Agricultural technology or AgriTech is driving a revolution in the farming industry. For many years tractors have been equipped with GPS systems to deliver fertilisers and other treatments to maximise yields and minimise environmental impact. Today the farmer can be served by satellites, drones, robotic pickers and spectroscopic sensors.
Many will be surprised to learn that the UK’s biggest farmer is now the billionaire inventor Sir James Dyson. Dyson is on a mission to make farming even smarter. Corbeau have been looking for smart technology too.
Corbeau Innovation has partnered with XpectralTEK to bring their Xloora precision viticulture platform to the UK which we have successfully piloted in a South Wales vineyard.
We have also developed our own IoT sensors with Backyard Vineyard and Strawberry Greenhouse technologies.
