AgriEdge is a platform of services in precision agriculture that offers user-friendly solutions to the farmers, especially the smallholders ones, in order to improve their profitability. We rely on the use of data collected via sensors, satellite images or drone images that we valuate through the use of algorithmic models and agronomic knowledge in order to give recommendations to farmers, via a mobile application, to rationalize costs of the agricultural inputs.
4 services are being developed thus far :
- Reasoned fertilization, where we use remote sensing to estimate the actual Nitrogen concentration in crops leaves, and give the farmer recommendations about the nitrogen fertilization. This service allows farmers to optimize the quantity of fertilizers to use
- Soil analysis by using hyperspectral satellite images (under development). This service allows farmers to optimize the quantity of fertilizers to use and identify the best crop for their soils
- Precision irrigation service, that relies on the use of sensors, a model, and a mobile application to inform the farmer about the optimal place, time and duration of irrigation.
- Plant disease identification, through which a farmer can recognize the diseases his crops suffer from, simply by taking a photo with his smartphone. This service also permits the prevention of some diseases by sending notifications to the farmers once a disease is likely to develop in their field.
