Agriculture

NWAVE’S TECHNOLOGY IS IDEALLY SUITED TO HELP ADDRESS THE CHALLENGES FACING AGRICULTURE, THE ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT. The global population is growing rapidly and food security is a serious concern. The past few years have seen food riots. Most of world food is grown on irrigated land in water scarce areas, and 70% of fresh water usage is for agriculture. 3000 trillion litres are used every year, of which 1500 trillion litres are wasted. Growers need to use water with optimal efficiency while also increasing yields and improving crop quality.

Irrigated cropland produces 40 percent of the global food supply.
Agriculture currently accounts for more than 70 percent of all human water usage.
Global water demand is expected to rise 50 percent by 2030, with agriculture driving nearly half of that additional demand.
The global population is expected to reach 9.6 billion people by 2050, creating huge strains on world agriculture.

Nwave is working with the most advanced suppliers of grower dashboards for smart agriculture, to provide them with real-time agricultural sensor data, with an emphasis on precision irrigation. We are enabling growers to produce higher yields of better quality crops, while helping to conserve natural resources.

Nwave’s low cost, low power and long-range connectivity for devices is ideal for rural environments, where other forms of connectivity may be unavailable or too costly.

Our platform makes it possible to connect thousands of devices cheaply, giving growers access to real-time in-field sensor data that can help them make pro-active decisions to improve yields and crop quality.

As well as providing simple, robust connectivity for agricultural sensors and devices at a low cost, Nwave is also actively working with technology partners to create new low-cost connected devices for smart agriculture.
