The explosion of Big Data for Precision Farming is due to the extended use of Internet of Things and agro-environmental sensors. The management of agronomic and environmental Big Data plays an increasingly important role in farm management. Analysing satellite imagery, the farmer can understand which area of his field is growing more than others or which one suffers from drought. In this way he can decide how to intervene, in a timely and precise manner. Moreover, laboratory analysis performed on soil samples give indications about the nature of the terrain, its fertility and the quality of the final product.
The Big Data represent a unique opportunity to understand better the behaviour of cultivations. The difficulty is being able to manage and analyse them in order to provide simple and effective information to farmers.
OMICAFARM collects and analyses automatically large amounts of data from different data sources: satellites, agro-environmental sensors, analysis of laboratory and on-field measurements. All these data are processed without any user intervention, taking into account the latest scientific research in agronomy and remote sensing. You do not need to be computer experts to use OMICAFARM.
For this reason OMICAFARM is a unique tool of its kind and puts the farmer in a position to do more specific actions to maximize the yield, optimizing resources and reducing costs.
