On April 18, 2016, Challenge Advisory announced a project partnership with Phytech, an agri-tech organisation that produce wireless farming sensors, who will be attending Sustainable Intensification 2016 this year.
Phytech are regarded as the pioneer of IIoT solutions to the agricultural market. One of the most important aspects of IIoT is the real-time monitoring of data, and this is where Phytech have forged their unique selling point.
Based in Kibbutz Yad Mordechai in Israel, Phytech provides plant monitoring systems for farmers, primarily, sensors placed on plants that give the farmer more information on how to better care for their crops. Its patented phytomonitoring technology measures plant growth rates and daily contractions, along with soil and climate conditions, to provide meaningful alerts for farmers to better understand plant needs and help with day to day decisions.
Commenting on Phytech’s involvement, head of Challenge Advisory’s Agri-business, Dr. Aubrey Longmore said: “The world of in-plant sensors is fresh, with high potential, and could have a substantial effect on the successful development of plant monitoring, which in turn will revolutionise the management of inputs and irrigation in the agricultural sector. Phytech have a proven track record in promoting effective decision making in the agriculture sector, and we welcome them to Sustainable Intensification 2016, wishing them great success in implementing their solutions in Brazil.”
Phytech hitch the technology edge to the mission of improving the agricultural practice by constantly connecting growers to their plants.
