In land-scarce and highly urbanised Singapore, local AgTech start-up Archisen is developing Croptron™, a smart urban farming system that uses sensors, IoT technology and data analytics to improve farm management processes and crop yields.

Data on plant physiology, soil and water conditions will be monitored real-time collectively across all farms using the Croptron system. Instead of employing guesswork and individual experience to improve farm management, Croptron uses this data and collective experiences to drive decisions in areas such as farm planning, irrigation and pest management.

Next up, Archisen is planning to improve data collection through image and video analytics for crop monitoring, automation of seeding and epigenetics for personalised nutrition and better crop yieds.
