The Dilemma Farmers Face

Limited Connectivity Solutions and High Costs

 

 

Most farms are located in remote locations that are poorly serviced by internet, LTE and other network providers. Large field areas and physical obstructions like crops and canopies further hinder reliable data connections. In addition to high hardware and connectivity costs of traditional systems often erode margins and limit adoption.

Offering a Long-Range, Scalable and Cost-Effective solution for IoT in Agriculture.
Providing low-cost and reliable connectivity for large-scale IoT sensor networks, LorBaer helps farmers  critical monitor crop, climate and livestock data while Dynamic AI decisions are made to maximize yields, reduce waste and enhance sustainability.

Climate

  • Monitor weather conditions in the field to better predict and prepare for adverse weather conditions like heavy rain, frost and drought.

  • Enable on-demand adjustment of HVAC settings in Intelligent greenhouses leveraging dynamic climate analytics to maintain optimal indoor conditions.

Fertilization

Fertilization

  • Monitor salinity, conductivity and other vital soil parameters on a micro-field level.

  • Facilitate field mapping based on soil performance for variable-rate application of fertilizer to reduce waste and optimize yields.

Irrigation Control

  • Align watering activities with dynamic crop demand using soil and/or leaf moisture data to optimize water use.

  • Identify trends and anticipate watering needs through constant analysis of climate and soil data for effective planning of water supply.

Farm Equipment

Equipment Maintenance

  • Oversee operational status of agricultural equipment (e.g. water pumps, tractors, spreaders etc.) and get alerted when abnormalities or pending issues are identified.

  • Facilitate advanced planning of oil and part replacement, and other maintenance activities to avoid equipment downtime.

Cattle

Livestock Reporting

  • Monitor health and behavioral data of livestock to detect illness and feeding issues instantly.

  • Track the location of outdoor cattle and get notified if they are out-of-range to prevent theft attempts.

  • Identify signs of heat to improve insemination practices and fertility rates

Hydroponics

Hydroponics Monitoring

  • Measure water quality, pH, salinity, temperature, dissolved oxygen and other critical parameters at aquaculture farms.

  • Receive notifications when conditions are optimal for feeding or when out-of-threshold events are detected for remedial action.
