Welcome to the world of Hosachiguru, where technology and agriculture come together in perfect harmony. Picture this: 1000 acres of farmland spread across 20 different farms, each in a unique climatic condition and soil type, cultivating a diverse range of crops at different stages of growth. Managing such complexity may seem like an insurmountable task, but at Hosachiguru, we have embarked on a revolutionary journey powered by IoT (Internet of Things) technology.
Over the past year, we have invested considerable time, resources, and energy to develop a cutting-edge IoT tech platform that enhances our ability to meet the irrigation and fertilization needs of every plant on our farms. The three critical layers of our system work seamlessly together to create a comprehensive solution. Let’s delve into them.
The first layer, the perception layer, is composed of an extensive network of sensors strategically placed throughout our farms. From surface-level sensors to those buried 30 and 60 centimeters (about 1.97 ft) below the soil, we gather crucial data on soil temperature, moisture, wind speed, direction, evapotranspiration losses, and humidity. This wealth of information forms the foundation of our decision-making process.
The second layer, the network layer, employs computers and tablets installed at the farm level. Utilizing low bandwidth, these devices capture data from the sensors and transmit it to the cloud for analysis. This real-time connectivity ensures that we stay up to date with the ever-changing conditions on our farms.
The third layer, the data and artificial intelligence layer, represents the culmination of our expertise gained over a decade of experience. Leveraging the vast amounts of data, we have collected, we have developed sophisticated algorithms that factor in variables such as soil type, plant age, crop type, and stage of the season. By integrating all this information, we can make informed decisions about irrigation and fertilization requirements for optimal plant growth. It’s a complex process that continues to evolve as we refine and enhance our network and data infrastructure.
But our technological advancements don’t stop in the fields. We have also equipped our tractors with sensors, enabling us to simultaneously track and manage their activities across multiple farms. Through advanced route planning and task allocation, we maximize efficiency and ensure that every aspect of farm operations is executed seamlessly.
To facilitate easy access and control, we have developed a user-friendly app that puts all this information at your fingertips. Imagine sitting at one place and getting updates about irrigation, fertilization, and tractor routes with just a few taps on your smartphone.
