Rice Field Irrigation Monitoring

A half of the world’s population relies on rice as their staple food supply, and over 80 million Ha, utilizing more than half the available freshwater, is dedicated to growing rice in flooded fields. The current and future potential for water scarcity applies pressure on the techniques rice farmers use to grow rice crops sustainably.

The IntelliRice™ Sensor

The Intellirice monitoring system incorporates affordable, reliable technology into a simple design that continuously monitors water resources within the rice field it is deployed. The sensors within the device track ponding water levels so that evaporative losses can be countered timely with flooded water inputs. For those utilizing an alternate wet and dry technique (AWD) to reduce water loss, the water level sensor will also monitor water levels below the ground surface, while the moisture sensor will track any changes in soil moisture that might increase crop stress.
