AUTONOMOUS DEVICE on the FIELD
For a long time we have had to struggle with fundamental mistakes in the practice of today's agricultural management.
The price of high yields is at the expense of biogenic topsoil and leads to dependency on chemical and agro groups.
The field implement described below would be associated with several positive effects; it enables rational organic farming, is easy to implement, would be affordable, time-saving and practical in its application:
Similar to a self-propelled robotic lawn mower, a solar-powered bar vehicle could be offered for various lighter jobs in agricultural use. For the first spatial orientation, a boundary wire designed around the edge of the field serves as the line path change of the device. In this way, the Softweare learns to run every plot of land on its own, even without a perimeter wire. The complex autonomous drive technology via 5G, as for the planned road mobility, is not necessary for this purpose.
The working width would be variable between 1.4 to 7 meters *. Such an agricultural equipment drives on four lightly wheeled e-wheels with a total of about 4000 watts of power ** and four de-energized wheels. With its approximately 10 m² of thin-film solar films, it delivers good power output even in diffuse light conditions. In addition, a battery change allows any necessary residual demand.
The energy for the mechanical field work comes from a carbon compressed air tank. So could e.g. Specially designed board software detects sprouting weeds and keeps them from growing. A series of hydraulic lances separate the main root from the pest. Thus, the device provides - in dry spring weather used - the decisive dominance for sowing.
Another essay sprays organic pesticides - instead of the usual "RoundUp's"! The injection tank would be a separate trailer with synchronized e-wheels. Also as a bar mower and for hay preparation, the basic unit could receive corresponding essays ***. Furthermore it could put the worm crate crop spreading or young plants. The autonomous beam provides valuable and environmentally compatible work steps - with minimal work and time and low operating costs. In the equipment warehouse it needs about 2 m² and 4 m room height. On the way to and from the field boom are folded up ****.
Only for harvesting cereals and for larger crops, it still needs the heavy machinery.
The software could be designed to detect brooding animals in the field and protect their nesting site.
Carefully treated floors have a rich micro life without plowing. With regular crop rotation and an autonomous disc harrow which gently crumbles the topsoil, fertile soil can be reached even without "agrochemical aids". Only deep plowing makes them nutrient-poor, depriving them of their natural function as mother-earth-topsoil! Only with gentle processing a return to profitable organic cultivation is possible.
Whether with a direct subsidy for the purchase or in terms of tax deductibility, there should be environmental protection funding for autonomous, solar arable mobility, just like with the purchase of an e-car. Because today a farmer travels an enormous amount of fossil kilometers on his fields 4 - 7 times line by line every year! These routes save our light devices in a clean way.
Social and economic aspects associated with the use of this HiTech device
In the already 24,000 rural organic farms in Austria, significant standards and improvements would result: the women would no longer have to do a lot of monotonous tractor driving lessons in the field. But they would be at the farm and as a mother with their children. The man would not be a pendulum "sideline farmer", but instead of monoculture could reap diverse fruits in good organic quality. The peasant farming would thus be relieved of joyless racking. His work then served as general food safety and is no longer just a "function" for the food industry.
On the one hand, in view of the increasing consumer demand, and on the other hand, with the desire for rural original joy and love of sowing and harvest, this way with the light, self-propelled beam devices would be possible. The agricultural products of regional farmers could yield a pleasing return in the organic association - as Fairtrade organic food.
Such equipment would be purchased and used by several small farmers together. With serial availability, in addition to the conventional tractor, they would be an affordable and soon profitable investment.
Biodiverse habitats need around 5% fallow stripes to protect the numerous animal and plant species. These are also a beneficial, economically justifiable and indispensable measure against a silent spring! Regardless of whether it is mandatory or set up as an instruction, it would make sense to promote environmental protection that could be easily controlled by satellite image. An annual subsidy for their beekeepers (about 2 € per bee colony) would also be reasonable for a municipality. These measures lead directly to a quick re-greening!
Too many highly dangerous chemical all-round poisons radically minimized the variety of insects - and unfortunately also the songbirds, whose insects are on the menu. After all, 75% of all insects have disappeared in the past 30 years! So overall there is too little of the formerly lavish bird, flower and butterfly splendor.
The unhealthy development to rapid "rural exodus" and urbanization that is taking place globally in turbo capitalism - must be countered technically NEW!
The contracted SDGs must be actively implemented by the signatory states within the timetables. These goals can also be achieved with the help of the respective steering and promotion instruments - for the common good and for the sake of creation!
* The beam arms consist of four 1.5 long, detachable elements each with a wheel. Their arm joints provide flexible ground adjustment. The arm frame can be attached to the PV foils.
** The 10 cm wide flat rims are covered in full contact by a rubber profile. A susceptible Luftschlauchbereifung is not necessary here. The wheel spokes each lead to a 500 watt hub motor. The 1 m wide center section leads on four wheels, the compressed air tank and the batteries. The latter are charged at the farm as a reserve with the PV system.
*** On the slope, the work efficiency is provided more efficiently only downhill. The speed will be between 5 and 35 km / h depending on the power.
**** On the way to the field or to the yard, the device is controlled by joystick, sitting on the middle section. Beforehand, the appropriate code entry must enable the operation. All fieldwork can be controlled and monitored remotely via the app. In Lifecykle, the approx. 50 kg aluminum tube struts (+ 40 kg wheel weight) provide the best raw material for further use.
These patent-free suggestions now need regional implementation by our agricultural technology- and Vehicle -manufacturers and the politicians - this is my strong vision ...
At best, these approaches should also be considered before UNHCR and UNIDO for further implementation.
