Key Benefits


The Innovitro solution in Agricultural IoT results in:

  • Much more efficient way in managing the irrigation system and corp health monitoring. Watering of corp is done when the condition is met and match the plant needs, without excessive waste of water resource, and fertiliser.
  • Reduce cost in controlling the fertilising level to the optimum.
  • Fast respond to the degradation of crop quality from the continuous monitoring of the health from the attacking threats, like insects or outbreaks.
  • Collective data for cognitive analytic can help in future prediction and proactive respond before the disaster go out of hand.

Innovitro Solution


The environment of watering and pesticide and fertiliser control can be achieve via the use of multiple type of sensors.  These sensors can be installed at the crop site, in the soil, around the trunk, or even at the leaves.  These sensor will monitor the moisture of the soil, the wetness at the leaves, the size of the trunk, the air humidity level, the O2 or the CO2 gas level, or other toxic gas that may produces from the fungus. The senses data will be transmitted back to the processing station. The system will send the command to control the irrigation system, or inform the farmer of the level of sand, fertiliser, and weather condition to let the farmer make decision of what actions are required.


These collected data can also be stored and analysed over time for seasonal impact factors. The farmer can prepare of what to expect when a certain condition meets at the certain time of the year. The action may involves the operating of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to fly over the trouble-spotted zone and survey and transmit the image back from remote.

Challenge


The management of agricultural farming entails assessing crop growth, measuring irrigation requirements, monitoring fertiliser requirements, and monitoring climatological aspects. This provides the prediction and identification to optimise the use of chemicals and to gain most of the agricultural product at optimum costing.


There has been applying of some autonomous technology like time to schedule the irrigation. It becomes common to see the watering system functions when the crops are soaked with rain. Sometimes humidity is so high and the system still pump the water resulting in excessive wetness.
