Rugged Tablet PC and Agriculture Crop Management

Rugged Tablet PC and Agriculture Crop Management

 

Successful crop management is a complex blend of the right horticultural expertise soil conditions fertilizers and irrigation methods. The use of mobile data solutions in agriculture is increasing. As mAgriculture grows farmers and agricultural specialists rely more on mobile devices to calculate and store information required in the office and in the field. When equipped with the proper features rugged tablet computers can make the job of crop management easier and more cost-effective and ultimately help farmers maximize their yield. A situation true in every farming region.

Typical uses:

Rugged Tablet PC and Agriculture Crop ManagementSoil Sampling: Soil samples determine the density of nutrients the presence of harmful toxins and the ability of water and soil to permeate to the roots of crops. Farmers and field personnel can gather soil samples and log pertinent information into rugged tablet PCs on the spot without having to scribble handwritten notes for later data entry. Results can be integrated with existing databases allowing for a complete compilation of soil information throughout an entire region.

Diseases: The spread of disease can devastate an entire crop. Rugged PC data systems allow for rapid analyses of past disease outcroppings, while revealing how much of a given field was impacted by a current blight.

Mapping: Mapping a given stretch of land identifies countless issues important to crop management such as:

  • Prevalence of weeds in specific areas
  • Patterns of runoff and water pooling
  • Effects of weather on the crop yield.

Rugged tablet PCs allow for easy on-site data entry permitting quick creation of viable maps and instant map sharing with relevant team members.

Harvest Data: A rugged computer system can quickly integrate important data from a harvest such as yield of hybrid crops versus earlier strains the effectiveness of new fertilizers and the ability of fallow soil to support crops. After assisting with data analysis a rugged tablet PC will allow multiple people to collaborate on data without losing track of critical information.

Equipment used in the field on a daily basis must be tough and come with accessories that make the device easy to use. Crop management may involve taking soil samples in the winter, when temperatures plunge well below zero or checking water filtration data in the middle of a raging thunderstorm. Mobile devices are often dropped and may be subject to a range of vibrations and unexpected impacts. A high-performance tablet PC need to endure each of these rigors while functioning for hours ensuring that users have access to them at all times.

The two key points for using a Rugged Tablet PC in Agriculture is Durability and the ability to process data in a manner that does not add time and complexity to the process. Try one Free for 10 days and find out how one could help you.

So what are the key benefits of a rugged tablet pc in agriculture ? Most importantly our products all utilise Windows 7 Professional so can operate your standard desktop apps and web browser sessions outside all day. This enables staff to access and record relevant information in the field eliminating the need for paper based capture of data which then has to be re-keyed into another system.

Our most popular product in the sector is the T7000. This unit is IP65 and built for the harsh environments of the agriculture industry. T7000 is designed for durability comes with an outdoor readable screen Bluetooth GPS Wi-Fi and 3G.  The unit will withstand the harshest environments including dust, water, rain extreme temperatures and repeated drops.

We also have the accessories to make your Rugged Tablet PC even more productive.

  • Snap on QWERTY keyboard.
  • Carry Case.
  • Desk and Vehicle Docks.
  • High Capacity Batteries.

In our experience there are a number of key agriculture operations where a device like this can help:

  • Track animals using RFID and bar code scanning – Watch the Video
  • Monitor veterinary care.
  • Control water irrigation flow.
  • Monitor Seed Trials.
  • Pin-point the application of fertilizer.
  • Manure management.
  • Track growing conditions.
  • GPS tracking of agriculture vehicles.

One dairy in the US was using RFID tags for cattle tracking but the devices were proving less than satisfactory. This is where MobileDemand came in and provided the farm with a unit that had superior power and flexibility. Read the Box Canyon Dairy case study

We can also build an agriculture application for you to go on your rugged tablet pc. Check out these sample thin client Apps that you can view on your web browser on a smart phone tablet or desktop.

Optimising labour and resources is as important as in any other industry. Key point here is that if the device is to be used literally in the field the unit must be optimised for that enviroment.
