Smart Agriculture

We can help turn the dial for your farm, from ordinary to smart while also reducing operational costs. We integrate the full system including sensors, automation and visualization. The farming industry has not been at the forefront of the IoT solutions development but it has been evident that farmers can benefit significantly from these technologies.

Population is expected to grow rapidly going towards 2050 and so the demand for food according to the UN’s FAO.

Being able to compete at a global scale means that farmers must find ways to reduce operational costs while increasing productivity. Agriculture remains one of the largest consumers of water, worldwide, and with proper implementation of technology, this area can also improve. 

Using technology to avert the 2050 food shortage prediction

The solution has a lot of benefits but some of the main financial, technical and sustainability benefits are:

  • Water usage reduction by predicting weather conditions, monitoring soil moisture and automating the irrigation process.
  • Visualize production levels, soil moisture, sunlight intensity and more remotely in real-time to accelerate decision making process.
  • Reduce overall operational cost by lowering resource consumption and human error through the automation of various processes.
  • Maintain and monitor farming equipment according to production rates, labour effectiveness and failure prediction.
  • Detect reproduction and health events earlier in animals while geofencing location tracking can also improve livestock monitoring and management.
Crop Management

Managing the life-cycle of crops by understanding various factors such as water holding potential and ripeness amongst others. This is achieved using drones and other high-resolution sensors.

Livestock Management

Employing the use of GPS, RFID and other sensors to manage and monitor cattle, calves and other animals. Farm management is always aware of what's happening in the field.

Process Automation

This involves automation of various processes such as harvesting, fruit picking, soil maintenance, irrigation and others.

Facilities Management

Data collection to enable the management of the fleet and machines to advice when necessary maintenance and replacement is required.
