Agricultural & Rural Automation

Your Time is Valuable

Automation is never about replacing humans, it’s about getting machines to do the tedious and mundane tasks.

We understand that for farmers and other agricultural workers, your time is precious, which is why we offer a range of automation services geared for agricultural industry so you can spend your time on the things that matter.

Agricultural automation, a customised service offered by Nightwind Developments, is transforming the farming industry to be on par with modern business practices. We bring bespoke electronic and software solutions, optimised robotics, automation and mobile and computer applications to streamline farming processes. It delivers optimal success, reduces time-wastage on trivial tasks and increases productivity.

Long gone are the days when only high-level corporates enjoyed the benefits which skilled programmers bring to a business. Easy access to technology has transformed the way the modern world operates, including farming.

  • We create solutions to most challenges which you might experience while farming. Automated processes can’t replace humans in any industry, but it does have promising benefits such as reliable processing, cost-effective production and accurate reporting. It saves you time and money, allowing you to redistribute your resources more effectively to other vital areas of your operation.
  • A key feature of all our projects, from prototyping to minor changes, requires an exceptional level of built-in security. We research all possible vulnerabilities and take care to install excellent communication between various elements within your system, protecting your data at all times.
  • We exert all possible resources and often collaborate with professionals in specific fields to find solutions of the highest possible standard to solve your problems and challenges.

As a farmer, you are probably aware of the copious hours you and your staff spend on mind-numbing, time-consuming tasks. With us, you have the opportunity to change it all. Why not consider streamlining your farming practices and increase productivity through optimal results with our high-level programming? We can help you with the transition from outdated methods to modern-day solutions.

  • How much time do you spend driving around, covering vast distances to open and close taps, gates, or switches? An automated system can take care of these farming chores and ensure it happens remotely, according to set times.
  • You don’t have to adjust to the technology available. We create exclusive systems to adapt to your unique needs–systems that eliminate human error or negligence with negative implications on your production. For example, over- or under irrigation – automation enables you to complete specific actions, such as cattle herding, through opening and closing of gates remotely.
  • Accurate monitoring and reporting offer you a platform to make informed decisions to improve your farming practices. It gives you better insight into water and food consumption, production levels and weight gain in livestock. It eliminates estimates and errors and leaves you with accurate data.

We are a team dedicated to applying electronic engineering to deliver automated solutions to your challenges. From our office in Wellington, our growing business solves problems globally. Our company vision is to deliver high-end solutions on par with professional programming standards regardless of the size, type or location of your business.

Why settle for less when you can trust the best? We make tech solutions easy for all.
