The importance of the radio communicator in the agricultural sector

Brazil is one of the largest producers and exporters of agricultural products in the world. The largest industry sectors include:

  • Grains
  • Cattle
  • Swine
  • Dairy products
  • Horticulture
  • Poultry and eggs

In each of these sectors, there is a need for reliable communication to keep the team in touch at all times. And there are many reasons why two-way radios remain the best form of communication.

If you are working on a farm, it is a premise to have technology that is robust enough to cope with all the conditions of your operation. such as falls and vibrations from machinery, weather exposure that field workers deal with throughout the year.

What’s more, if you work in agriculture, you don’t usually work just eight hours a day. With new technologies, the battery can last up to 29 hours without charging. There are also waterproof radio transmit ter options that can work for up to an hour underwater.

VHF two-way radios remain an excellent resource for communication in agricultural environments. This frequency, which stands for ‘Very High Frequency’, is designed to carry communication over long distances, ideal for the huge farms that exist in Brazil.

When the team communicates effectively, in addition to better production, we also have more efficient working practices and, as a result, better safety when carrying out activities.

When problems occur, workers have relied on two-way radios for years which, at the touch of a button (PTT), can provide immediate answers and quick solutions to team members.

There are other features in digital radio besides voice communication, such as: Man Down, Lone Worker, GPS tracking, emergency call, telephone interconnection and others. These aspects make our equipment safer for the user.
