The wellness of our planet is one of the topics which is becoming increasingly important for entrepreneurs. In fact, from the quality of the lands depends the authenticity of the products we consume and the health of our ecosystem.
Even in the machines sector for culture’s protection, the topic of sustainable agriculture affects the most active company in the sector. The theme of agriculture 4.0 is a highly topical issue due to its transversality. In fact, this is a topic which involves all the agri-food industry, from the production to raw materials transformation, until the distribution phase.
Adopting solutions which allow to combine environmental sustainability to a major culture’s productivity is the best strategy that agricultural holdings can pursue. In this article, Caffini will focus on the theme of agriculture 4.0 and which benefits may bring to each business.
Which are the pros of agriculture 4.0?
Today, the companies who invest in the crops’ protection, are searching solutions that allow the optimisation of production processes, without forgetting to treat the soils which host the crops.
At this point, you may wonder which are the benefits in economical and environmental terms that agriculture 4.0 can produce. The soils cultivated with high-tech machines assure final products able to maintain over time their organoleptic characteristics. So, the foods obtained will be good and healthy.
But the advantages of sustainable agriculture do not end here: a more efficient managing of lands assure an increasement of production and a rise of their quality. The range of Caffini boom sprayers and mist-blower sprayers is designed to respond to these needs and to offer safe and sustainable technologically advanced solutions.
The best machinery of the range of Caffini self-propelled sprayers is Rider: the perfect solution to the treatment of large areas of corps in open field. The characteristic who makes it so appreciated by numerous farmers and contractors is the perfect balance between strength and reduced weight. Thanks to this winning combination, it is assured the best performance of protection, without giving up to the aspect of manoeuvrability which makes the usage of the machinery easier.
Based on the demands of each entrepreneur, Rider boom sprayer may be personalized by inserting a computerized system, such as ISObus or CAN bus. These are standards that allow an automatised control of the treatment, besides having available a system of self-driving.
CS Connect system: Caffini opens the doors to digital innovation
Facing the actual digital revolution, many primary sector companies have been caught unprepared. This is not Caffini’s case: since 2011 the company has designed an advanced system of interconnection, named GAST, which allowed a link between the machine and the corporate computer. This innovation had gained an important recognition for its capability to highly increase company’s productive process, at the international event SIMA in Paris.
To date, Caffini continues with its path towards digital innovation. The last news, thought and developed to better respond the needs of agriculture 4.0, is the CS connect system. In particular, it is an evolved system which enable a data transmission between the mist-blower sprayer and the chosen corporate device. Which is the plus that distinguishes the CS Connect from the previous data transmission systems? Between Caffini sprayer and the computer is built a bidirectional communication which allows the operator to always have the data regarding the operation conditions of the machinery.
Thanks to the CS Connect, every farmer may dispose of data in real time regarding the trackability of the machine, its status of safety and the possibility to run the diagnostic remotely. The entire range of Caffini boom sprayers and mist-blower sprayers can be easily equipped with the new system to permit an optimal functioning of the machine. In addition, CS Connect allows you to benefit from tax breaks provided by the 2020 Tax Credit: you only have to acquire any Caffini machinery equipped with the new system.
The access to the Tax Credit for agriculture 4.0 has never been easier: even the SprayVeg - the Caffini boom-sprayer for fourth range horticultural products - may be equipped with CS Connect to optimized working on trunk, both in the greenhouse and in open field. Furthermore, the presence of an air sleeve, combined with an electrostatic system, increases the penetration of the phytosanitary in the leaf mass, avoiding the drift effect.
The objectives of agriculture 4.0 consist in a new challenge for the future of the agricultural sector. To reach a better level of productivity and a more sustainable management of corps working processes, is necessary to make strategic choices that take count of our planet’s wellness.
Reduce cost of production, improve the quality of the products and increase productions: precision agriculture is no more an alternative but the way ahead to make your company more competitive.
Caffini’s philosophy is translated in a claim as simple as efficient: Technology & Ecology. The combination of both these elements allows the realisation of performing boom sprayers and mist-blower sprayers, trustworthy and sustainable.
