Soil Moisture Management

Soil moisture is one of the most critical elements for successful plant growth and profitable agriculture. We are lucky in NZ that, for the most part, we have adequate rainfall to produce high quality primary industry commodities . Unfortunately it just doesn’t fall where and when we need it. It’s our responsibility, as land stewards, to use this resource in the most efficient and effective way possible, ensuring that we’re applying enough to reach production targets while remaining environmentally sustainable.

Soil moisture is not only pertinent to irrigated farming though, it is fundamental to the success of all land-based primary industry sectors, even dryland. And at Vantage NZ, we wanted to bring a solution to New Zealand’s agriculturalists to help them manage this precious resource more efficiently, with a cost effective soil moisture monitoring solution.
