Why Smart?...

The increasing adoption rate of technology in agriculture is justified by the fact that farming is highly land and labor-intensive and farmers are driven to use technology to increase efficiency and manage costs in a very competitive and fickle market.

METRICS

The smart farm management necessitates a comprehensive understanding of the spatial variability of soil nutrients also. This is because crop fields in a small farm context often vary in soil type, elevation, soil fertility and type of crops (e.g. plants grown in rows vs uniform plants coverage).

COMPUTING PLATFORM

Our software platform is able to perform:

  • on-ground monitoring
  • in vehicle -tractors- sensors
  • remote sensing from satellite
  • Data from web
  • proximal sensing through targeted acquisition campaigns and
  • site-specific calibrated provisional crop models application.
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Studies have highlighted the benefits of precision agriculture strategies in reducing the potential off-site transport of agricultural chemicals via surface runoff, subsurface drainage and leaching. At farm-level a software driven by adaptive algorithms will be developed to utilize real-time machine learning to increase the efficiency of N fertilizer use and to avoid/predict nutrient loss.

WHY SMALL?

It is estimated that smallholder farmers represent 86.3% of the EU-28 farms and these farms with less than 20 hectares of utilised agricultural area accounted for more than two thirds (68.1 %) of the labour force directly working on farms. An analysis for 2013 reveals that the most common size of farm in the EU-28 was one with 2 – < 20 hectares of utilised agricultural area.

TRACTOR LINK

Specifically, Abinsula develops two main computing platforms (both in the Tractor)

  1. ECU with precision GPS, IsoBus communication, local ADC and DAC, Telematics capabilities
  2. Gateway multi-protocol with local storage and computation capabilities, protocols for field communication and cloud communication
BIG DATA

The primary aim of precision farming is to ensure profitability, efficiency, and environmental sustainability. This is achieved by integrating the big data gathered by the technology to guide both immediate and future decisions on everything from where in the field to apply a particular rate, to when and where it’s best to apply e.g. irrigation water, chemicals, fertilizers or seeds.
