A company in New Zealand is using the Internet of Things to track and reduce water consumption across the country’s farmland.

 

In deployments thus far, water use has been decreased by 30%. Wireless sensors and stations track as moisture passes crops and absorbs into the soil, whether rain or systematic watering, and records data for users.

 

Combing flow sensors and RFID portals, as well as live mobile viewing applications, this setup not only makes the farms more efficient, it also elicits more responsible use of water and allows businesses to adhere to government agricultural regulations.
