Use Cases Precision Farming

Precision Farming

Precision farming enables farmers to increase production (yield), lower their operational costs and economize their applications of chemicals and fertilizers. Precision Conservation Management (PCM) focuses on improving crop yield through the analysis of real-time data from a variety of environmental sensors and other data sources located in commercial crop fields or throughout the enterprise.

The five core components or processes of precision farming are: measuring variability, analyzing variability, decision-making, differential actions, assessment of results and measuring.

Freight Farms: Innovative Agriculture through the IoT
Freight Farms’ goal was to create a connected farming environment that was simple to set-up, highly responsive, easy to scale, and would offer a path to future features and services - from day-to-day operations, to support, to growing optimizations, connecting their farms delivers an even greater experience to their farmers. After internal constraints for the hours of support required to build, integrate and maintain their own IoT solution, Freight Farms began looking at and evaluating IoT partners they could trust.

Z Farms was facing three challenges: costly irrigation systems with water as a limited resource, narrow optimal ranges of soil moisture for growth with difficult maintenance and farm operators could not simply turn on irrigation systems like a faucet.

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.

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.
