Technology to improve efficiency in row crops.


RealmFive remote management offers an opportunity to help high-performing growers reach their goals. Troubleshooting problems is easier with a real-time view of what’s happening in the field. If there’s an issue, your customers will know immediately – or you’ll see it and give an early heads-up, adding another valuable service to your business. An intuitive, user-friendly interface makes RealmFive accessible to even the less tech-savvy operator – and a developer-friendly API allows the raw data to be incorporated into other platforms, giving the ability to pull the data into 3rd party systems.

More information means more control. 

Investment in smart ag technology allows farmers to produce more with less labor, and inputs – getting the absolute most out of their land. The RealmFive solution enables growers to monitor a vast array of equipment and field conditions, from weather and soil moisture to pump operation and pond levels  – all in one platform, under one platform fee, and see it all on one screen. More information in one place means more efficiency, more controllower costs – and a whole lot less stress on growers and their crops. 

Simple, reliable, scalable

It’s a solution that can enhance the efficiency of growing virtually any type of row crop.Designed to be easily installed, wirelessly connected sensors continuously monitor vital stats in the field and on equipment. Sensors send data through a secure wireless connection to a RealmFive Gateway, Weather Front communications device or directly to the R5 Cloud. From there, data is accessed via the R5Click app or a developer-friendly API in another data platform to a wireless Gateway.

In addition to RealmFive’s own hardware, the system can also integrate with other brands of crop management technology. And because it’s modular, growers can easily add new pieces as their operation grows or new technology comes online.

RealmFive products ideally suited to row crop farming include: 

The center of it all. 

Gateway is the hub that connects all of the IoT equipment to the cloud – up to 50 devices can share one Gateway. Solar-powered for reliable performance anywhere and built to ensure the highest degree of reliability, Gateway’s LoRa wireless technology provides industry-leading connectivity across an operation, delivering important data in real-time. 

Gateway Network Hub
