Precision farming is heading to the big stage as growers, large and small, start moving away from monoculture operations to diversified, results oriented farming practices with a renewed focus on visibility, awareness, and insights. And that takes information, lots of it.
Knowledge is power. AssetLink IoT solutions provide growers with the information they need to easily track local climate and soil conditions, better understand threats posed by pests, and develop growing conditions designed around their needs. Our solar powered IoT sensor interfaces work with any sensor you can imagine and once installed, provide 7-10 years of field to cloud data streaming.
IoT in Agriculture
The AssetPack is a highly versatile equipment tracking and sensor monitoring solution, designed for frequent two-way communication with unpowered assets and sensors. AssetPack interfaces provide growers the information and control they need to proactively manage farming operations of any size or complexity. Available in satellite, cellular, or hybrid options, the solution is fully self-contained, waterproof, dustproof, and ruggedized for use in any agricultural application.
In addition to providing GPS track & trace, the solution can be easily configured to monitor a wide range of metrics via on-board sensor-agnostic analog and digital inputs as well as J1939 engine data monitoring. This makes measuring ongoing conditions — such as soil pH, moisture, temperature, dew point, or light levels — simple and intuitive. The solution also supports seamless cellular and satellite connectivity so that you can easily change reporting behavior or manage remote machinery over the air.
Whether optimizing water usage, preventing parasitic infestations or disease, or planning optimal planting and harvesting times, AssetLink offers the real world solutions for today’s challenges while positioning growers for the knowledge economy of tomorrow.
