Inovative solutions and technologies applied in precision agriculture
Today, precision agriculture and technology has become indispensable, especially when it comes to their impact on farms in Romania. Precision farming is the future and progress of farms in Romania. More and more farmers return to the latest technology (GPS monitors and automated systems, sensors, monitoring and control, etc.) to facilitate their work and achieve outstanding results with distributed resources control.
Vantage Company, with knowledge both on the agronomy and the technical area, working closely with Romanian farmers to draw their attention to technological future without which we can not evolve.
Here the technologies and solutions that deliver long-term results that Vantsage specialists suggest specialists to Romanian farmers:
- Automated systems and GPS monitors
There is no doubt about precision farming operation with a GPS system. Manual and automatic GPS guidance solutions drew attention to more and more Romanian farmers because they want speed and efficiency in agricultural field work. The benefits of these types of GPS solutions may include reduction in operator fatigue, accuracy in farming operations, reducing production costs, minimizing damage and improving crop production.
2. Farm management programs
Once farmers have realized the importance of precision farming practice, the next innovation that drew their attention is the impact of the mobile apps on any farm.
- Monitoring program for fleet and fuel
- The relevance of sensor application in precision agriculture
Wireless sensors are proving to be effective in precision agriculture and to gather data on:
- water availability in the soil;
- compacting the soil;
- soil fertility;
- leaf area index;
- local weather data, etc.
So, in this way, you can make objective decisions on the quality of fertilizer applied to a crop. On the other hand, more and more farmers are facing increased excess weeds, a situation which hampers agricultural operations and cause them to turn to invest amount of increasingly large chemical weed control.
Innovative systems can help to reduce up to 80% keeping costs under control weeds, reducing the cost of chemicals, reducing working hours and reducing the impact of activities on the environment.
