Given the large areas and relatively shallow soil depths associated with agriculture, the industry standard has long been two-dimensional analysis. However, over the past decades many of C Tech’s customers have discovered the advantages of analyzing and understanding soil properties on a true 3D volumetric basis. Nutrient concentrations, plant available water and stratigraphy are examples of data which are best addressed on a volumetric basis.
Common applications in the agriculture industries include cold chain monitoring, quality assurance, monitoring pest control effectiveness, temperature and humidity profiling crops, wine growing, and many more. We supply the suppliers with the most reliable selection of temperature and humidity data loggers anywhere.
Many states have governmental departments with diverse responsibilities in regulatory monitoring such as animal health, weights and measures, gas and oil inspection, seed and fertilizer inspection, feed analysis, crop and livestock statistics, monitoring agricultural environmental issues, as well as research and development. The key to success is a data management system powerful enough to handle all the data measured, reported and analyzed, and flexible enough to match the workflows, regulations, and rules...

Birds are naturally drawn to food supplies in agricultural areas, transmitting diseases and damaging crops. Fruits, vegetables and newly-seeded and emergent crops provide an all-you-can-eat feast for birds if unchecked. Birds typically eat their body weight in food every day causing damage to crops and food storage in barns ranging from 5-50% or more!
Globally, this problem causes billions of euros of damage each year. Effective bird control is essential and farmers do anything to keep birds away from their...

Fisheries and lake sciences challenge the abilities of traditional software tools. Virtually everything of interest lies beneath the surface. This is a 3D world with complex issues that affect the life in these water bodies and all life on Earth. C Tech’s EVS, MVS, and EnterVol software provide all the power and flexibility required to analyze and model this complex data. Our software is used around the world to assess complex issues such as global warming’s impact on lake health and species survivabili...
Our solutions give growers greater control and increased flexibility through the provision of precise real time data stored within the system. This allows for irrigation and fertigation decisions to be made instantaneously. Incorporating Weather Data and Soil Moisture Data into the real time irrigation system means that water is only applied when it is required and no more than necessary because the sensors are in place giving real time feedback from the field. WiSA systems are in use across numerous crop types...
Using wireless sensor networks within the agricultural industry is increasingly common, as it provides many benefits to the farmer, impacting both the quality of the crops and the overall operating costs. WSN address the traditional monitoring problems related to oudoor areas, by removing the need of cables and of power sources in locations where no infrastructure is available. WSN are also specially suitable for temporary or problem-solving deployments, and to gather more numerous and more consistent data.
Why managing company information is important
Managing your horticultural company demands insight into various processes. For the cultivation of your crop, you collect information about the greenhouse climate and water and energy use. In addition, you als to deal with data about labor productivity, costs, inventory and planning – among other things. Good control of production and quality, along with the management of costs and yields are essential for your company profit. This means that all the information from...
An easy-to-use e.Cognition ruleset to fully measure tree parameters.
This ruleset has been developed and applied during the course of various projects with a large German State Forest Administration and other private forest owners. It is designed to create a polygon shapefile representing single tree crowns. It can process all types of forest stands, including very young and mature stands simultaneously. During the processing, a stand is divided into homogeneous groups based on tree height. Each group is then...
The 3D ForestGIS Application is a web based system with photogrammetrically processed 3D tree and tree models. You can use the System to precisely asess the wood volume, map the forest structure, include a variety of external geodata, query, print and share the maps with other Internet devices (PC, Laptop, Smartphone, Tablet).

Tomato is one of the most spreaded agricultural products all around the world and even of higher economic value. Its demand is continuously increasing and with it, the crop, production and trade. The world production is of 85 millions of tons (FAO 2007) and the countries with higher productions are China, Mexico, United States, Turkey, Spain, Italy and Egypt. Continentally, according to FAO data, Asia participates with no more than 50%, followed by America with a 20%, Europe 15% and the rest comes from Oceania...
Both traditional fisheries and the aquaculture industry face challenges that call for efficient bird control. Despite efforts to reduce seabird mortality, thousands of albatrosses and other seabirds die every year as a result of bycatch in fisheries. In the fast growing aquaculture industry great amounts of animal life in one area like shellfish, crustaceans and fish will eventually attract predatory birds.
In collaboration with SaveWave, Bird Control Group developed an innovative and highly specialized laser...
Aerial surveys have become an integral part of forestland management, in large part replacing extensive field surveys. With current digital mapping capabilities, acquiring fast, accurate imagery is now not only essential, but also cost effective. Whether you need data for stand updating, depletion mapping or defoliation and damage assessment, you face the challenge of choosing the best technology and service for your investment.
To accommodate your forestry business requirements, the GeoVantage approach makes...
