Food of high quality and sustainably cultivated
From its beginnings to the present day, agriculture has evolved from a personal need to family businesses and medium-sized companies to a highly optimised manufacturing industry. The processes for producing products of consistently high quality under a given price pressure require monitoring and analysis from cultivation, harvesting and processing through to distribution. At present, this can no longer be achieved solely through the experience of farmers. Complex plants and goods are increasingly equipped with mechanical, electrical and electronic systems to cope with complexity.
In order to meet the requirements, generation must be optimised. Measurement data from the field of application are indispensable for this optimization process. Information on soil moisture, precipitation, temperature and humidity as well as solar radiation are of interest to the agricultural sector. Artificial irrigation can be optimized by a higher resolution in data acquisition for soil moisture, for example. This requires less water, which can also be better dosed selectively.
VIRTENIO’s radio technology makes it possible for sensors and actuators to be used flexibly in agriculture. Due to the possibility of wireless communication, information can be collected in an unprecedented quantity from large and distributed areas and transferred to a central point. If you are interested in implementing innovative solutions in the field of agriculture, please contact VIRTENIO.
