Farmote is a smart, innovative pasture monitoring system that combines satellite-based multispectral technology with accurate on-ground Motes to take the guesswork out of pasture and grazing management.
Easy To Install
Designed For Farm Use
Automatic Data Transfer
How the Farmote System works
The Farmote System works by collecting data from remote monitoring devices called ‘Motes’ installed at selected locations throughout your paddocks. The sensors contained within the Motes capture pasture measurements and soil conditions that are cross-referenced with multispectral images taken by satellites, and then uploaded to our website. By harnessing the latest technology in remote monitoring, you can make the right decisions that will boost your farm’s performance.
Saving you time
Efficiently running a farm takes a lot of time and effort. The Farmote System is easy to install and set up, and will save you precious time better spent running other aspects of your farm. Up-to-date pasture data is delivered directly to your computer and smart-phone through our mobile-friendly website, saving you time and effort. With accurate daily data, you can quickly make informed decisions to improve your pasture performance.
How you benefit
Farmote Systems helps you increase productivity and drive profitability by making your farm more efficient and effective. Making the correct decisions at the right time is critical – the Farmote System provides precise pasture data, allowing you to make the best decisions possible for your farm.
Profit from farm-wide technology
Farmote System’s revolutionary combination of data from satellites in space and Motes on the ground, provides precise daily pasture measurements and invaluable insights through a mobile-friendly web platform. It cross-references pasture growth data collected daily, using accurate remote monitoring devices in your paddocks, with multispectral images taken by satellites. Critical, up-to-date information is then uploaded for you to access online, wherever you are, at any time.
This all adds up to increased efficiency and productivity through good decision-making at the right time, leading to the ultimate goal of greater profitability.
