S.M.A.R.T. Farms are:
Sustainable, Monitored, Automated, Resilient, Technology Enabled
The S.M.A.R.T. farm provides a framework on critical capabilities to enable data driven insights and automation of farming activities. These capabilities can enable a set of use cases that help scale organic farming across many farms.
is an agriculture that respects natural resources and does not use pollutants in order not to upset the environmental balance or create dangerous living and working conditions.
You can't manage it if you can't measure it. We need to actively monitor temperature, moisture, ET and plant vigor at the vine, row, block and farm level. This provides the ability to understand the environment that the vines grow in.
Automation of irrigation valves provide a cost saving and resource saving capability to use less water but provide a greater quality by automating how much water per bloc.
With extreme climate events occurring more frequency we are developing a playbook for different future scenarios. These leverage our automation and monitoring capabilities to provide counter measures to severe climate events occurring such as high heat, hale storms, wild fires.
Armed with a modern tool-chain - we can grow crops like never before
