Spraying, Harvesting, and Cultural Practices
Yesterday, we reported on how technologies like that offered by FieldIn are seeking to help farmers improve operational efficiency. But where do they see opportunities for improvement? The first, says CEO Boaz Bachar, is in the area of spraying.
Bachar… “Our current product is divided into three main solutions. First of all around spraying. So cover all herbicide and pesticide spraying in the field and the task around them, a to Z for monitoring, execution, or analysis.”
Bachar says harvesting is another area where time and money could be saved.
Bachar… “So many mechanical harvesting of nuts and grapes that basically manage the entire, the day to day and the real time of the harvesting. And our third model is the cultural practices, which is basically all the tasks that are not spraying or harvesting: mowing, edging shredding and other tasks that are happening. Monitoring with ATVs. So we are basically aiming to cover all mechanical and cultural practitioners happening in the field.”
FieldIn’s technology focuses primarily on specialty crops.
