Innovation – Internet of Things (IoT)

We believe in innovation.  We have experience working on rural ‘Internet of Things’ solutions to create a connected world where devices and people can connect within a moment’s notice. 

Coming up with AgriTech solutions and creating the next generation of connected devices is a priority area for us to ensure continuous innovation.  Here are examples of projects where we identify how IoT can add value, such as monitoring quality, making working conditions easier and lowering costs.

  1. Using ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) technology to improve slurry management on farms
  2. Early adoption of on-farm ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) sensor networks to alert and notify farmers to improve farm security
