What is it and how it works
Its name is Agricolus Essential: it is an online platform that allows farmers to successfully manage their fields, recording information useful to understand the development of crops and the parameters that influence agricultural production: soil analysis, weather conditions, plant pathologies and more. After registering the account, a dashboard appears. By filling in the required data, it is possible to monitor crops every day thanks to satellite data, geolocation, calculation systems and weather forecasts.
There are also advanced features such as "Imagery" and "Field Imagery": they allow real-time monitoring of fields vigor and water stress. Farmers can fertilize or irrigate only where and when it is needed, calibrate the use of plant protection products and distribute valuable resources without waste.
Efficient and simple
Agricolus Essential Free is free up to 10 hectares of cultivable field. An important tool for those who need to constantly monitor the development of crops. The video tutorial on the website shows how each of the 9 features work: Fields, Dashboard, Issues & Crop Damages, Soil Analysis, Weather Forecasts, Imagery, Field Imagery, Help Desk.
From April new and more sophisticated versions will come: "Agricolus Essential," "Agricolus Pro" and "Agricolus Enterprise" will require a paid upgrade.
Antonio Natale, COO of Agricolus, says: “A platform for the farmers of the future, increasingly smart and technological, dissatisfied with solutions that are too complex and inaccessible. Thanks to a ready-to-use interface, we provide a strategic decision support, from tractor to device, from satellite to field.
