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.5 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.3 votes
Farmbeats for small GreenHouse - Urban Farming.
Can you create a dashboard to manage small GreenHouse with sensors coming from different low cost sensors : Seeed; Atlas-Scientific or other recommended by Farmbeats team ?
How can we manage also using a Farmbeats dashboard : LED lamps, irrigation water pumps , nutriments distributor ...
many requests on my desk for Urban Farming but those projects don't have developers inside ...2 votes
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.2 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
Would love to see some of the Azure Services running FarmBeats avaialble as IoT Edge devices that can be ran on Azure Stack Edge. I could see some valid use cases for this now that the newer Azure Stack Edges are being released and the availablity of clustering and Kubernetes.1 vote
