Vast fields means major responsibility. In order to reduce monitoring costs, the largest agricultural company in Ryazan (Russia) decided to take advantage of special opportunities of Fort Monitor software developed for the agricultural enterprises.
To manage an agricultural enterprise effectively, it is important to know each piece of land, the area and the structure of the fields. Often, planning of sowing operations is based on paper cadastral plans, that have not been updated since the USSR times and may differ significantly from the real situation, because locations of the fields, roads and outlines of the settlements change dramatically over time. As a result, some of the fertile land may not be cultivated, which leads to unnecessary expenses for the maintenance of the area.
Avangard is a diversified farming company with 14 thousand hectares of cultivated lands. To optimize monitoring costs, the management of the company decided to connect agricultural machinery and trucks to Fort Monitor system.
The area of the fields was measured by means of touring the cultivated areas by vehicles equipped with Fort Monitor devices. After that, an electronic map of the field was made, which allowed to rotate crops annually and measure the yield of each section of the field. The software also made it possible to calculate the area of cultivated land, create reference books for crops and automatically determine their total area.
