Daily satellite data, custom drone imagery and your in-field experience and intuition are colleted
Ackerview crunches the data, learns trends and meaning using AI and Machine Learning and tells you what it saw
You decide what needs to be done under which field conditions
Old smartphones or cheap custom hardware relays instructions that differ per location to workers
Ackerview provides a simple, affordable and effective system to farmers of all scales to deploy location specific job instructions to their working teams. We believe that in the new age of artificial intelligence and satellite imagery available daily decades of human experience needs to be stream lined to get the best out of your farm.
Humans have farmed for millenia, let's use what we've learnt.
Computers can digest the vast amout of data availiable from drones and satellites.
We are excited to find that the available data sources for precision viticulture complement each other and show great potential for targeting location specific shortcomings of vineyards.
In December 2017 Ackerview developed and built a yield monitor for use on a mechanical grape harvester. Once initial difficulties were overcome the yield monitor collected 23 hectares of vineyard yield data in the 2018 harvest. After fine-tuning our data processing algorithm and scaling each vineyard’s measured total yield to its total delivered harvest mass Read more about First samples of high resolution vineyard yield data[…]
On 10 August 2018 the Ackerview precision farming system was used on Lindenhof Farm in Paarl to vary the dosage of nitrogen dominant 4:1:1 fertilizer spread in three peach and nectarine orchards. The farmer, Thomas Babl, marked the parts of the orchards that needed no additional fertilizer in green using the Ackerview web app. The Read more about Variable rate fertilizer spreading use case[…]
In August 2017 Ackerview’s Minimum Viable Product (MVP) was used on a stone fruit farm in Paarl to specify to the working team where to deposit wood chips around the bases of the peach trees and where not to. In the past this variability was not possible to achieve as the working team had no Read more about The Minimum Viable Product’s maiden voyage[…]
