Precision agriculture is all about smarter farming by leveraging technology to assist farmers in reducing their use patterns. For example, with remote and smart sensors, drones, GPS sensors, and guidance technologies, farms can use less water, land, herbicides, and insecticides. The precision agriculture market is expected to grow from $8.5 billion this year to $15.6 billion by 2030, owing to concerns about climate change and agriculture''s environmental impact.

Solinftec, a provider of end-to-end agriculture solutions, has announced a $60 million growth investment round today. It deploys sensors, computers, and displays in farm equipment to provide real-time and in-field data on crops, equipment, inputs, and weather conditions.

A software called Alice AI, which allows customers to schedule and plan their farming operations optimally, and to make real-time decisions and adjustments. Alice AI employs a slew of data science tools, including computer learning, computer vision, and cognitive identification modules, as well as other functions such as logistics, geo-positioning and clustering.

Agricultural variables find structure with AI

The company, which controls more than 27 million acres in Brazil, the United States, and Latin America, has increased its digital farm operations. The company claims to be able to serve 85% of Brazilian sugarcane growers, the top five grain producers in Brazil, and Growmark, the country''s largest agricultural cooperative.

Solinftec, for example, sprays pest-control chemicals or other substances with weather data, to provide real-time insights to farmers about whether they are spraying according to the product label or prescription, which specifies the requirements.

If the conditions were changed throughout the day, we would let them know as soon as it happened, and give them insight on what adjustments they should make based on that.

The variables in agriculture are changing constantly, according to he. Some of them we cant control, such as the weather, so to make real-time decisions AI is vital. AI can do the appropriate calculations and optimize these operations, allowing for more precise agriculture and quicker decision-making.
