Smart agriculture is a new agricultural model that uses modern technology and information technology to improve agricultural production efficiency and sustainable development.
Smart agriculture involves many aspects of technology and applications, providing more advanced and intelligent solutions for agriculture. These include the Internet of Things, big data analysis, drones, remote sensing technology, sensor technology, intelligent control, and more. The application of these technologies can help farmers achieve accurate positioning and monitoring, reasonable and accurate pesticide application, efficient and accurate water and fertilizer management and irrigation, and intelligent agricultural machinery control.

Among them, the application of sensor technology in monitoring and management is mostly reflected in the monitoring of the surrounding environment of crop growth, such as soil, atmosphere, water environment, etc.

Greenhouse intelligent monitoring system

Different plants and different growth stages of different plants have very different requirements on the temperature and humidity in the shed. To increase the yield of vegetables and fruits in the greenhouse, it is necessary to provide suitable growth conditions for the crops, and to keep abreast of the air temperature, humidity, and soil conditions in the shed. Changes in parameters such as temperature and humidity, soil nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, carbon dioxide, and light intensity are intervened and adjusted to achieve scientific, intelligent, and efficient management of agricultural greenhouses.
Upgrade traditional agricultural greenhouses through technologies such as intelligent hardware, Internet of Things, and big data, and build a full-process intelligent and efficient monitoring and control management system, relying on various sensor nodes deployed at agricultural production sites, such as ambient temperature and humidity, carbon dioxide Concentration, light intensity, soil moisture, soil nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, and wireless communication networks realize intelligent perception, intelligent alarm, and intelligent analysis of the agricultural production environment, providing precise planting, visual management, and intelligent decision-making for agricultural production.
The greenhouse intelligent control system can also perform various switching tasks such as automatic spraying, automatic drip irrigation, automatic fertilization, automatic exhaust, and automatic roller shutters according to the collected sensor parameters and strategies.
Farm intelligent monitoring system
In the intelligent monitoring system of the farm, through the connection of IoT sensors, intelligent control cabinets and other equipment, online collection of air temperature and humidity, illuminance, hydrogen sulfide/ammonia concentration, carbon dioxide concentration, etc. Environmental real-time data to achieve online monitoring.
At the same time, it cooperates with the logic control function of the cloud platform to monitor the process flow, link the warmer, fan, feeding machine and other equipment to realize the timing of water and feed feeding for the farm, automatic control of the environment, and historical data management.

  • Carbon dioxide sensor: By detecting the carbon dioxide content in the livestock and poultry house, it is determined whether ventilation is required.
  • Ammonia sensor, hydrogen sulfide sensor: used to detect the ammonia and hydrogen sulfide content in the livestock and poultry house environment to determine whether it is necessary to remove feces and ventilate.  

Aquaculture Intelligent Monitoring System
Affected by factors such as climate change and water pollution, the limitations of traditional aquaculture have become increasingly prominent. Water temperature, diseases, environmental pollution, etc. will all affect the yield and quality of aquaculture products.
With the steady development of the economy and the continuous advancement of science and technology, the informatization and intelligence of the aquaculture industry has become an inevitable trend in the development of the contemporary aquaculture industry. The intelligentization of aquaculture makes the conditions of aquaculture controllable. The aquaculture environment is no longer restricted by the weather. A series of important influencing factors such as water temperature, dissolved oxygen, PH value, ammonia nitrogen content, etc. of the aquaculture water body have become controllable.

Smart agriculture is the fundamental way out of agriculture, and it is also an industry vigorously developed by the country. With the continuous development of Internet of Things technology, data storage, comprehensive perception, data cloud and other methods have further expanded the transmission network of smart agriculture, and the Internet + smart agriculture model continues to Emerging, smart agriculture is also glowing with new power.
