Precision or site-specific farming involves applying fertilizer, pesticides and other inputs only where they are needed. This can be done using InciMat.
Precision soil sampling, data collection, and data analysis, enable localized variation of chemical applications and planting density to suit specific areas of the field.
Accurate field navigation minimizes redundant applications and skipped areas, and enables maximum ground coverage in the shortest possible time.
Accurately monitored yield data enables future site-specific field preparation.
Elimination of the need for human “flaggers” increases spray efficiency and minimizes over-spray.
InciMat ability to work through low visibility field conditions such as rain, dust, fog and darkness increases productivity.
GPS-guided equipment is often used for variable rate application of fertilizer or pesticides.
A GPS system on a combine with a yield monitor can be used to develop an on-the-go yield map or can be used to map weed locations from the combine when harvesting.
Mounted in an airplane, GPS can be used to guide aerial spraying operations.
GPS can be used to locate weed, insect or diseases infestations and monitor their spread.
A field map can be created using GPS to record the coordinates of field borders, fence lines, canals, pipelines, and point locations such as wells, buildings, and landscape features.
Crop damage from hail or drought, and riparian areas or wetlands could be mapped using GPS.
2) Surveying & Mapping
GPS-based data collection is much faster than conventional surveying and mapping techniques, reducing the amount of equipment and labor required. A single surveyor can now accomplish in one day what once took entire team weeks to do.
InciMat helps in accurate positioning of physical features that can be used in maps and models.
Faster delivery of geographic information needed by decision makers using InciMat.
Centimeter-level surveying results in real-time using InciMat.
Unlike conventional techniques, GPS surveying is not bound by constraints such as line-of-sight visibility between survey stations. The stations can be deployed at greater distances from each other and can operate anywhere with a good view of the sky, rather than being confined to remote hilltops as previously required.
