What are the Agriculture Engineering-projects? Give me some ideas.
New projects in agriculture engineeringPosted in: #Gadgets
Because I am biased with IoT, I'd like to suggest precision agriculture type projects.
IoT Agriculture Project Idea: Monitoring environmental condition, control watering and fertigation
Depending on what crops you want to monitor, using sensors and using automated control of water irrigation and fertigation can improve crop yields while saving on labour intensive work. Data can also be collected on a platform to allow farmers to monitor condition of their crops so they do not have to be on site all the time.
You can do a small proof of concept project to detect nutrients of the soil with an EC sensor, temperature sensor and moisture sensor. If specific threshold is reached, then it triggers an action (e.g alert to mobile app or an actuator to release certain amount of water). This can then scale up to actual projects if this sparks your interest more 😀
