With the growth of the global population and changes in the consumption habits of fruits and vegetables, it has brought great pressure on agricultural cultivation. This change has also promoted higher moral efficiency in the agricultural industry from production and cultivation to the preservation of fruits and vegetables, and also promoted the more efficient use of agriculture A precious resource like freshwater. A large amount of fresh water in the world is used for agriculture, but with the gradual strengthening of the greenhouse effect, climate change will be a major factor affecting the increase of fresh water supply.
We will explore the application of the low-power IoT temperature and humidity monitoring system in the agricultural field, and use several typical cases to show how the low-power IoT temperature and humidity monitoring system can improve the efficiency of agricultural production and reduce the waste rate of agricultural production.
1. Protection of greenhouse water sources:
An effective way to save water is to use advanced imported irrigation systems for intelligent irrigation-changing the spatial and temporal distribution of water. In the intelligent irrigation system , we need a soil moisture sensor system. However, since farmland is widely distributed in the region, wide-area communication technology is necessary to realize intelligent irrigation. A small humidity sensor with a wide-area narrow-band RF communication module. This module supports 20 years of battery life, and can directly communicate with a central node several kilometers away. It can remotely control the electromagnetic valve of the water flow, which can achieve the goal of irrigation management and intelligent. To regulate water supply and demand.
2. Reduce the deterioration of fruits and vegetables during transportation:
During the transportation of fruits and vegetables, there are many direct or indirect reasons that cause a large number of fruits and vegetables to not reach your market or table. The main reason is that fresh fruits and vegetables are not properly handled during transportation to all parts of the country after picking. If a low-power temperature and humidity monitoring system is added to the cold chain transportation to monitor the temperature and humidity environment in fruit and vegetable transportation, the damage rate of vegetables is reduced It can play an important role.
3. Pest control in vegetable greenhouses:
In order to effectively obtain healthy fruits and vegetables, an important thing is to control the environment of pests and diseases, such as rodents and pests. A networked mousetrap may sound like a joke, but in fact, it can provide effective management methods for monitoring and maintaining crops and greatly reduce costs. Imagine a scenario: the farmer outsources the mousetrap operation and pays the operator a monthly fee to maintain a farmland environment free of rodents; and the mousetrap operator needs special personnel to regularly check the equipment to ensure that the mousetrap is normal run.
4. Milk production process:
Today, the demand for milk is quite large. The number of cattle in the world will exceed the 1 billion head mark, and beef and milk will be continuously supplied. However, proper fertilization timing for dairy cows is critical to the effective supply of beef and milk, and missed timing may lose at least one month of production (possibly more than 8% of annual production). When the herd enters conception, they are more active and exercise more than usual, and these changes can be tracked by an accelerometer. During the growth of a cow, a dairy farm can be equipped with a low-power IoT temperature and humidity monitoring system to monitor the environment in which the cow grows. For each cow, a low-power wide-area, narrow-band sensor can be equipped with a return on investment. The return comes from increased production from livestock. Similar sensors can also monitor other important signals for animals, especially capturing early information about livestock diseases, helping herders to improve animal health.
The low-power IoT temperature and humidity monitoring system has played its full role in agriculture, animal husbandry , forestry and other industries, and it can increasingly help agricultural growers increase production and reduce costs.
