Ento has partnered with Spark to deploy the Crikit as part of the Arable Farming IoT Pilot at Lincoln University. The pilot is an initiative by the New Zealand IoT Alliance and brings together a consortium of technology providers to design and demonstrate solutions for farmers.
In late December Brett broke out his gumboots to install two Ento Crikit devices at the farm - the first to monitor entry activity via an access gate, and the second to communicate soil moisture levels as logged by an externally connected Soil Moisture Probe.
Using the Crikit Soil Moisture solution, farmers are provided valuable insight into soil status and are able to manage irrigation for optimal crop production.
Ento looks forward to the insights gained and discussions generated during the pilot.
