Every year farmers are confronted with the decision what to plant on their fields. It is a tough one, as there are hundreds of varieties out there and it is hard to pick the one suited for the local growing conditions. Within the Reach Incubator, Cropt is collaborating with Delta, the biggest agricultural company in Serbia, whose Selsem soybean varieties are among the most popular in the region.
Cropt is using satellite, soil and weather data along with Delta’s field books to train advanced machine learning models for crop growth modelling. Based on the predicted yield, the Selsem soybean variety optimal for the local environment is recommended to the farmer. In this way, Delta’s clients are achieving higher profits and the company has a huge opportunity to boost its sales.
