UISA Boosts Sugar Yields
using AI

UISA uses FlashStack from Pure Storage and Cisco to support its Agriculture 4.0 initiative. Through artificial intelligence and Internet of Things, UISA captures and analyses data and increases yields.


FlashStack provides the speed and scalability to power the Agriculture 4.0 initiative at UISA. Using artificial intelligence and Internet of Things, UISA captures and analyses data from 850 equipment sensors across 222,000 acres of sugarcane fields. These results help optimise operations and reduce losses for sustainable growth and efficiency.
