IoT in Agriculture: How Harvest Monitoring is Maximizing Crop Value and Productivity

Our latest case study takes a closer look at how ORBCOMM IoT technology supports agriculture company Wiagro in increasing productivity for their customers, by ensuring stored crops remain at their best.

“ORBCOMM’s technology, combined with the expertise of their field application engineers, helped us deliver a solution on time that exceeded customer expectations.” – Martin Codasco, Company Director, Wiagro.

ORBCOMM partnered with Wiagro to deliver maximum ROI for their customer. The company wanted to store their soybean crop and sell when market conditions were most favorable. The grain required constant monitoring to ensure its quality and that it would be ready to sell when the time was right.

Wiagro worked with ORBCOMM satellite terminals to deliver temperature, humidity, and C02 monitoring. Utilizing satellite technology was vital since the silos were in an area without cellular service.

This is just one example of how IoT is improving agricultural operations. Smart agriculture solutions are using IoT Technology in many ways. From minimizing plant loss through pest, disease and plant health tracking, to monitoring rainfall and soil moisture to ensure optimum growing conditions, the future looks bright for IoT and Smart Agriculture.
