USE CASE – Urban green spaces

Paris have 3 000 green spots watered manually by gardeners, and its number is increasing with a growing demand.

Solution details

  • HummBox Soil & Weather into each green spot, to monitor soil humidity and temperature, pluviometer and wind speed
  • Dashboards and maps to optimize watering round trip
  • Interoperability with weather forecast (temperature, rainfall and UV index…) to adjust the prediction for watering need
  • KPIs: humidity, autonomy, soil temperature & moisture

Key benefits

  • Reduce up to 46% of unusefull round trips, to check soil humidity
  • Manage more green spaces
  • Reduce plant water stress, with high cost impact
  • Reduce water consumption

USE CASE – Truffle culture

Implemented in 2016, HummBox helped me to double the production in 2017Alain M...

During both « bearth » and « growth » periods, soil humidity rate and low variations have a strong impact on performance. Continuous monitoring of soil humidity provides a valuable information to manage watering conditions and improve productivity.
