The Agricultural Sector is changing. While never thought as a tech sector that stereotype is rapidly evolving and Atilze needed an IaaS Cloud provider to launch a brand new IoT service for the agricultural industry in Malaysia, which has struggled as of late with low adoption in the agriculture sector. That is what Atilze specifically hoped to change with their new IoT environment.
One of the main cash crops in Malaysia are chili crop and it requires thorough care which consist of mixing of fertilizers A & B daily. Traditionally, farmers spent a chunk of time to prepare the fertilizers mix manually which creates room for inconsistencies and wastages. This may cause inaccurate values needed for the crops to grow, which directly impact the quality of the yield.
In one of our recent projects, using Atilze Sensor Hub for Smart Fertigation for chili crops plantation in Kuala Langat, and partnering Alibaba Cloud as the cloud provider, the farmers can monitor their fertilization and plant anywhere and anytime. In addition, they can also monitor parameters such as soil EC, soil moisture, pH, temperature & humidity in real-time. By using Atilze’s IoT platform, the farmers get real-time updates and notification whenever there are any unusual events.
By implementing Atilze Sensor Hub for Smart Agriculture on Alibaba Cloud, farmers experience an improvement of yield minimum 20% on an average per season while reducing the usage of fertilizers by 30%, savings of manpower by 8 hours on a daily basis and improvement of income by 40%.
Alibaba Cloud hosting in Malaysia, this reduced the data latency. With competitive pricing compare with other cloud services, it also comes with data clustering features that eliminate the server downtime.
