Soil moisture, the water held within the pores of the soil is important as agriculture is dependent on it. Irrigation is required when the moisture present in soil falls below the permanent wilting point, the need of which can be analyzed by monitoring the soil moisture of the farms.
Due to over-extraction of groundwater, in most of the parts of India, groundwater is depleting at an alarming rate. As Groundwater irrigation is dependent on the electricity, the optimal allocation of electricity according to soil moisture content of the farms can serve as a solution for the aforesaid problem.
Aapah Innovations, with the help of its high-resolution soil moisture data, is capable of finding the optimal amount of electricity to be provided to a farm based on its soil moisture, which can aid government and other decision making agencies to take the required action.
