The role of soil sensor in smart agriculture

User:JXCTUpload time:Sep 18 2021

Soil is the main material basis for the survival of plants. It can provide crops with the necessary water, fertilizer, heat and air during their growth. With the rapid development of science and technology in today’s society, the requirements for agricultural planting soils no longer need to be judged by traditional experience. The advent of various intelligent soil sensor makes modern agriculture more efficient and accurate. Various soil detectors provide scientific data basis for agricultural planting production. What are the specific parameters that need to be monitored? What does it do?

Various soil sensors:

Soil moisture sensor: also known as soil moisture sensor. Consists of stainless steel probes and waterproof probes. It can be buried in soil and dams for long-term use. Fixed-point monitoring and online measurement of moisture content in the surface and deep soils. Used in conjunction with the data collector. It can be used as a tool for fixed-point monitoring or mobile measurement of moisture (ie, farmland moisture detector).

Soil temperature sensor: The soil temperature sensor can monitor the temperature of soil, atmosphere and water. Suitable soil temperature is conducive to the growth of plants. Too low or too high temperature is not conducive to plant growth. The seeds of crops must germinate within a suitable soil temperature range. Within a certain temperature range. The higher the soil temperature, the faster the growth and development of crops. Different plants have different requirements for temperature. By monitoring the soil temperature, the soil temperature is kept within the suitable growth temperature range for crops. Ensure that crops increase production and income.

Soil EC sensor: At present, the soil EC value quickly measured in the field is mainly measured by a digital display soil EC meter. The principle adopts a special metal material as the sensor. To realize the rapid determination of EC value of soil, etc. The high concentration of soluble salts can damage plants or cause the death of plant roots. Soil EC sensors can improve this situation.

Soil sensor advantages

Soil sensors are monitoring crop irrigation, soil air changes, and large-area surface detection. Sensing technology is playing an increasingly important role in the development of precision agriculture. So as to realize scientific monitoring and reasonable planting. Help agricultural people resist and reduce disasters. Improve the comprehensive benefits of agriculture and promote the transformation and upgrading of modern agriculture.
