The company was founded in 2016 with the goal of improving agriculture in the Philippines using the team’s expertise in Electronics Engineering. The company was granted a research and development fund by the Department of Science and Technology in 2018. Today, the company offers its Internet-of-Things Solutions to farm owners who need constant reliable remote monitoring and analytics to make the best decisions in the planning and day-to-day operations of their farm.
Monitoring and Warning System
Our core product is a monitoring and warning system for large tunnel-vent broiler poultry farms. The system monitors the chickens’ environment for temperature, relative humidity, carbon dioxide, and ammonia in multiple locations inside each farm building. When unfavourable conditions are about to be reached (e.g. unsafe levels of carbon dioxide), a warning is immediately sent to the farm personnel and farm owner. These unfavourable conditions occur sometimes due to equipment failure but mostly because existing climate control systems installed in the farm building typically only account for temperature. These warnings are sent together with a recommendation on what to do (e.g. increase fan speed to vent the air) so that immediate action can be taken. Further improvements can be undertaken when at the end of each grow cycle, the system generates a report which includes key performance indices and recommendations to lower the occurrences of these unsafe conditions thereby decreasing mortality rates, improving feed-to-weight conversion, and increasing average live weight.
