FieldMicro launches farming automation platform SmartFarm

FieldMicroFieldMicro has launched a farm control monitoring system SmartFarm, a platform that uses smart technology to make farming simpler and more efficient

This is in line with the company’s ambition to bring the ‘smart revolution’ to the farm, allowing farmers to have unprecedented control of their systems and hardware, all at the press of a button.

“We are proud to introduce FieldMicro, which allows crop and livestock farmers to upgrade their farm and utilise the latest smart technology to enhance their operations to save time and money," said Mitch Brownlie, CEO of FieldMicro.

FieldMicro's SmartFarm is powered by FieldBot, a portable remote-control device that connects to farm equipment/hardware. FieldBots are equipped with a built-in solar panel, a HD camera and sensors that monitor temperature, air pressure, humidity, motion, sound etc. According to the company, the use examples include livestock monitoring and control, controlling farm gates, water troughs, winches, irrigation gates, rain gauges and any other items that are actuated, such as turning a pump on or off.

Additionally, FieldMicro has announced partnership with John Deere to provide real-time data direct to the SmartFarm platform, providing greater insight into the operations and service history of farmers' tractors and equipment. Users will be able to see the location and other live data from compatible John Deere machines in real-time on the SmartFarm platform.
