AirSmat provides End-to-End Farm Management
Intensive farming provides enhanced yield but requires extensive use of fertilizers and pesticides. Due to this, the soil quality declines and these chemicals pollute nearby water bodies such as lakes, rivers, and ponds. However, advancements in farm management using artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, and robotics improve agricultural efficiency. Moreover, such solutions are tailor-made to strengthen the sustainability of agriculture without reducing the production output.
AirSmat is a Nigerian startup that provides end-to-end farm management solutions. The startup’s AI-powered platform uses drone and satellite data to streamline farming operations. AirSmat’s SmatCrows drones are capable of autonomous operation and data capture. This data is then transferred to the startup’s cloud platform, SmatAI, for further analysis. SmatAI uses computer vision and deep learning algorithms to provide plant counts and detect crop rows, weeds, and diseases. Additionally, the startup offers SmatSat that provides real-time weather analytics and water usage data. Thus, AirSmat’s solutions allow farmers and farm owners to improve planning, operations, and yield.
Control Ganadero develops a Livestock Management App
Overcrowding, overgrazing, and carbon emissions are critical concerns in livestock farming. Currently, animal husbandry practices work to improve the overall sustainability of livestock management while advancing profits. Besides, such solutions ensure the hygiene and safety of animals while also improving food quality. To this end, startups develop livestock management solutions that offer extensive visibility into farm operations, further enabling ranchers to address faults in their operations and improve farm profitability.
Colombian startup Control Ganadero develops Livestock Control, a livestock management smartphone app. The startup combines data from various farm operations such as animal performance, employee data, and veterinary details, among others. With this information in a single place, farm managers easily track daily operations in real-time. The Livestock Control app also records weight growth and manages employee work orders as well as registers mastitis, vaccinations, treatments, and growth projections.
Jala Tech enables Data-Driven Shrimp Farming
Catching fish from marine habitats disrupts the food cycle as well as involves resource-intensive operations that leave a large carbon footprint. While farm-raised fish have a smaller footprint, they pollute the environment and reduce the wild populations of certain fish. Besides, aquaculture impacts highly sensitive coastal habitats that filter pollutants and prevent soil erosion. To tackle these issues, startups offer aquaculture management solutions to retain and improve ecosystem quality as well as monitor and track fish production.
Indonesian startup Jala Tech enables data-driven shrimp farming. The startup integrates IoT-based water quality monitoring and data analytics to achieve precision fish farming. Jala Tech also develops Jala Baruno, a water quality monitoring device, as well as Siklus Pro, a shrimp farm management software. Siklus Pro digitizes pond and cultivation data like water quality, daily feed consumption, shrimp sample, and harvest, thus enabling digital shrimp farming. This allows shrimp farmers to monitor farm quality and predict cultivation output based on historical data.
Farm Sathi advances Robotic Farm Management
Agricultural tasks are labor- and time-intensive, which increases operational costs significantly, especially for harvesting, pest control, and sowing. However, advancements in robotics and automation for agricultural applications address this along with human labor shortages. Therefore, startups provide robotic solutions specifically for plant and livestock cultivation. For example, farm managers use autonomous tractors to optimize sowing and smart irrigation systems to reduce production costs. In addition, robotic farm management extends work cycles without losing output consistency.
Farm Sathi is an Indian startup that creates WAPER, an autonomous weed and pest elimination robot. WAPER uses AI to detect weeds and pests in plantations and then its customizable deltoid arms take the necessary action to eliminate it. Its end-of-arm-tooling supports claws, sprayers, and choppers. This enables farmers to minimize human intervention in pest and weed control that speeds up farm operations. Further, the startup develops an IoT-enabled automatic drip system, as well as a tiller which is in development.
Mobble develops a Livestock Farm Management Software
Conventional farm management lacks transparency into farm operations and livestock. This leads to excessive wastage of resources such as feed, human labor, and capital. On the other hand, digitizing farm management centralizes operational data and mitigates data silos, which allows farm owners and managers to make informed decisions that positively affect farm operations. For instance, livestock management software tracks animal sales, medical treatment, and breeding practices that facilitate livestock value prediction.
Australian startup Mobble builds livestock farm management software. Mobble digitizes farm records to save time and make commercial processing of livestock easier. It also provides information on paddock treatments, livestock movements, and inventory management, thereby, speeding up audits and improving compliance. Mobble further allows farm managers to map their farms as well as optimize land management and grazing. Thereby, the startup’s smartphone app simplifies farm management and facilitates communication between farming teams to increase overall efficiency.
