Telematics involves precision farming solutions by automating decisions or actions at a distance. The farmer's "smart" machinery would apply seeds and fertilizer at variable rates based on the soil characteristics
Even if we had perfect weather data everywhere all the time, there are many more uncertainties in a lot of the weather-driven agronomic models that attempt to predict crop stage, disease pressure, and crop performance
We've placed an emphasis on re-thinking the approach to boost crop yield using biotechnology. By focusing on identifying bottlenecks in carbon flow to increase the efficiency of photosynthesis, we are identifying new yield trait genes that show promise in our target crops.
The farmer can ill afford having a device that he cannot depend on, is unsuitable for use in sunlight, breaks often or doesn't communicate reliably.
