Creating a Better World for Future Generations

Smart Agriculture – Precision Farming

Problem

European farms are essential to provide food security in a ever-challenging environment impacted by climate change

Small farms provide the majority of food for local consumption

Improved methods to reduce and optimize water use, control pesticide use and optimize harvesting of food is essential to increase food production while reducing environmental impact 

Actions

Bring capability for connectivity and IoT to small farmers with an affordable, effective tool

Utilize existing sensory devices and deployment methods

Solution

IoT sensors allow farmers to collect a vast array of metrics on every facet of the field microclimate and ecosystem: lighting, temperature, soil condition, humidity, CO2 levels, and pest infections

Results

  • Data enables farmers to estimate optimal amounts of water, fertilizers, and pesticides that their crops need, reduce expenses, and raise better and healthier crops. Resulting in reduced waste, improve yields, and increase farm sustainability
