Zyter’s smart-agriculture solution offers farmers real-time insights
Farmers are set to gain more intelligent insights into the granular condition of their soil thanks to a new product from smart agriculture vendor Zyter.
The Maryland-based company’s Smart Agriculture solution gathers soil data and atmospheric analysis from IoT sensors beneath the ground.
Information is then processed to provide a virtual view of the farm’s ecosystem, including measurements of the soil’s moisture, solar radiation and even the precise nutrients that enable crops to grow.
Zyter’s new smart agriculture module expands on the IoT sensor network by introducing artificial intelligence into the mix together with automated drone fly-bys for inspecting crop fields.
Over time the AI can learn how to identify the appearance of healthy crops and predict which nutrients would best maximize productivity. Farmers can also set up automated alerts through the platform to learn when soil quality dips below a predefined level.
The new module runs from Zyter’s existing SmartSpaces product and includes support for third-party IoT services from Qualcomm Technologies and more than 400 of Qualcomm’s smart city affiliates.
