Drawing up Smart Irrigation Strategies with Milesight LoRaWAN® Solenoid Valve Controller

Many factors contribute to the growth, productivity and quality of crops, but water supply is perhaps the most vital one. Soil moisture deficiency will lead to a reduction in growth and longer production times, while over-irrigation will cause water waste and damage to crops. So farmers need a smart irrigation system that implements smart irrigation strategies based on crop’s needs to maximize crop yield and reduce resource waste. Powered by solenoid valve controller, Mileisght offers a smart irrigation solution to improve crop productivity, crop quality and cost control through a wise water supply strategy.
