    The Ultimate Guide to Irrigation: Leveraging AgTech for Efficient Water Management The Ultimate Guide to Irrigation: Leveraging AgTech for Efficient Water Management

    Smart irrigation systems can save up to 50% of the water used by traditional methods, reducing the reliance on groundwater and decreasing the costs associated with water procurement. Moreover, these systems minimize the need for manual labor and fuel consumption, as they optimize irrigation schedules and reduce the frequency and volume of water application. This not only saves time and labor costs but also lowers fuel expenses involved in operating conventional irrigation systems. Ultimately, these efficiencies translate into increased profit margins for farmers, making smart irrigation a lucrative and environmentally friendly choice in modern agriculture.

    How CropMap Detects Grain, Silage and Second-Corn How CropMap Detects Grain, Silage and Second-Corn

    While grain corn is grown for human consumption or industrial use, silage corn is primarily used as animal feed. First-crop corn is typically sown and harvested once a year, whereas second-crop corn represents a second harvest within the same year. CropMap is a data analysis and management application that relies on a harvest tracking algorithm and is utilized in agricultural fields. Detection algorithms are employed to differentiate between grain and silage corn, as well as to monitor the stages of crop growth and harvest. The CropMap application plays a significant role in optimizing agricultural processes and assisting farmers in making data-based decisions.

    Crop health monitoring entails leveraging various technologies to evaluate crop conditions and identify indications of stress, disease, or other concerns. A crop health monitoring system is built to help farmers identify visible diseases in the crop leaf and monitor the pest populace in the field. The goal of data collection is to limit the disease's spread throughout the field. It stands as a cornerstone for bolstering yields and fostering sustainable agricultural practices while curbing expenses through precise watering and pesticide application management. At Doktar, we are committed to pioneering advancements in agricultural technology and ensuring our products remain at the forefront of innovation.
