Dutch technology provider Sensoterra and Australian LoRaWAN network operator NNNCo announce a partnership to bring affordable soil moisture monitoring to farmers in the Asia Pacific region.
Sensoterra offers hardware as well as software for wireless soil moisture sensor solutions. Their soil moisture sensors use LoRaWAN (Long Range Wide Area Networks) to connect to the internet, also referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT).
To empower farmers and agricultural organisations in the AsiaPac region to make data-driven land management decisions and reduce water consumption, the company is now teaming up with Australian NNNCo (National Narrowband Network Co).

“NNNCo is providing local warehousing of our LoRaWAN AS frequency in Australia. Together we can provide connectivity and support for customers in the region, helping to unlock the potential for smart city and AgTech adoption. NNNCo will be able to offer both our single depth and multi depth sensors”, says Bas Van Der Velden, Commercial Director at Sensoterra.
Sensoterra is already helping farmers across Europe and the US to track soil moisture levels in a wide variety of crops. The low-cost soil moisture sensors are not only sold directly, but also to partners who incorporate the sensors in various solutions including those of CNH Industrial/ AgXtend and Lemken. The company was founded in 2014 and is based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
