FarmERP Revamps and Ramps Up Operations for a Dates Plantation in the Middle East 

Overview

A dates plantation enterprise, situated in the Middle East, was struggling to efficiently manage its end-to-end operations. With lack of agritech expertise and the absence of adequate equipment, this agribusiness was facing troubles on all ends. Right from tracking and managing the field and crop conditions to handling the laboratory activities, every function needed improvement.

That’s when the dates plantation enterprise approached FarmERP to join as their digital agritech partner. FarmERP devised customised solutions to effectively eliminate all the concerns and meet the most pressing needs of the client. The Middle East-based dates plantation witnessed higher operational efficiency and staggering productivity gains after partnering with FarmERP.

Challenge

  • With the plantation spread across vast farmland, monitoring and keeping track of all activities was quite tough.
  • The client was finding it difficult to properly plan and schedule the laboratory procedures as well as field activities.
  • In case of crop failure, it was not possible to quickly identify the particular batch to which the crop belonged to. Similarly, finding out details about the mother plant of that crop was not easy.
  • Attacks by the Red Weevil pests and the resulting crop diseases were major concerns of the date plantation owner.
  • Physically observing and tracking the health, performance of each and every crop was very time-consuming due to the big size of the plantation.
  • The plantation enterprise was not able to accurately estimate the water requirements for irrigation and other agricultural operations.
  • All the laboratory operations needed to be optimised for better productivity and profitability.
  • The enterprise lacked the ability to get precise yield estimates which also affected its cost-savings goals.

Approach

FarmERP initially assessed all the parameters, right from the plantation’s operational workflow to even the climate conditions in the region. With the help of these studies, FarmERP formulated smart, data-driven frameworks to mitigate the issues faced by the client. These solutions were based on the planning, production, post-production, quality control, traceability, biotech, and maps modules of the FarmERP platform.

  • FarmERP geo-tagged the plots and plants spread across the plantation.  
  • QR-code was assigned to every tree to easily track down the health, performance, costs incurred and the entire history of a particular tree.
  • Weather stations and drone cameras were used for real-time monitoring of field conditions. 
  • With the help of the FarmERP software system, manual record-keeping processes were replaced by automated and more accurate procedures.
  • The maps module enabled field managers to remotely assess and mitigate the threat of Red Weevil pests.
  • With ultra-modern tools and advanced technologies, FarmERP helped in efficiently managing all the laboratory activities including media preparation, plant inoculation room operations, plant growth room operations, equipment sanitation, etc.
  • FarmERP’s traceability module helped the plantation business to easily track the entire journey of every crop and even provided information about the mother plant. 
  • Along with excellent monitoring in real-time, the analytics capabilities and numerous dashboards of FarmERP helped the plantation enterprise in precisely identifying water requirements for irrigation and other activities. This feature also assisted in making accurate yield estimates.
