Agtech Australian first: more crop per drop

June 24th, 2020

A new partnership between Australia’s national science agency CSIRO and local agtech company Goanna Ag will see sensors and analytics combined to maximise every drop of irrigation water used to grow crops.

Senaps, our group’s IoT platform is being used to deliver a Digiscape project -Waterwise – as a data service. Waterwise data analysis takes client canopy temperature sensor data and generates a forecast which is then used to calculate plant heat stress as a decision support tool for farmers.

In an Australian first, ‘WaterWise’ is the only water-use efficiency product for irrigated crops that measures crop water stress and predicts future water needs in real time. The tech is set to help growers save water or produce more crop per drop.
