Precision agriculture: what is it and where to find it at InterAGRO 2018?

Do you know that 37% of the Earth surface is used for agricultural purposes? Maintaining and increasing of our effectiveness in agriculture is one of the biggest problems for humanity. Why is that?  Because the population keeps growing, and so do its needs.

Along with the growth of population, the food problem related to lack of edible resources is increasing. Extension of sown areas at the expense of cutting forests and drying of water bodies is a mere imitation of solving the problem. The most effective step is to implement modern technologies, which will allow getting maximum yield from a crop from minimum area of a field. At present, this technology is precision agriculture based on geographic information system (GIS). It allows:

  • To make precise measurements of fields;
  • To install autopilots on equipment and machinery;
  • To monitor condition of crops;
  • To monitor vegetation index;
  • To use resources based on monitoring and observation;
  • To stop cultivation of marginal lands;
  • To use systems of differentiated fertilizers application and means of plant protection.

Systems of precision agriculture have been used in Asia and the USA for many years. The key point of the concept is consideration of heterogeneity on one field. To identify this heterogeneity one uses global positioning systems (GPS, GLONASS), special sensors, videos from agro UAVs, photos from satellites, micro lasers for precise chemical analysis of soil. To analyze and process the collected data, special programs for agricultural management based on geographic information system (GIS) are used. The information is used to plan sowing, calculate doses of fertilizers and means of plant protection, needed to be applied, for more precise forecast of yield and calculation of expenses on materials. Precision agriculture requires taking into account local peculiarities of soil (quantitative and qualitative assessment of fertile layer of soil) and climate conditions. In some cases it allows easily finding out local reasons of diseases.

As a result, precision agriculture provides increase in yield, as well as helps to decrease expenses on fertilizers and herbicides, which makes plant and animal products more ecologically clean and healthier. It makes much sense, since the main directions of agriculture in the future will be production of organic and ecologically clean food, as well as environmental conscience and decrease of wastes!

InterAGRO shares these values and organizes an oasis of modern technologies for precision agriculture at the exhibition – IT-Corner. Here you will be able to see and test developments of the leading Ukrainian AgroIT companies and software for them.

International exhibition of agricultural machinery and equipment InterAGRO

International exhibition of agricultural machinery and equipment InterAGRO is the epicenter of innovations in agricultural machinery and equipment.

Major part of the InterAGRO exhibition participants consists of manufacturers of agricultural machinery and equipment, thus making the exhibition even more compliant with the standards of world’s largest agroindustrial exhibitions.

At the exhibition, the latest developments and innovations for the global and national machine building for agricultural sector are represented, as well as agricultural equipment for repair and maintenance, spare parts, precision agriculture and climate technologies, equipment and technologies for crops growing, agricultural chemistry.

Within the frames of the exhibition, a series of business events will be held, the topics of which is formed with respect to the current issues of the agroindustrial complex, taking into account the latest tendencies of the industry development all over the world. Participants of the international conferences, seminars, round tables will be able to orientate themselves in the whirlpool of the novelties of the sector and understand the directions of the industry development.

Among the bright events of the exhibition is the summarizing of the totals and winners awarding ceremony of InterAGRO Innovation Award, the international contest of innovative solutions in agricultural machinery and equipment, which is held in order representatives of agricultural industry could know the best innovative solutions in agricultural machinery and equipment, and enterprises and organizations could have а stimulus for implementation of their innovations into serial production.

In  2018  the international exhibition InterAGRO once again proved its leading position on Ukrainian market, as well as in the world arena. The following facts can confirm it:

  • 18, 000 professional visitors;
  • 19,500 visits
  • 293 exhibitors, including 67 foreign companies;
  • 17 participating countries: Austria, Belarus, China, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, India, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, the USA
  • National Pavilions of Germany and France
  • Collective exposition of China 
  • 30 unique events with participation of the leading foreign and Ukrainian experts in the field of agriculture
  • 30, 000 sq.m of exposition area
