This Rostselmash event that was streamed via 4 social media channels was watched by agricultural business and IT experts. Here’s what they say.
Sergey Tkachenko, Step’ R&D and IT Director:
The RSM Digital Drive is an exciting and useful event. Besides the automatic guidance systems, other services offer by Rostselmash are very interesting. I mean RSM Face ID or RSM Transport ID, RSM Smart Tag, RSM Yield Map and a number of others. They are all essential for agricultural companies, especially large holdings. This will all come in handy for operations next year. It’s too early to talk about any specific economics, but right now we can clearly see some sensible benefits. Therefore, we are planning to buy a few such E-system packages for the next harvesting campaign.
Sergey Kosogor, Agroicultural Sector Digitalization Project Manager, Centre for Technology Transfer, Higher School of Economics:
The RSM Digital Drive event has lived up to the expectations. Today, we’ve seen top-class digital solutions that ease and in some ways substitute the hard labour of the growers. Such solutions boost the productivity of field operations and power reserve for our agricultural producers. Definitely, I only wish Rostselmash success in creating such and other digital solutions that will give our producers a competitive edge on the global market.
Denis Shesterov, Youtube blogger, LandTech channel:
Today’s farming cannot already exist without electronic systems that provide a noticeable boost to the productivity of farming machines and cut farms’ costs. For instance, systems such as RSM Agrotronic Pilot 1.0 and 2.0 aim to save on waste passes of machines in fields. With them, the width of a header or implement can be used in the best way possible. The RSM Yield Map system allows for efficient and smart nutrients placement. Other systems that we could see in action during the RSM Digital Drive are also geared towards boosting performance in agriculture.
