Through its portable sensor monitoring software, Terra Ferma allows farmers and ranchers to keep track of areas such as water levels, crops, stockyards, and fields. Using the information gathered from Terra Ferma communications systems, farmers can make important decisions throughout all stages of the animal and plant life cycle. In particular, farmers gain access to field information such as nutritional levels, soil moisture, and temperature levels. Using only their personal computers or tablets, farmers can measure out the exact amount of water needed for each crop, which increases overall yields and significantly reduces costs. Many Terra Ferma systems rely on sustainable wind and solar power, which adds an additional layer of portability and convenience to agricultural operations.
