SMART Agriculture

Traditionally, agricultural practices are carried out spatially in a uniform manner, without taking into account the existing variability in the farms, which affects the production and the quality of the obtained crop. A uniform agricultural management is not efficient since different zones are treated in a homogeneous way.

SMART Agriculture is a methodology developed within the framework of Precision Agriculture concept that takes into account the existing variability in the farms in order to maximize quality, increase production and minimize the amount of inputs to be used.

 

 

Since 2004, we have developed and fine-tuned this precision agriculture methodology that is based on the integrated use of "remote sensors" and "in situ sensors" (plant-climate-soil-nutrition). While these last ones provide us, every 15 minutes, data of representative plants of the farm; the remote sensors provide us multispectral data from all the plants of the farm, weekly.

The integration of both types of sensors provides us with spatial and temporal, knowledge which is also digitally registered, allowing its analysis within the framework of a Decision Support System (DSS).

The collected data by this monitoring network are digitally stored as tables and maps, from which information is generated facilitating to farmers a differentiated decision making in the field.

SMART Agriculture integrates data from soil-plant-climate-nutrition sensors, field sampling, multispectral remote sensing and microclimatic forecasting, allowing the characterization of spatial and temporal variability in agricultural holdings.
