MimosaTEK is an Internet of Things precision agriculture solution that helps farmers improve their irrigation and farming practices. MimosaTEK’s vision is to build an information platform to improve the lives and livelihoods of farmers by transforming experience-based farming activities into information-driven activities.
MimosaTEK provides the technology for both agricultural companies and smallholder farmers.
Capability and features
Farmers can apply the solution to optimize irrigation and fertigation activities on farms. This allows them to optimize water, electricity and fertilizer usage, achieve optimum crop yield and provide full traceability to their commercial partners
Traders can use traceability data of farmers using the technology to manage the supply chain and to inform the end consumers.
Governments can sponsor technology for farmers, which improves their supply chain management and improve farming quality in their region. Governments can also make use of data from weather stations to help farmers in the region manage their crops more efficiently.
