Smart Agriculture

Elevating agricultural management is another crucial mission in driving the future of the nation with knowledge from utilizing technology to develop the country’s potential through the “Power of the Community.” However, this knowledge is not extended to be practically applied, remaining as missed opportunities and a lack of continuity in generating sustainable benefits for creating livelihoods and profits for communities.

Smart Agriculture: Innovations in Crop Production for a Profitable Future to Contribute Revenue Back to the Community

By extending the curriculum of Smart Agriculture, “Crop Production Innovation for the Future,” under the operation of Mahidol University, Kanchanaburi Campus, the aim is not only to promote learning in agriculture through suitable technology but also to propel the principles of Precision Agriculture. This involves utilizing technology to increase agricultural productivity accurately and safely within a specified timeframe. This is directed towards a Social Enterprise platform ready to reinvest profits back into the community of Kanchanaburi province, fostering sustainable self-reliance. Through the development of “New Agricultural Products,” by modifying plant varieties to meet consumer market demands, communities can efficiently extend commercial businesses.

Controlling high-level sweetness, the development of tomatoes that naturally increase sweetness from the Brix value, a measure of sugar concentration in fruit juices, typically ranging from 7-8% for regular tomatoes to 16%, while retaining nutritional value and being safe for health.

Enhancing the nutritional value of tomatoes not only as a vegetable component but also making it compatible with fruit dishes. This is achieved by developing cultivation techniques using intelligent greenhouse cultivation systems, such as the Smart Grobot (Agro Intelligent) system. It employs AI and IoT to control production conditions, fertilization, and watering according to the needs of plants, reducing losses, costs, the use of pesticides, and chemical fertilizers. Additionally, it includes post-harvest processes that inspect sweetness to meet the standards of a Japanese private company, ensuring the sweetness and grade of each fruit. This approach reduces labor, prioritizes environmental sustainability, and ensures consumer safety, contributing to the development of Thailand’s agricultural potential and improving the quality of life for farmers.
