AVR and Dacom Farm Intelligence Offer Interconnected Field Data
AVR’s data collecting platform, the AVR Connect, has recently seen a significant advancement in collaboration with Dacom Farm Intelligence, allowing for the parcel data to be linked to the machine data, which results in a comprehensive overview, according to AVR representatives.
AVR had already been offering agricultural companies technology for data collection in the form of real time insights into what is going on inside the machine, how it is operating, and how the process can be made more efficient. The objective is to reduce the cultivation costs and contribute to a sustainable food production using targeted recommendations originating from secure links between AVR Connect and the Dacom* Cloudfarm application.
As of now, AVR Connect can easily be used to create a secure link to the Dacom Cloudfarm package (provided that the farmer is subscribed to Dacom Cloudfarm). The AVR machine data can automatically be transferred to Cloudfarm, and the field data can automatically be read in by AVR Connect.
During harvesting, the following data is logged:
- The current fuel consumption
- The yield
- The number of planted potatoes per square meter
- The registered location data and the totals are wirelessly available in AVR Connect.
Using this network, fields can be synchronized between both platforms, and yield and other machine data of the connected AVR harvesters can be forwarded to Dacom (e.g. for visualizing yield cards within Dacom).
When a connection is made, these data are automatically sent to Dacom Cloudfarm.
User benefits of shared data:
- Using the totals, the cultivation document can be completed automatically (e.g. harvest registration including hours, fuel consumption, used machine and total yield).
- This cultivation registration can then be used for reporting, permissions checks (e.g. safety time), or calculating balances.
- User-friendly, offers insight (reporting and costs) and visualizes the differences within the parcel.
- Within Cloudfarm, machine data can be combined with other data sources (such as satellite, contour maps, types of soil) for analysis purposes.
- All relevant data is then converted to clear recommendations.
The package is available as an option on the AVR Puma 3, Puma 4.0 and Ceres 440 or 450.
