Farmwave will Make Your Farm Equipment Smarter
Artificial Intelligence is coming to agriculture, but it may not look the way you think. Craig Ganssle is the Founder and CEO of Alpharetta, Georgia-based Farmwave. He calls their solution an AI-based autonomous measurement tool.
Ganssle… “On combine harvesters, we're measuring harvest loss off the header and in the back area of the machine. On sprayers, as it's going through the field, we can measure nozzle performance, application coverage, disease, pest, plant count, growth stage, and sort of application surface area for the liquid droplet coverage, if you will.”
Ganssle and his team are working with farm equipment manufacturers to mount the tools. His vision is for the equipment to adapt to the measurements in real time, to solve big problems like harvest loss.
Ganssle… “You know, an average 2000 acre farm in say soybeans, with the harvest vision system, taking into account on a bushels per acre of an average of four to six is $78,000 back in their pocket for the year. In 2019 in the United States in corn alone, it was a $1.4 billion problem. We left $1.4 billion worth of corn grain in the field last year. So it's a big deal.”
