Flybird Farm Innovations will introduce its vision to improve agricultural productivity and resources management by promoting precision irrigation and fertigation through the sensors-connected, automated controller. Flybird is a social impact agriculture enterprise focused on improvising the farmer livelihood, improving crop yield and production, saving water and electric power, and integrating affordable technologies for farmers through innovative solutions.
Data acquisition and recording are the first steps towards creating measurable value in any supply chain. While automated, IoT based acquisition ensures Data integrity, the ability to plug-in sensors & applications on the fly ensures agility in catering to different types of agriculture supply chains across geographies. Data synthesis across the agricultural dairy supply chain in emerging markets is one such use-case, where the Stellapps' IoT solution, SmartMoo, can help unlock unprecedented value on a very large scale.
Eruvaka Technologies develops connected devices and mobile-based decision tools for affordable monitoring and automation of aquaculture farms. Eruvaka's Smart devices help farmers remotely monitor water quality and feed intake patterns. Also, Eruvaka's artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms precisely dispense the feed based on demand. Using IoT, Eruvaka helps farmers reduce risk and improve productivity by enabling the optimal use of feed and energy, making aquaculture farming sustainable.
Rapid urbanization, aging farm populations, and depleting rural labor resources pose serious threats to our global food security. As rural labor resources come under continued pressure, tractors are the answer. When available, tractors can work 40x faster and be significantly less expensive than off-farm labor. Most farmers, however, can’t afford to own their own tractors and most tractor service providers operate well below their potential.
ThirdEye is a company initiative by FutureWater and HiView, initially created with the support of USAID in the Securing Water for Food program. ThirdEye’s low-cost Flying Sensors (drones) have cameras which can measure the reflection of near-infrared and visual light. These parameters are used to calculate the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). NDVI values give an indication of crop stress and support management decisions regarding the application of resources such as water, seeds, fertilizer, pesticides and manpower.
