Farm machinery

Farm machinery

Thanks to modern technological applications in machinery such as combines or tractors farmers can monitor and collect information about crops. Sensors measure among other things the level of dampness helping farmers to take decisions like when reap a harvest, fertilise or sow.

Modern tractors

Modern tractors with sensors and navigation systems are developed. Some of them are designed to map crops and make harvest documentation. Sensors also monitor the machine to help avoid malfunctions.

Robots

Robots help people more and more for instance in production or medicine. They also apply in agriculture by achieving faster and higher crops. For example, spray robots limit agrochemical consumption by 90%.

Getting rid of weeds is one of agricultural activity helping to obtain good crops. There are crop protection agents but there are often very chemical. Fortunately, unusual robots equipped with cameras and lasers, with the ability to identify weeds to remove them were created.

An innovative solution is a robot that can collect delicate fruit and nuts. Robots for planting seeds were also created. They have a lot of information enabling precise seed spacing and depth.

To one of the extremely labor-intensive activity is cow milking. When it comes to milk production, automatic milking machines are very useful.

Harvesting potatoes and carrots requires a lot of work from people because we need dig them out of the ground. The machines harvesting potatoes and carrots were developed.

Navigation systems

GPS systems are also used in agriculture. Serve farmers to automatic piloting, positioning and navigating vehicles and automatic machines.

Machines supporting farms are very useful and extremely helpful. However, the big minus is to replace people by machines. Development in this branch leads to losing workplace by millions of people.
