Nosetsa is a machine learning-based precision irrigation add-on proposed by Yellow Beast (Pty) Ltd. It uses machine learning to provide autonomous irrigation using real-time sensor data. This allows the user to avoid excessive water losses through evapotranspiration, over-irrigation and ultimately adds value to the farmer’s crop produce by recovering up to 70% of lost water. The product is manufactured using recycled waste, delivers accurate measuring because of its artificial intelligence features and records data diligently because of its record keeping algorithms. The device also allows effective communication, because of connectivity to internet-of-things (IoT) devices.
The anticipated customers for the proposed offerings include large commercial agricultural organisations, emerging farmers, subsistence or rural farmers, as well as property owners, golf courses and parks, which are users of water for non-revenue purposes.
