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.

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.

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.
