Use Cases Other Farm Monitoring & Precision Farming

Farm Monitoring & Precision Farming

Farm monitoring and precision farming are farm management concepts that uses sensors, data from external systems, such as weather reports, and network communciation to tailor farming operations to the specific conditions of each field. Farmers generate data via sensors and analyze the information to evaluate current practices and make improvements for greater efficiency and effectiveness. There are a variety of smart farming applications including crop observation, agriculture vehicle Tracking, irrigation management, livestock management, and storage monitoring.

Work with Asparagus Farmers on IoT Solution
The quality of asparagus depends heavily on the temperature of the ground in which it’s grown. To control the temperature, farmers use a two-sided sheet of foil: the black side draws in sunlight to increase the heat of the asparagus bed, and the white side reflects light to cool the bed down. In order to make the right “black or white” decision, the farmer needs to measure the temperature of every field at least once each evening.

Semios Helps Growers Find a Safer Alternative to Harmful Pesticides
Semios has been offering pest management systems using a network of connected devices including pheromone dispensers, automated traps, soil moisture meters, leaf-wetness monitoring and weather stations. Pheromones are an alternative for pesticides. The challenge was that pheromones are generally more expensive than pesticides. To get the growers to adopt pheromones Semios need to automate their delivery in a way that's going to be more cost-effective. The two key elements of precision agriculture are the provision of information based on data collected from the field and, based on that information, timely, precise action to manage the crop. Semios wanted an IoT solution to better manage the data and control the logistic of pheromone.
Executing Precision Farming to Maximize Yields
Executing Precision Farming to Maximize Yields
Traditionally, farmers either apply a high dosage or a high number of repeat sprayings of chemicals as they do not want to risk any disease or damage to the crops on which their livelihoods depend. This is quite inefficient in terms of both time and money wasted. Dacom aimed to increase the effectiveness of these farmers by providing them with accurate, real-time, and streamlined information.

The precision farming market was valued at USD 4.42 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 9.53 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 13.38% during the forecast period.
