In the world today, 80% of global food supply is provided by small stakeholder farmers in a 6 trillion dollar food industry.
Smallholder farmers are unable to leverage on market opportunities and generally suffer from lower economic returns. Unable to reinvest in sustainable and safe farming practices, they remain entrenched in a cyclical loop which further alienates them from market access.
CROWDFARMX'S MISSION IS TO EMPOWER SMALLHOLDER FARMERS WITH THE CAPACITY TO PRODUCE HIGH YIELDING SAFE FOOD AND LIFT THEM OUT OF POVERTY
The CrowdFarmX Platform aims to enable farms of all sizes to have direct access to the best-practice planting protocols, and the capability to monitor and control their farms to maximize food safety and production.
REGULAR INSPECTION OF CROPS IS IMPORTANT TO MAKING THE RIGHT AGRONOMIC DECISIONS
With large scale agriculture, manual inspection becomes impractical and labor intensive. CrowdFarmX leverages on IoT with aerial inspection and analysis so that agronomists and farmers can minimize resources and optimize yields.
CROWDFARMX FARM TECHNOLOGY
CrowdFarmX Singapore Food Cradle features a high-tech greenhouse, automated seeding line, plant nursery, post-harvest packing facilities and cold storage. It is now home to 20 farm technologists, researchers and agronomists.
A CrowdFarmX food cradle is the key success factor towards the transformation of farms, serving as the physical shared services hub that gives farmers the technological and logistical support they require.
End-to-End Demand To Supply Management
The CrowdFarmX platform will be powered by smart contracts utilising blockchain technology, and is the central portal that facilitates multi-party transactions, knowledge sharing, verification processes and community activities.
Open API to ERP Integration
The CrowdFarmX Platform with its highly scalable cloud-based services like the Intelligent Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and the Cloud Platform Integration (CPI), leverages the capability of cloud integration with open standard Application Programming Interface (API) and seamless connectivity to AWS and Electronic Document Exchange (EDI) with key stakeholder business partners in the supply chain.
Cloud-Based Sensors and Systems
CrowdFarmX partners with sensor and hardware manufacturers that integrate into the platform. CrowdFarmX is also open and ready to integrate with any third-party equipment and sensors.
CrowdFarmX seeks to automate the process of delivering the precise amount of nutrients and water to the plant at the right time using the best-in-class dosing systems.
Farm Irrigation Monitoring and Control Application
This IoT powered system controls 44 zones of irrigation at CrowdFarmX's Singapore Food Cradle. This system is the key driver in ensuring consistently smooth production of up to 2000 packs of fresh, quality vegetables daily.
Geographic Information System (GIS) Application
CrowdFarmX's GIS application enables geo-tagging of all farms, water assets and customer locations. This application enables optimization of supply chain processes like delivery routing and Track and Trace of cold trucks.
Historical Data & Trending Analysis
CrowdFarmX harnesses IoT capabilities to monitor variables such as water usage, leak detection, soil moisture, rain events, flow rate, electrical conductivity and other microclimate data. Having a database of such variables improves traceability and early detection of potential operational defects.
