Turkish agriculture to be managed with smartphones with Bosch’s new technology
With urbanization on the rise and cultivated land declining, Turkey must use its agricultural land and water resources more efficiently. New technology from Bosch will help farmers manage their fields remotely through smart phones, using censor technology. “With these censors, farmers from on any location in the world will be able to check their farms and take measures of frost, temperature, irrigation and plant diseases,” Young said. “We will start this application in Turkey this year. The Dardanelles may be the pilot region. We may start simultaneously on some crop groups.” The technology seeks to help farmers boost harvests and save time. Turkish apiarists will soon enjoy a similar convenience when Bosch makes software available for beekeeping. To demonstrate the Deepfield Robotics application, Young connected with a strawberry farm in Germany through on his phone in real-time during the event to check the state of the crop.
