Sustainable production of high quality food
Figure: Fresh and high quality produce with products by VIRTENIO.
Since the beginning up to the present time, agriculture has developed from personal needs, family farms and medium-sized companies to a highly optimized manufacturing industry. The processes involved in the production of high quality products at a regulated price range from breeding, cultivation, harvesting and processing up to distribution. Monitoring and analysis is required throughout these processes. This can not be solely accomplished with the experience of farmers. Complex systems and products are increasingly equipped with mechanical and electronic systems for managing complexity.
To meet requirements, the production must be optimized. For this optimization process measurement data from the field of application is essential. Regarding the agricultural sector information about soil moisture, rainfall, temperature, humidity and solar radiation are of interest. A higher resolution in data recording of, for example, soil moisture, can optimize an irrigation system. This would lower water consumption and allow selective administering of water.
With products by VIRTENIO sensors and actuators can be flexibly used in agriculture. Due to the implementation of wireless communication information can be captured in unprecedented quantities from large and dispersed areas and transferred together to a central point.
