Topcon Agriculture is expanding its hard- and software solutions for farming with a cloud-based IoT Farm Management Information System (FMIS) application for data analytics and visualisation.
With this so-called Topcon Agriculture Platform (TAP), the company wants to expand its precision farming offerings and help make farm data analytics easier to use.
The platform is designed to offer a centralised hub for both machine and agronomic data to enable data sharing and improve traceability. Fabio Isaia, CEO of Topcon Agriculture says: ‘The application offers product documentation, traceability and connectivity to help farmers become more profitable and leverage their investment in existing equipment.’
Farmers using TAP can, not only store their data in a secured environment, they can also share their data with agronomists, crop consultants and trusted advisors.
TAP allows the user to plan, create and design prescription maps utilising data previously gathered like yield data. Users can also visualise and review in field data. With the platform, Topcon aims at improved operational efficiency and productivity from both machines and activities in an easy-to-use format for farmers worldwide.
