Measurement is part of a farmer's DNA. It improves plant yields, herd health, resource conservation and impacts the bottom line - from ensuring livestock reach their peak for maximum prices at auction to guarding against overgrazed pastures.
"Smart farming" is an important part of the answer to this existential question: Extremely high efficiency in food production through the targeted use of the latest technology, computer-supported and - where possible - fully automatic. Seeds are individually and precisely placed; fruits carefully picked by mechanical grippers; fertilizers and plant protection products applied in small doses and in a targeted manner. These operations require a large number of small electric motors that are both robust and powerful.
