RICE MONITORING SYSTEM
Geoprecision tech has developed a agriculture management system for rice. The system is used to gather information on the ground in real-time and near real time. The information is integrated and evaluated. The final result is for decision and action for improving yield, monitoring crop health, water requirement, solving issues etc.
Monitoring of rice plantation in Crop health, Water, Nutrients etc
The rice plant has a wide array of ‘enemies’ in the field. These include rodents, harmful insects, viruses, diseases, and weeds. Farmers manage weeds through water management and land preparation, by chemical and hand weeding, and in some cases herbicide application. Understanding the interactions among pests, natural enemies, host plants, other organisms, and the environment allows farmers to determine what if any pest management may be necessary.
Some decision has to be made such as avoiding conditions that allow pests to adapt and thrive in a particular ecosystem helps to identify weak links in the pests' life cycle and therefore what factors can be manipulated to manage them. Retaining natural ecosystems such that predators and natural enemies of pests and diseases are kept in abundance can also help keep pest numbers down.
Proper Nutrient Management enables farmers to dynamically adjust fertilizer use, by supplying optimum amounts of nutrients at critical time points in the crop's growth to produce high yields.
