Towards the digitization of the agricultural sector
Traditional work methods that are time-consuming for farmers
Founded in 2019 in France, Ortix is a technology and agriculture company focused on supporting farmers with digital solutions with software and connected products. Ortix has developed Scopix, a solution to help farmers automate the recording of agricultural activity data, necessary for their monitoring and traceability.
During a working day, a farmer has to record his activities on the agricultural plots. These activities are varied (harvesting, weeding, spreading fertilizers, etc.) and must be systematically tracked and controlled due to regulations, such as those on organic labels for example.
Traditionally, this activity data was recorded during the day in notebooks and then transcribed into a register or plot management software, but this method caused some issues on a daily basis:
- Data entry could be time-consuming for farmers in the field
- The farmer could forget to write some information or even falsify it
- The data recording is also done manually at the end of the day
Scopix: a solution to simplify farmers’ work
Scopix is a traceability solution that effortlessly records farmers’ agricultural activities and monitors inputs directly from the cabs of vehicles (tractors, combine harvesters, etc.).
The solution includes a mobile device that is installed in the vehicle, which collects information from the beacons attached to the various farm implements. This mobile device automatically detects the location of the plot of land where the farmer enters and the type of activity carried out. It then asks the farmer to provide information on the inputs he will use during his activity. The device is connected to a database that suggests a list of inputs according to the activity. If the farmer exceeds the regulatory limit of inputs, he will immediately be alerted by the software to avoid non-compliance with the rules of use.
