SPsmartplant offers an IoT-led Crop Management Software

Agricultural productivity largely depends upon how well farmers manage their crops. Besides, not all crops need the same type of care. Therefore, catering to these diverse requirements manually is not quite effective as well as error-prone. To streamline the process, AgriTech startups are deploying technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) to automate crop management and cater to the specific needs of each crop.

Thai startup SPsmartplant develops an IoT-led crop management software. It consists of a control system for the operation of electrical equipment related to crops such as water pumps, solenoid valves, ventilation fans, lights, sunshades, etc. The system connects to sensors which measure factors like air temperature, air and soil humidity, water pH, and photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD). Additionally, an automatic water control system allows the users to set water on/off timer according to the requirement of each plant.

AgriPredict advances Plant Disease Detection

Most farmers, especially the ones in the rural areas do not have access to timely agricultural information such as newly discovered diseases in plants and predictions regarding rainfall, temperature, wind speed, and humidity. This adversely affects their yield. To address this, startups are utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) to detect diseases or pest attacks in plants at an early stage, thereby preventing capital and crop losses.

AgriPredict is a Zambian startup that enables plant disease detection. The process involves farmers taking pictures of suspected diseased plants and the machine learning-based system providing a diagnosis. It also offers the treatment options and location of the nearest agro-dealers. Moreover, once a disease or pests are detected in a district, the information is made accessible to the farmers by dialing a shortcode. In addition, the farmers receive weather predictions which assist their planning.

Digital Agriculture Services enables Automatic Crop Monitoring

Large-scale farmers usually grow a variety of crops over a huge area. Monitoring all the crops manually would require the farmers to walk the fields, which is hectic and cumbersome. Drones present an alternative but are expensive and require a drone pilot. As a result, startups are developing software that uses technologies like global satellite remote sensing and AI to identify crops and analyze their condition and yield.

Australian startup Digital Agriculture Services provides an automatic crop monitoring software, ​​Cropping Hub. It uses remote sensing and AI to identify and classify up to 10 crops, including cereals such as wheat, barley, oats, and pulses like chickpeas and lentils. The software then predicts hectares planted for them and forecasts yields across any season. It further offers data on in-season declines associated with drought, frost, and more at the paddock, farm, region, state, and national scale.

DeepAgro develops a Weed Detection Software

Herbicides represent a significantly high percentage of the total agrochemical expenditures. However, a lot of it is wasted as farmers mistakenly spray them on non-targeted plants. Also, herbicides being inherently toxic to plants may have adverse effects even on the desired plants. To resolve this, startups are developing solutions that detect weed and signal when to open the nozzle and spray, thus preventing wastage of herbicides and saving the crops from damage.

DeepAgro is an Argentine startup that develops AI-led weed detection software to reduce the wastage of herbicides. The AI guides the cameras installed in the wings of the sprayers to determine the exact moment in which each nozzle must be opened and closed. The startup also provides modules that consist of a camera, a computer, and individual electrovalves for each nozzle. This allows modification of every kind of sprayer and provides efficient control in herbicide application.

Complete Farmer provides an Online Marketplace

As the farmers’ profit depends upon the sale of their produce, choosing the appropriate buyers is very important. As a result, AgriTech startups are developing online marketplaces for selling agricultural produce. This allows farmers to earn profits from the comfort of their homes, and get the opportunity to compare various offers to select the best ones. Such platforms also provide them with updates regarding market prices, thus, enabling them to make informed decisions.

Based out of Ghana, Complete Farmer is a startup that offers Digifarmer, an online marketplace for farm produce. The farmers can choose a buyer of their choice from a selection of vetted buyers to sell their harvested crops. The startup also provides access to proprietary cultivation protocols through the use of satellite and IoT technologies. It collects crop insights that are used in optimizing crop growth, supply chains, and farm management, to meet export market demands.
