Smart Sensing

Irrigation decisions made portable & cost-effective with CultYvate’s IOT solution

Cutyvate system is built with custom-made minimal hardware components and integrated with advanced multi-point soil moisture sensing technology that can communicate with the cloud to provide automatic alerting to farmers for necessary interventions to be made at the farm.

These alerts are designed to be delivered to the farmer via local language IVR options and SMS.

The system can resend alerts if it is noticed that the farmer has not performed a necessary and timely action. Further delays send notifications to support staff to help farmers.
