Delta Sense

Rice is a staple for half the world’s population, thus its impact on land and water use is immense. Standard production practices using continuous flooding (CF) are resource intensive and contribute significant global methane emissions. The technique of alternate-wetting-drying (AWD) uses a more controlled irrigation strategy that can significantly reduce methane emissions as well as water use and pumping costs.

Delta Sense is an IoT enabled soil moisture detector designed and built at Innovation Lab. The sensor is based on the latest industrial grade microcontrollers and the capacitance sensors. The sensor can easily be installed and configured to a present number of moisture readings per day.
