A sensor capable of scanning the farm fields from the sky
It is a system attachable to a drone that takes pictures of crops from the air
The project try to reduce the adverse weather effects on farmers in the region.
Another sensor used in agriculture is one that detects climate.
Kilimo Salama is a project which has been implemented in Kenya, whose purpose is, based on the concept of “safe agriculture”, to reduce the collateral effects of inclement weather over the farming of the region. A connected weather station monitors the fields. Thus, small farmers have easier access to insurance for their harvest through periods of drought or flooding. Thanks to this project, a safe network is implemented while investment in farming is enhanced.
