Dünya Executive - - BUSINESS -

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.
