Precision agriculture is about smarter farming by employing technology to help farmers in need of less water, land, herbicides, and insecticides. For example, remote and smart sensors, drones, GPS sensors, and guidance techniques, the market is expected to increase from $8.5 billion this year to $15.6 billion by 2030, owing to concerns about climate change and farming''s environmental impact.
Solinftec, a company that provides end-to-end agriculture solutions, has announced a $60 million expansion round today. It utilizes sensors, computers, and displays in farm equipment to provide customers with real-time, in-field information about crops, equipment, inputs, and weather conditions.
Customers can optimally schedule and plan their farm operations, as well as making real-time decisions and adjustments. Alice AI also uses data science tools such as machine learning, computer vision, and cognitive identification techniques, as well as other specific applications such as logistics, geo-positioning and clustering.
Agricultural variables find structure with AI
The company, which manages more than 27 million acres in Brazil, the United States, and Latin America, will get some additional funding. The company claims to be able to provide the services of 85% of Brazilian sugarcane growers, including the top five grain producers in Brazil, and Growmark, a country owned by North America''s largest agricultural cooperatives.
Solinftec, for example, combines data collected from devices with weather data to provide real-time insights to farmers about whether they are spraying according to the product label/prescription, which specifies the requirements for its application.
If the conditions were improved throughout the day, we would notify them as soon as possible and give them an idea of what adjustments they should make.
he explained that agriculture operations are changing constantly. Most of them we cant control, such as the weather, so to make real-time decisions AI is extremely important. AI can, with the correct data to make the appropriate calculations and optimiz these operations, allowing for more precise agriculture and quicker decision-making.
