Adapting to climate uncertainties and soaring fertilizer prices are the main challenges faced by farmers today. Kubota Research and Development Asia (KRDA) and ListenField visited sugarcane communities in Suphan Buri province (Thailand) to discuss how machine vision technologies can effectively deliver agricultural advice and improve the climate resilience of farmers.

“Reduced rainfall and increased nighttime temperatures have significant impacts on yield. Crop modeling can reduce the risk of crop loss by calculating optimal planting and harvesting dates. We want to ensure that farmers in rural areas can benefit from these kinds of data-driven decision-making”, said Prof. Kiyoshi Honda, Chief Science Officer and Co-founder of ListenField.

KRDA and ListenField have been working together since 2019 to help farming communities in Thailand by providing precision farming technologies. ListenField’s FarmAI platform provides agri-food companies and farming communities with the necessary digital tools to estimate crop growth performance, characterize climate risks, and monitor soil conditions.
