Future Farming

VAIS FarmGATE is the most comprehensive all-in-one digital ag platform in the market with unprecedented capabilities and innovative features, making the vision of Agriculture 4.0 closer than ever. It integrates VAIS suite of products (ScoutROBO, CropROBO and IrrigationROBO) covering the full spectrum of services needed for AI-powered precision agriculture (anomaly, irrigation, biotic/abiotic stresses, yield prediction, etc.). FarmGATE also offers novel in-field scouting guidance and integration with IoT field sensors. It comes in 2 versions: mobile/handheld version for field operations and web-based desktop version for reporting and visualization, both enabled by a scalable cloud architecture back end that can handle millions of subscribers while keeping operational costs low. Below is a selected list of the features provided by FarmGATE which is provided to major growers and agricultural businesses based on subscriptions.

Consolidated Management

  • Centralized farm, field and sensor management and monitoring
  • On-the-fly generation and display of aggregated/detailed farm/field statistics
  • Simple interface, innovative visualizations and automatic report generation
  • Enhanced operations through two versions: in-field mobile version and desktop version
  • Integrates multi-modal data from ground sensors and satellites for accurate decisions
  • High-frequency updates using free and commercial satellite constellations, in-field sensors (if available) and powerful cloud architecture
  • A ubiquitous set of dynamic map layers that cover all crop management requirements

Planning and Prescriptions

  • Enables AI-powered crop planning that reduces cost and increases yield
  • Automates the planning process and removes the need to examine huge amounts of historical data and thousands of images
  • Uses VAIS innovative Dynamic Variable Rate Application (DVRA) technology to optimize agricultural inputs
  • Generates prescriptive ag field map zones with optimal fertilization, crop rotation, seeding and pesticide spraying strategies
  • Recommends protocols to alleviate the impact of unexpected rapid spread of biotic agents or sudden weather changes
  • Farm/Field data with all inputs and decisions are saved on the cloud for continuous follow-up and enhanced future recommendations

Monitoring and Alerts

  • Automatic ag field monitoring to detect trends before they occur and predict potential scenarios that may impact crop growth targets and yield requirements
  • Generates alerts related to stresses, growth, yield, nutrients and irrigation issues
  • Enables multi-granular change detection and timely intervention to save crops and boost profits
  • Continuous scheduling of needed amounts and types of pesticides and fertilizers
  • Continuously monitors water levels and computes irrigation requirements to provide region-based optimal micro irrigation scheduling
  • Exploits meteorological data and acts as an Early Warning System (EWS) against sporadic weather conditions
  • Regular personalized recommendations with high temporal and spatial resolutions

Innovative Scouting

  • Enables both manual scouting and AI-guided scouting
  • Automated scouting plan generation and follow up
  • In-situ detection and diagnosis of plant stresses
  • GPS guidance and AR-based localization
  • Interactive precision field preparations (straight lines, demarcation and zoning)
  • Employs ground-level sensing technologies (LiDAR, depth sensors) for enhanced yield estimation
  • Decreases the need for expert scouts and reduces scouting costs
  • Offers treatment recommendations and follow up
  • Streamlined field operations (multi-modal data capturing, geotagging, cloud upload, etc.)
