Vultus makes precision farming tools using satellite data. With these tools, farmers can reduce their nitrogen fertilizer use by up to 1/3rd and increase their crop yields. They can also download precision variable-rate nitrogen prescriptions, straight from our satellites to their tractors.
Please look into partnering with this excellent company.4 votes
I've attempted to follow the Getting Started flow (https://aka.ms/FarmBeatsMarketplace) to deploy FarmBeats resources in Azure. The deployment seems to immediately succeed, though no resources are actually deployed2 votes
I recently started deploying low cost soil moisture sensors on our farm in South Africa (Pecan orchards) found the Ecowitt WH51 on Amazon for ~$15 per sensor. (8 x sensors can connect to each of Ecowitt GW1000 Wifi Gateway which is ~$30)
The gateway can be configured to send data to a custom server "talking" Wundergroud protocol.
Would be really great if the Ecowitt moisture monitoring data can somehow be fed into FarmBeats.
Having 8 x moisture sensor monitoring points, within a 120 meter radius, for ~$150 feeding into FarmBeats would be really great.1 vote
Many devices like MXchip, ESP2866, Raspberry etc. can be added to Azure. By providing manuals/scripts to add these to farmbeats it is easy to demonstrate how it works based on cheap demo-type hardware.
My MXchip communicates with Azure already but is impossible for me to find how to ingest the data into Farmbeats.
Most customers and resellers do not want to invest in "supported hardware" just to see how it works.1 vote
