New Ways of Farming – Revving up Productivity with Sensor-based Data Collection

Knowing the development and the latest results of science and technology, we have knowledge in the field of plant protection, whereby the profitability and safety of production can be improved by 30-40% or even more.

As an example, it is mentioned that the appearance of certain pathogens depends only on weather conditions. In certain circumstances, it will surely appear if circumstances do not exist, but it certainly does not appear. That is, so-called mathematical-biological formulas and models can be set up that can be used to tell the exact probability of a particular pathogen by software. For this, we need to know precisely the weather data for the previous period and the instrumental prediction data for a specific area. Based on these, we can predict exactly when the particular pathogen will appear in a specific production area.

This will allow farmers to take precautionary steps in due time or even if circumstances do not make sure that the particular pest will not appear, then no need for money to be given for prevention. This can also significantly reduce the environmental load and the costs.

Accurate recording of weather events gives you a complete picture of how much water, sunshine, and evaporation you have been in a given area, how long the area was in a highly moisturised state. Soil temperature, nutrient and moisture content is also very important for determining the ideal time for certain agricultural activities.

For example, as one of the most important aspects can be how to determine the ideal time of harvesting. We need to know exactly how much water the concrete area has been, how much time the evaporated rainfall evaporated or leaked, how much sunlight had the area in question, knowing another parameter is essential to tell if the harvest is actually ready for harvest.
