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.

Precision beekeeping with wireless temperature monitoring
Honeybees are insects of large economic value and provide a vital service to agriculture by pollinating a variety of crops. In addition, bees provide us with valuable products such as honey, beeswax, propolis, bee venom, etc. Monitoring of honeybee colony health, population, productivity, and environmental conditions affecting the colony health have always been exceedingly difficult tasks in apiculture. Research has shown that even small deviations (by more than 2°C) from the optimal temperatures have a significant influence on the development of the brood and the health of adult bees.

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.

Rainwater Harvesting
NC State sought an optimized rainwater harvesting system to eliminate wet-weather discharge and retain water for irrigation.

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.
