  • 108

Precision Growing is a modern agricultural approach that uses smart technology to grow crops more accurately and efficiently. Below you will find a detailed list of the main topics covered in Precision Growing and the benefits compared to traditional farming methods.

I will also introduce the role of Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Computer Vision and IoT in agriculture.

I. Precision Fertilization:

Soil testing and sampling

The topic “Soil Testing and Sampling” plays a very important role in the Precision Fertilization. This method allows farmers to gain a thorough understanding of the properties and condition of the soil. The analysis of soil samples helps to determine nutrient levels, pH and other key parameters.

The data can help you determine exactly what type and amount of fertilizer you need to achieve optimal plant growth and yield. This precision approach not only makes fertilization more economical, but also helps minimize the impact on the environment, resulting in more sustainable farming practices.

Data collection and analysis

The “Data Collection and Analysis” is an essential part of Precision Fertilization in Agriculture. This modern approach allows farmers to know exactly what nutrients their soil and crops need. Using data collected through sensors and tools, they can make smart decisions for optimal fertilizer application, which increases yields and results in more environmentally friendly production.

Plant Nutrient Needs Assessment

The Plant Nutrient Needs Assessment is an essential part of Precision Fertilization, which allows for accurate nutrient supply to plants. Modern technology allows us to understand the needs of plants and soil conditions, so we can determine exactly what fertilizer they need. This increases yields, improves quality and leads to more sustainable farming practices.

Using GPS-controlled fertiliser spreaders

The “Use of GPS Controlled Fertilizer Sprayers” is revolutionizing Precision Fertilization. These modern devices allow fertilizer to be delivered to plants accurately and efficiently. With the help of GPS, we can precisely pinpoint the areas where nutrients are needed, minimizing wastage and maximizing yields. This technology contributes to more sustainable and efficient agricultural production.

Microfertilisation and nutrient optimisation

“Microfertilization and Nutrient Optimization” is a key element of Precision Fertilization. This advanced approach allows small amounts of fertilizer to be applied to crops in a precise and targeted manner. Nutrient optimization allows us to determine exactly what nutrients plants need at specific stages of development. This increases yields, reduces costs and results in greener farming.

II. Precision Planting:

Data-driven seeders

“Data Driven Seeders” are an excitingpart of Precision Seeding. These modern machines use data to automatically set seeding parameters. The data helps to optimize the depth, density and distribution of seed in the field. This ensures optimal development and uniform growth of crops, which increases yields and allows for more efficient farming.

Seed quality and selection

Seed Quality and Selection” plays an important role in Precision Sowing. Quality seed selection allows you to produce uniformly growing crops. Optimal seed size, weight and health ensure good germination and uniform plant population, which contributes to increased yields and better agricultural results.

Optimising seed depth and density

Optimizing Seed Depth and Density means finding the perfect depth at which to plant seeds and the best spacing between them.

This ensures that the plants will germinate and grow properly without being planted too densely or too sparsely. This maximises yields and improves plant quality.

Considering nutrient and water allocation

Taking Nutrient and Water Allocation into account means giving plants the exact amount of nutrients and water they need in a given area. This way we optimise growth, increase yields and minimise resource waste.

GPS technology and mapping during sowing

GPS technology and mapping during seeding means you can accurately track and control tractor movements in the field. This ensures that seeding is even, avoids overlaps and gaps, and makes more efficient use of the land.

III Precision Crop Protection:

Installation of sensors and cameras to detect diseases and pests

Installing sensors and cameras to detect diseases and pests means constantly monitoring the condition of plants and their environment. This helps us to detect potential problems such as diseases or pests in time, so we can react more quickly and in a more targeted way, preventing crop failure and minimising chemical use.

Data analysis to identify problems

Analysing data to identify problems means collecting and interpreting information from the field. This helps you identify crop health, nutrient deficiencies or other challenges. The data can help us make more accurate decisions to react in a timely manner and optimize crop production.

Applying sprayers and spraying techniques

Precision crop protection involves spraying with GPS-guided sprayers.Using precision sprayers and spraying techniques means precisely targeting plants for pest or disease control. This helps to minimise chemical use and environmental impact while protecting plants more effectively. New technologies deliver precise doses of spray to optimise crop protection and yields.

Using automated crop protection systems and drones

The Use of automated crop protection systems and drones means using modern technology to control and protect crops. The systems automatically detect necessary interventions, such as spraying or nutrient replenishment, while drones monitor the area from above, detecting problems and helping to take timely action. This results in more efficient and sustainable crop production, minimising manual labour and production losses.

Selecting varieties resistant to pests and diseases

Selecting pest and disease resistant varieties means choosing crops that have natural defenses against pests. These varieties are less susceptible to diseases and pests, reducing chemical use and increasing crop quality and quantity.

IV. Precision Irrigation:

Monitoring of soil moisture and meteorological data

Soil moisture and meteorological data monitoring means monitoring soil moisture and environmental weather conditions on a continuous basis. This helps to accurately dose water and nutrients to plants, optimising their growth and yield. This data allows us to respond to weather changes in a timely manner, minimising water waste and improving plant health.

Installing and adjusting smart irrigation systems

Installing and adjusting Smart Irrigation Systems means using modern technology to control and optimize the irrigation of your plants. These systems sense soil moisture and weather conditions, then automatically regulate watering at the most appropriate times and amounts. This maximizes water efficiency, increases crop yields and reduces water waste.

Optimize water use and timed irrigation

Timed watering is watering at the most appropriate times to avoid wasting water and ensure optimum moisture levels for plants. This is an effective way to increase yields and make farming more sustainable.

Drip irrigation and other water-saving technologies

Drip irrigation and other water-saving technologies mean precisely targeting and dripping water to the roots of plants. This minimizes water waste by watering only the area and amount needed. This increases efficiency and sustainability in crop production.

Remote control and automation of the irrigation process

Remote control and automation in the irrigation process means that water application and system operation is controlled and regulated remotely. So this allows us to respond flexibly to weather changes and crop needs, optimising irrigation and minimising water wastage.

V. Precision Harvesting:
