As the global supply of fresh becomes increasingly scarce, tools for water use management are becoming invaluable to farmers and consumers who want to contribute at home.

Wellntel is a water technology company that is on the forefront of developing water-measuring and management systems for farmers. Its system uses sound sensors to read the water levels in a wall, without physically touching the water or any openings in the well. These sensors then transmit the data to the WellIntel website, so that consumers can check into their protected accounts to monitor water levels after big events like pumping and rainfall.

Now that it's becoming extremely apparent that traditional irrigation methods for agriculture are wasteful, alternative and more efficient solutions like aeroponics and hydroponics are coming to light.
