Starting a business with smart agriculture succeeds beyond expectations

Agriculture is a fertile “field” for people to create, build and apply new technologies. Start a business with Smart farming has brought unexpected success to the young director of Appa Group Technology and Trading Joint Stock Company – Mr. Pham Huu Viet. Do you wonder what he did to start a business and create such a great achievement for himself?

It took 6 years to nurture the idea

Initially, Mr. Viet was a recent bachelor’s graduate from FPT University, majoring in programming. Right after graduation, he had many opportunities to work at units working in the field of information technology in Vietnam as well as abroad.

Mr. Viet was quite satisfied with the job at that time because it brought a stable income and a professional working environment. However, after only a short time, he made a bold decision to change his life in a completely new direction, his decision has not yet been courageously implemented. He moved from programming to start a business with smart agriculture to the surprise of friends, colleagues and relatives.

As he shared: “I am a person who pursues the technology industry, so I always aspire to bring to the community something new, creative and more useful to the community from my major. me. That intention has prompted me to change my goal to smart agriculture to partly help farmers remove a part of the burden and difficulties in production.”

In 2012, Mr. Viet began to conduct the first research stages for his product. After that, he tested the product many times to perfect the final steps, bringing the best achievement to the domestic agriculture.

It was not until 2018 that the products researched by Mr. Viet officially appeared on the market and applied to actual agricultural production. The research process until bringing the product to the hands of farmers has been seriously implemented by him for 6 consecutive years.

Products researched, created and applied by Mr. Viet to agriculture are: Smart agricultural system APPA-N1 whose main use is to regularly monitor the environment according to a certain cycle. At the same time, the system is also responsible for providing nutrients to the plants at the most accurate rate in each growing period. The system operates according to the trend of full automation and has an integrated instant warning mode.

The whole system is a line of information receiving and processing to help provide nutrients to plants automatically to bring high efficiency.

The system includes key equipment such as:

  • The CB1 sensor is capable of receiving continuous external environmental conditions: humidity, temperature, light in real time. From there send information signals to the Central Processing Unit.
  • The central processor T1 is where data is received and transferred to the Server.
  • Mobile application works with steady performance to update information from Server to and display to users.
  • The information will in turn be passed to the controller. At this time, the Server system will also analyze and calculate data information to determine when and the right amount of water and fertilizer to irrigate specifically for each crop.

The time is ripe for great success

Asked why such a great idea has been cherished by him for 6 years. Anh Viet said:

“Initially all I had was an idea, all the elements constituting the actual research and manufacturing work such as capital, personnel, and risk estimation were incomplete. Not only that, at that time, the issues related to smart agriculture seemed to be quite new and unfamiliar to farmers, so bringing products to the market after successful installation would also be difficult to receive.

During 6 years, Mr. Viet, in addition to researching to perfect the system, also had to focus on mobilizing capital. At the same time, all technological equipment and software systems are directly handled by engineers in Vietnam, so it takes a long time to bring the best results when put into use for farmers.

The smart agricultural system has brought great success and efficiency when applied in practice

Therefore, APPA Group’s smart agricultural system APPA-N1 possesses high superiority, lower cost than imported products and is easy to operate.

The great success that Mr. Viet received after a short time of bringing the product to market. Up to now, the group has nearly 20 agents to distribute equipment system nationwide. All customers who use APPA-N1 smart farming system give very good feedback.

The idea of ​​the corporation was honored to be selected as the only unit that could enter the presentation round of the Smart Agricultural Startup Competition and be in the Top 10 of the Techfest Vietnam Contest 2018.
