A Spanish software company which has developed a platform for precision agriculture is currently aiming at being present in different countries around the world with business partners under a commercial agency agreement. Currently, they work with commercial agents in Argentina, Spain and Mexico.
The platform is based on continuous crop observation and data processing to support the farmer on decision-making. It automatically processes all types of relevant information coming from different sources such as: sensors, satellite images, weather forecasts, fertilizer calculations programs, irrigation algorithms, multispectral images, drone flights, etc.
There are different suppliers for data, technology and algorithms being used by the software, which allows the creation of tailored ‘‘users’’ based on the farmer needs.
The information is geotagged, which allows farmers to compare their data with those of other farmers, making comparisons between periods, areas, campaigns, etc. possible.
In the application, there is a section to add all the actions taken in the fields owned by a farmer:
- Application of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers.
In addition to this, sampling and any annotation or incident can be registered.
