Zyter said it has introduced an IoT-based solution to help farmers and agronomists make smarter, more informed crop management decisions.
Current farming practices and solutions struggle to meet the growing global demand for food supplies. Zyter Smart Agriculture brings crop management into the digital age and supports sustainable precision agriculture, improved efficiencies and higher yields, the company said in a press release.
The Zyter SmartSpaces platform, with data captured by IoT sensors and analysed with AI, it gives farmers and agronomists a comprehensive virtual view of the farm ecosystem with emphasis on automating and improving standard crop management practices to achieve more sustainable, precision agriculture.
The new launch gathers data on soil and atmospheric conditions from a network of IoT sensors buried in the ground and placed in various locations across the farm. In-ground sensors monitor measurement data that indicates soil health, including moisture, nutrients, and solar radiation levels. Other IoT-enabled devices, such as weather stations, generate temperature, precipitation, wind speed, and air quality measurements.
“Today’s farmers are challenged to produce more yield to meet the growing global demand for food supplies, but with fewer labor resources,” said Sanjay Govil, founder and CEO of Zyter, Inc. “Zyter Smart Agriculture helps farmers increase efficiency and improve crop yield with precision agriculture practices, greater insights and more informed decision making.”
