From MDN Labs, KYTION is one of our teams that has developed integrated precision farming solutions for greenhouses, micro-farms, and uneven soils. The platforms host a variety of sensors and collect data that allow farmers to predict yields, monitor the health of their crops, and suggest actions.
More specifically, the aerial platform introduces spectral imaging in greenhouses, while the four-legged robot can roam any rough terrain. The collected data is fed to a flow valve that manages the irrigation and fertilization needs of the crop. With the assistance of the tools which are developed in MDN Labs, the producers benefit from the reduction of the inputs of water, chemicals, and fertilizers, from the increase of yields, the improvement of end product’s characteristics, and a better purchase price. The general public benefits from the consumption of agricultural products with a minimal energy footprint.
