Farmers spend countless hours each month driving to their different fields, checking moisture levels and turning on and off irrigation valves. This costs time, money and can be very water and labour inefficient.

However, with WaterBit’s smart, solar-powered irrigation solution, growers don’t even have to leave their pickup truck to get precise irrigation to crops – they can do it using our cloud-connected devices and dashboard. WaterBit is a smart irrigation company that uses IoT technology to make it easy to remotely and precisely monitor and irrigate fields. The core of our technology is the proprietary WaterBit Carbon node.

Smaller than a lunchbox, Carbon transmits data with long-range radio technology and is powered by a tiny solar cell – no batteries, which means no maintenance! It is paired with soil moisture probes and the WaterBit Pressure Sensor for monitoring; our Block Valve Controller to turn on and off waterflow; our Flow Meter for real-time data on water flow and usage. Using our online Dashboard, growers can see whatOs happening in their fields 24/7 and deliver exactly the right amount of water at the right time–all without wasting time or gas driving to field-to-field. This precise irrigation also leads to improved water efficiency, less leaching and run-off, and can improve crop yield and quality.

Crops where WaterBit is deployed: Asparagus, Corn, Cotton, Dates, Leafy Greens, Rice, Specialty Organic, Strawberries, Tomatoes, Tree Nuts, Wheat, Wine Grapes.
