Precision crop management
Nitrogen and water availability are the two main limiting factors in wheat production. By utilizing sensor data embedded in a low-power, long-range network infrastructure and computer modelling for precision crop management, farmers can greatly improve the efficiency of nitrogen and water use in wheat production. This use-case demonstrates how farming based on digital technologies can help farmers to reduce the environmental footprint of wheat production, improve their working environment, and save costs through a more efficient use of nitrogen and water.
