Precision agriculture aims to provide for the better understanding, planning and management of crop cultivation. It achieves this by employing the use of in-situ and remotely positioned sensors to collate a wide variety of pertinent physical data.
Precision Agriculture optimizes returns on inputs and preserves resources through Monitoring and Control Solutions.
Donix has provided solutions to various clients in this field, in the form of sub-terrestrial moisture and soil pH probes, RF relays, gateways, stand alone units, weather station units and data transmission services.
Precision agriculture also provides farmers with a wealth of information to:
Build up a record of their farm
Foster greater traceability
Enhance marketing of farm products
Improve lease arrangements and relationship with landlords
Enhance the inherent quality of farm products (e.g. protein level in bread-flour wheat)
