Agriculture of the future-Automation
Well, the system consists out of a vent motorization system and an on-site dashboard that connects with internal and external weather stations. This system records wind speed and direction; rain, temperature; humidity, and Vapour Pressure Deficit (VPD0-this allows the grower to choose the most important factors to their crops on which to base the automation.
According to Chalimov (2021), there are a number of important reasons to start implementing automated systems into your farm such as ensuring the safety of your crops by controlling the environment to produce the best crops possible. This, in turn, can result in better quality produce and increased yields-thereby increasing your profits as well. Automation can also save you time by being able to control various factors of the system simultaneously and cutting down on hours needed to complete tasks manually. The automated systems can also be controlled more accurately which can save on costs such as water and electricity-which is also better for the environment!
First off you enter your unique automation parameters into the AgrilogiQ system which is then able to compare the internal environment with the outside environment. This enables the system to vent the structure in accordance with the grower’s individual requirements. The system has many safety features built in to keep your crops safe such as wind orientation; sun orientation and closure of the structure in the incident of rain. All these systems can be controlled remotely through a website interface ensuring that no matter where you are your crops are as safe as possible.
