Tebiti develops wireless sensor network system for use in chili fertigation farming. The objective is to increase the yield and reducing cost. The system is utilising 2.4GHz zigbee based wireless soil moisture monitoring and Precision Agro Control System to more accurately predict and apply irrigation water in farm operations. The plants are grown in containers using soilless substrate coconut peat. These substrates do not retain a lot of water. Being containerized, these plants also have much smaller root systems than field-grown plants. These plants need frequent irrigation to optimize growth rates, plant quality and increase yield.
The goal is to provide growers with the ability to precisely monitor and control applications of water in these production settings, based upon plant requirements and to increase the yield. –For further info
