations
    Connect to local weather stations to account for local conditions, add your irrigation data and connect drone imagery so you have all your management information at one place
