Challenges of Global Agriculture
- World population is predicted to increase to 9 billion by 2050.
- Appropriate fertile acres are decreasing Worldwide.
- Climate change is a risk that can effect yields.
- Overall food production need to increase.

Where can we start?
The IoT trend generates increasing opportunities for smart- and connected machines and products that are working together, or near each other within Agriculture Precision Industries. With these products and data it’s possible to reshape the competition and develop ground-breaking opportunities for companies and end-users (clients). What earlier was known as discrete machines, can become a System-of-a-System or become part of a smart machine system with closely related products, this could be linked together in a sequence of systems that works together.
Where can we support you?
Scheper.Co – Engineering & Consulting has cooperation’s with different solution providers and offer domain knowledge, engineering and consulting capacity. Together, we can propose Agriculture manufacturers integrated solutions (products) for precision farming, supported with our 3P’s model. We would like to accomplish products that have the highest economic value, highest reliability and become fit-for-use by, high-quality maintenance, engineering and services for a zero-footprint. We have also the ability to increase our R&D capacity, by directing research and innovation teams on your needs. For this we are partnering with an Innovation-Hub in the Middle-East.
Why should you improve your equipment?
Example A (Technical Blueprint developed in 2017 with Business case):
A propelled sprayer manufacturer for instance, can find itself competing in a broader farm automation industry. Think about opportunities for yield-management and not only about existing functionalities of machines. The propelled sprayer can for instance collect data about many crop and soil conditions. And treats this with the most effective spray methods (by developing non-existing innovative) or existing efficient smart technologies or additional service-activities, so clients get the best-suited solution.
Example B (Technical concept Blueprint developed in 2018 with Business case):
A manufacturer of tillage equipment for instance, can compete in a broader farm automation industry. In this case you can think about opportunities for Soil-Data-Management and not only about existing functionalities of machines. Tillage equipment can collect data about many soil conditions, combine different functionalities (tillage, seeding, data) and adjust the machine interaction real-time by acting with the most effective an sustainable method during operations and generate data about soil characteristics during growth. The value of these information predicts possible yields of specific crops with actual information (drone support) during season. This provides a grid that can be compared with existing data of soils and growth.
What are the overall benefits?
The farmer gets clear insights for the best suited solutions from a neutral perspective (the farmer is in control). It’s obvious that commercial advices by consultants of suppliers are not always independent, think about efficiency, cost and durability. Besides, this information also gives clear insights about current engineered machines and products, and generates design triggers based on data for needed improvements with new releases. This creates opportunities and steering possibilities (asset management) for the complete life cycle of machines, services and processes on a cost-effective, durable and efficient way.
