Industries / Precision Agriculture
Precision Agriculture is evolving, embracing innovative solutions and modern technologies.
Modern machinery uses thousands of sensors that collect detailed information about the state of the machine, the environment in which they operate (air and soil), as well as plant growth and development. Injecting such information into the algorithms behind decision support systems can significantly improve machine accuracy for a higher-quality and abundant harvest. This and many more benefits make precision agriculture an area full of opportunities.
However, accessing this valuable and sensitive proprietary information is currently cumbersome. One of the most critical concerns that prevent data sharing is losing control of valuable business assets: control over data. As a result, decision support systems are mostly missing in the agricultural domain, so even the data that is actually gathered and available is currently insufficiently used.
Agricultural machinery sensitive data can be processed in a fully encrypted environment.
Sharing data always carries the risk of losing privacy, unless it is done in a safe environment. This applies to precision farming as well. The solution lies in scope-limited data collaboration where secrecy is protected, like the Confidential Cloud platform by Canary Bit.
