Weather data accuracy and soil condition inputs can affect crop productivity to a great extent.
Sarvavid Agri IoT weather risk management system uses Altair SmartCore to log realtime soil and weather data from its sensor kit and send alerts to farmers on the soil water requirement for the crop.
Farmers who have access to such important real-time information can better plan their course of activities beforehand and take corrective or preventive measures in advance thus reducing losses..

Objectives:

  • Monitor and maintain optimum environmental conditions in the open field farms and polyhouses
  • Monitor and maintain sufficient water level in storage tanks and water flow to the sheds in polyhouses
  • Reduce in energy costs
  • Reduce water usage
  • Reduce dependency on manual labour
  • Alert farm owner/manager on breach of thresholds
  • Provide dashboards for analyses and trends of the environmental conditions, soil moisture and water levels (for polyhouses) maintained in the sheds

Features:

  • Monitor and maintain optimum environmental conditions in the open field farms and polyhouses
  • Monitor Air Temperature, Humidity, CO2 level
  • Monitor Soil Moisture (at 3 soil depths for open field units)
  • Monitor Solar Radiance
  • Monitor Water Level in supply tank (for polyhouses)
  • Monitor Water flow to the individual sheds (for polyhouses)
  • Switch on/off cooling fans based on temperature (for polyhouses)
  • Switch on/off exhaust fans based on humidity levels (for polyhouses)
  • Switch on/off water flow to individual sheds (for polyhouses)
  • Measure amount of water used in individual sheds (for polyhouses)
  • All sensor modules connect with the Controller & Gateway Unit using WiFi/Bluetooth
  • Controller & Gateway Unit will communicate with the cloud using 4G GSM/Broadband
