The agriculture industry deals with many daily operations ranging from farmland, equipment, seeds, fertilizers, harvesting, production, and crop maintenance. Farming is one traditional sphere that needs revolutionary latest technologies for modernization. The agriculture industry realizes the need to introduce tech-oriented innovation for providing value to its farmers. Enhanced mobility, transfer of various data realms, and an increase in IoT connected devices have compelled farming companies to adopt the benefits of mobile app development.
Farmers are slowly getting used to managing processes through advanced technologies. These functions majorly include land management, crop quality, horticulture, weather forecasting, soil quality, and fertilizer utilization. With several next-gen technologies like AI, AR/VR, Blockchain coming on the market front, mobile apps can significantly influence farmers by enabling the operational ease and accessibility.
Demand for food is an endless challenge that needs addressing in the most sophisticated way. Mobile apps can enhance agricultural productivity and connect farmers with others in an intelligent manner. According to the Statista estimate, smart agriculture is expected to reach around 27 billion USD market value by 2020.
Predicting the weather is an essential component of agricultural farmers as it helps them make better decisions to secure their crops. Some technologies are also able to develop features like analyzing crop diseases. Farmers can also consult specialists and experts and get the necessary treatment for sick or ill crops. A mobile app can quickly solve these challenges by video calling them anytime they want from any place. By using AI and ML, these apps can also detect the diseased crops, diagnose, process, and transmit images to the laboratories.
Mobile technologies also enable brightness analysis that helps in estimating the amount of light plants intercept. It also helps in analyzing the radiation levels by calculating the position of solar radiation based on real-time GPS data.
Food safety is a significant issue that needs proper redressal by streamlining the supply chain and removing inadequate processes. It is crucial to ensure that production and supply processes work in ideal conditions from the farm to market. For simplifying such processes, blockchain development services enable in tracing the exact sources from where the food comes. Plus, it also becomes possible to determine where the food harvests, processes, and produces. It helps in removing frauds related to false labels and intermediaries. It can even eliminate the need for trust between the transactions with other businesses before transacting with them.
Crop information revolves around soil study, water management, and if they are ready to be harvested/produced. Mobile apps can fetch soil data from various resources that can result in bringing precision to farming activities. It includes analyzing the color of soil, ph level, presence of carbon in soil, climate, and elevation based on the geographical locations. Apart from that, it can also help in analyzing the quality of water, its level, clarity, obstructions in the river path, temperature, and algae covering before it reaches the crops.
Such analysis techniques help in calculating the water required by crops depending on conditions like types of plant, climate changes, seasons, and different stages of growth. Estimating the water requirements enables farmers to supplement water loss so that they can grow them according to themselves. Crop ripeness and readiness for produce is another crucial parameter. Mobile apps can use sensor technology by integrating the UV-A light system and determining their maturity. Computer vision can make it easier by separating fruits according to their levels of readiness before they go to the market.
Farm management includes identifying any looming diseases, preventing them, application of pesticides, and fertilizers, as some of the vital processes. Smartphone applications can enable farmers to manage all these resources efficiently and eventually increase productivity. The most significant advantage farmers avail through mobile apps is that they can record each piece of land data anywhere from their phones. It eliminates the need to keep paper-based records and reports of used fertilizers and pesticides, locations used, types of weeds and diseases, among others.
It enables them to easily record field data and manage resources by maintaining a digital farm journal. Moreover, it also lets them aggregate the geo-data of cultivable land areas that can be immensely helpful to monitor the purpose and make accurate decisions. With speech and image recognition, these processes can collect accurate geographical information for further analysis.
9series aims at providing and developing the solutions that enable farmers to simplify their daily processes like crop management, machinery management, storage, logistics, and surveillance. Our professional solutions allow them to take full authority of their crops and farming practices. We offer various innovative management solutions starting from managing machinery, farm mapping, managing livestock, sensing the soil quality, and logistics. Our advanced cropping system delivers details of each crop, fertilizer, pesticide, and warehouse with integrated ML algorithms.
We also offer dynamic multiple farm management where agriculture companies can access all of their farms from a single platform. These solutions range from managing cultivation, products, and purchase management, which help in bringing a smoothness in productivity. Our solutions also help in estimating the exact quantity of the crops produced, managing purchases related to seeds, crop medicines, fertilizers, and generating customized storage reports.
For the surveillance and delivery of products to the market, we also enable 3D mapping of the crops growing on the farms. With sensors, you can quickly get notifications of any damages and health conditions of the plants on a real-time basis. Our experiences speak for itself in developing CRM, ERP, and portal development for agriculture companies to automate each farming activity and boost overall efficiency.
