MPT Agtech are building smart machines that are Self-Sensing, and Self-Adjusting, in Real Time, for large scale farming operations.
Our first product is a Tech-Enabled Broadacre Seeder.
Using a mixture of Edge AI (Artificial Intelligence); Integrated Sensors; and Smart Design, the seeder monitors various soil properties while seeding.
The machine operates in either ‘Auto’ or ‘Manual’ modes.
Auto Mode it is a super-smart, self-adjusting seeder that optimises itself for optimal seed placement.
Manual Mode it is simply a smart seeder, with full electronic row-unit control set from the tractor cab.
… in fact, there is nothing on the row units that requires manual adjustment.
Whilst the sensors are primarily to control Seeding Depth, they can also be used to adjust the Seeding Rate, whereby the seeding rate can be Increased or Decreased depending on the soil profile.
Mechanically it is the ideal product for deep moisture seeking, with seeding depths from 0 to 250mm.
The seeder does not require Internet connectivity to operate, as it is self-sensing and self-adjusting, however the data can be extracted post seeding to overlay with Yield Maps, and can be used in conjunction with other cropping applications such as spraying, providing the full spectrum of crop knowledge from the time the seed was placed, right through to harvest.
