Integrated Solutions for Agriculture & Environment

The world’s population is continually growing. To be able to provide food for this increasing population, production must increase proportionally. That’s where the integration of sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT) can help. Smart sensors embedded in the soil can signal irrigation systems to provide the right amount of water when needed. Other sensors in agricultural storage buildings can provide alerts when conditions such as temperature or humidity exceed desirable ranges. Movement of livestock can be tracked remotely. Crop health can be monitored with images provided by drones that can be analyzed by the cloud. These are just a few examples of where agriculture and technology are starting to merge. With all of this data becoming available, farmers can now use mobile applications to remotely manage and track yields, expenses, and other significant farm details.

Monnit Agriculture Kit

Agriculture Kit

Wouldn't it be great to have a deep understanding of the environmental conditions affecting your yields, so you can prevent problems before they happen? Plants require proper, often very specific conditions for optimal growth and health. The Monnit Remote Monitoring system allows you to track the temperature, humidity, light, and CO around your plants. Our automated system will then alert you if any conditions fall out of optimal ranges, so you can maximize your crops yield.
