contribution

Being part of IoF2020, ART21 utilises spectral data analysis and IoT technology for optimised decision-making in potato and wheat farming.

Agrochemicals costs represent a significant portion of farmers’ overall expenses. The latest hyperspectral imaging technologies combined with IoT have the potential to transform today’s agriculture challenges into tomorrow’s profits by supplying farms with innovative crop management methods and tools.

By applying hyperspectral imaging to detect the amounts of lacking micro and macro nutritional elements in plants, as well as the state of soil moisture, organic matter or climate conditions, fertilisers costs can be reduced, while also improving the farm’s overall efficiency and productivity.
