Borovichi farmer Ivan Geletey can not imagine how today you can work in agriculture, without relying on IT technology.
“Thanks to them, no matter where I am - at home, in Novgorod, on a business trip abroad, I can monitor the condition of the soil, crops, the likelihood of diseases and pests on plantings, the workload of personnel and equipment,” he said in an interview with the Novgorodskie Vedomosti newspaper ...
KASE tractors, which work on the Geletey field, reminded the correspondent of spaceships. Inside - a computer, sophisticated navigation and various auxiliary equipment connected to the GLONASS system. This "filling" allows you not to admit a single piece of untreated land.
Digital technologies are also used in the logistics center where the crop is stored. There, a certain humidity and temperature are automatically maintained there. At the same time, Geletey can control and change parameters from his smartphone.
For the first time in the history of the region, the cultivation of mini-plants was organized in the greenhouse in order to obtain super-super-elite potato seeds. “Everything here is also computerized: every 20 minutes a command comes from the computer, and with the help of special equipment, one thousand of these plants are watered. The computer also monitors that the temperature of the water for irrigation was within 17 degrees, and the air temperature in the greenhouse was at the level of 25-27 degrees, ”writes journalist Vasily Pilyavsky.
