Farm/IT Resource Optimization in Agriculture
Agriculture provides us with safe and sufficient food but it has never before been subject to such rapid environmental and socio-economic changes. The dynamics of these changes and threats call for new approaches and innovative technologies to efficiently support decision-makers in the agricultural sector.
Farm/IT is a software platform that helps its users recognise and optimise the interacting impacts of management practices and can be used with any current Internet browser.
Farm/IT takes no decisions from its users. Instead it organises the multitude of data available from various sources to provide a sound basis for fast and efficient decision making in farming systems.
Farm/IT integrates data from a wide range of sources to enable accurate simulation of farming systems. Default values of data required for simulation analyses are provided by Farm/IT. These data are either pre-defined in Farm/IT or are obtained in real time from available databases and sensors. Users can choose the default values or decide to enter their own data.
With Farm/IT, users can modify the data according to their needs and requirements. This feature allows Farm/IT to efficiently support both beginners and experts in their decision-making process.
Farm/IT integrates data from a wide range of sources to enable the most accurate simulations possible. These are either already predefined in Farm/IT or are obtained in real time from current databases and from sensors. Farm/IT is characterized by the fact that all data can be defined on request of the user. In this way, Farm/IT can efficiently support both newcomers and experts in their work.
Farm / IT easily manages and visualizes all data relevant to the user. Only the data that is really necessary for optimal support of the user's work is displayed. The intuitive user interface allows for quick work and provides needed data at the right time.
Farm/IT supports the actors in the interactive planning and simulation of agricultural scenarios, taking into account influencing factors, dependencies and interactions such as weather, climate, soil conditions, growth models, fertilization and crop rotation.
Farm/IT enables the implementation of individual simulations and forecasts. For example, the yield simulation for important crops can be performed. By comparing it with current satellite and sensor data during the season, model predictions can be continually refined and a significant improvement in predictive accuracy can be achieved.
Farm / IT shows users the impact of interventions or unforeseen events (such as weather or pest risks) on individual crops, the entire crop plan, the farm or even the entire municipality.
