Farmers and agri-food businesses seeking farming solutions to strengthen their resilience and decrease outgoings will turn to smart farming data management solutions like Automatic Meter Reading, that provide key analytics to better manage resources and ultimately reduce costs, improve yields and bolster profitability. With consumers increasingly basing purchase decisions on production methods, transparency on sustainability will be crucial.
The general benefits of smart farming technology include:
So, how do you approach all of this without making a sizable investment in something that takes you away from where you’re needed most?
A good place to start is installing Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) equipment. AMR is a smart meter that’s attached to your existing water meter. It regularly submits accurate water meter readings, keeping your bills up-to-date and removing the task of manual readings. But the best feature of AMR is the analytics it provides.
On user-friendly graphs in your secure online portal, AMR shows exactly how much water is being used and where. Use this to identify opportunities to start making major savings and improve water efficiency and sustainability. Find out more about how to improve water efficiency in farming and agriculture here.
AMR can notify you of unusual consumption activity that could be caused by costly leaks, so you can act fast to fix it, minimising damage, costs, and downtime. Castle Water’s industry-leading AMR experts can install AMR in less than 1 hour, and you can operate as normal throughout.
The control of wastewater on a farm needn’t be a balancing act. Unlike most businesses where wastewater has mineral elements that need to be removed, farms will have organic elements that need to be carefully controlled, especially if a farm is set up for wastewater to be treated and brought back into the system. Castle Water’s Agricultural Water and Wastewater Treatment services consider the flexible nature of the farm and agri-food business. From the use of water in harvesting, cleaning equipment, or looking after livestock, Castle Water can help to find efficiencies and ways to become more sustainable, reduce costs and save money.
