The success of crop farming depends on a variety of factors. To give crops the best chance of thriving, farmers used to manually run seed drills so they could target seed distribution according to those factors. It was effective, but it was also time-consuming and required years of experience.
Today, KWS SAAT SE & Co. KGaA, the world’s fourth largest seed producer, is creating a new smart farming procedure to automate and improve yield analysis, satellite imagery processing and data accessibility, thus providing useful services for farmers for their specific fields and giving seeding recommendations. GEOSYSTEMS developed this open and flexible solution by using Hexagon platforms and products.
