There is a significant drive to increase productivity and profitability in agriculture. This has resulted in an increased interest in sensor technologies such as water level sensing to ensure that farm water supply is available on demand, reduce wastage, and more accurate use accounting. Coupled with the industry need, improvements in sensor and digital communication networks have made the technology available to a much wider set of users than ever before, at a lower cost point. This article provides a summary of water level sensing technologies, compares various methods, and provides some basic guidelines on how to select the most appropriate solution for the application at hand.
We have been working hard to improve our website. We have added a lot of new and useful information including articles, helpful videos, and news items.
Have a look at our Blog section for interesting articles on how you can better manage your water resources, or learn more about water sensors. We also have added a live demo of our water monitoring application. Have a browse and let us know what you think, we'd really appreciate your feedback.
