ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND AUTOMATION WILL LEAVE THEIR MARK ON THE EXHIBITION
The firms operating in the field of artificial intelligence and automation in agriculture will host the visitors at their stands with their latest technological products at this year’s Growmach exhibition. Şeyda Gül, Marketing Expert from Mana Havacılık that manufactures agricultural spraying drones in Ankara stated that they aim at both promoting their drones and services and creating new networks at Growmach exhibition.
Stating that they attach importance to sectoral exhibitions, Gül said they will be convening and individually communicating at the exhibition with farmers and manufacturing firms as well as certified pilots.
Providing information regarding Mana Havacılık, Şeyda Gül said the following “Our firm holds an installation team of an over-30 years of experience and over 100 employees in the field of aviation and aerospace.
Our firm manufactures agricultural spraying drones and provide spraying services to the farmers with the help of these drones.
With human-oriented approach in our manufacturing and service, we aim at providing the most appropriate solutions to the needs of our customers.
As Mana Havacılık, we manufacture 3 different types of drones and provide operational and training services. With the help of our UAV1 and UAV2 certified pilots, we provide spraying services to the farmers at their request.
We also train UAV1 and UAV2 certified pilots with the help of our trainings approved by the University of Turkish Aeronautical Association and the Directorate General of Civil Aviation. Aerial agricultural spraying via drones will provide an advantage not only in respect of water but also in savings of agricultural sprays.
We also have the opportunity of preventing the potential harm on crops that grew over a certain level when they are plowed by tractors. This helps us raise efficiency.”
AUTOMATED STEERING SYSTEM FACILITATES THE WORK OF FARMERS
Oğuzhan Arık, General Manager of AGV Tecnic that manufactures ‘automated steering’ that has the remote command capability over the tractor on a certain route, stated that the system helps them raise product efficiency and reduce operating costs.
Arık said the following “The automated steering system provides the capability to the driver in creating regular lines over a route defined by the user on the field to be processed, with the tractor and self-propelled agricultural machinery (harvester-thresher, beet lifter, cotton harvester, etc.).
AGV Technic automated steering system ensures comfortable completion of the processes on your field without being affected by negative weather conditions.
It mostly prevents the overlapping of lines in spraying, fertilizing and crop planting practices. With this system, input costs will be lowered as fertilizer and seed expenditures are decreased. Farmers can adapt to this system easily.
Automated steering system also ensures savings of fuel, time, fertilizers and spraying. An efficiency rise of 20 per cent may be ensured out of all the entire procedures. In other words, you can obtain 120 decares of product out of a land of 100 decares.
We stand with our farmers with maximum sensitivity, easy installation, multiple operating modes, remote connection and 7/24 technical support.” Expressing that domestic and international firms will come together on the occasion of the Growmach exhibition which will be held for the first time this year Oğuzhan Arık added that visitors will find the opportunity to examine all of their products closely.
WE BRING AGRICULTURAL EFFICIENCY TO AN UPPER LEVEL
Ömer Faruk Koç, the founder of the Istanbul-based Move On firm that operates on artificial intelligence and automation areas in agriculture stated that they provide advantages on both cost and operation efficiency to the manufacturers in the sector.
Koç also noted that with the patented software they developed as the Move On, they bring agricultural efficiency to an upper level in areas like post-seeding product harvesting, spraying, fertilizing, and weeding with the help of artificial intelligence and camera systems integrated into the tractors.
Providing information regarding the works of Move On, Koç said the following: “Our firm received its first patent in 2018; and we started our operations as January 2020.
We provide services across Türkiye, primarily in Marmara Region. We are among the top 5 global firms operating in the agricultural artificial intelligence and autonomy of tractors.
We aim at preventing agricultural inefficiency and we want to be beneficial to the sector and farmers. We are a firm whose hands are on keyboard and whose feet are on soil.
We continue to grow in this sector with the help of different levels of artificial intelligence softwares developed by our Software and R&D teams.
This system provides great beneficial results in respect of plant counting, weeding, agriculture efficiency analysis, and minimizing the crop loss.
The studies we conducted showed an 8 per cent of wastage per decares when conventional ways are used. With Move On, crops are harvested optimally as tractors are sensitively positioned in the field.
This also helps avoid losses arising during the harvest. Our studies for international markets are also in progress.
We intend provide added value to our county via the income we obtain from international markets.” Ömer Faruk Koç also added that they are excited to be meeting with the producers and firms in Antalya region for the first time through their participation as an exhibitor to Growmach exhibition.
