Metos by Pessl offer a range of disease forecasting models for a variety of crops including vegetables. They are run using data collected by iMetos hardware and run using the Fieldclimate system. There are models for lettuce, onion, tomato and cucumber crops and also oil seed rape. There is also one pest forecasting model for pollen beetle flight days. All Pessl Instruments disease models are based on latest research work and measured with the highest accuracy sensors available. Pessl are also collaborating with leading developers and have established seamless interfaces to third party decision support systems as well (i.e. RIM-PRO, HORTA, ProPlant, Welte, Dacom etc.).
With the help of climatic and soil monitoring and forecasting systems from Pessl growers can:
This App detects crop fungal diseases at a primary stage and proposes adequate treatment.This app can be used to identify plant diseases from a photograph. Agrix Tech's AI can be embedded in 3rd parties apps.
This is a Plant Disease Identifier. Upload an image of (tomato, potato) plants and identify the disease that affects it. Learn about remedies and there is a practical video explanation to prevent further loss of plants.
Farmwave equipment uses vision-based artificial intelligence to add value. Farmwave hardware can be mounted on the header and back of farm machinery to capture, and geo-tag, an image every 5 seconds. For example, the hardware can be mounted on a sprayer and used to take images that assist with: pest and disease identification; plant counts; growth stage (crop height); weed detection (see and spray); % application coverage; nozzle performance.
HYBRiX 2.1 is a multirotor drone that provides up to 4 hours of operational flight time with only 25 kg MTOW. HYBRiX has been developed for easy operation. The removable arms allow for comfortable shipment and deployment. It can be quickly set up and operated by two people, with independent controls for the drone and its payload. It has the advantages of batteries and fuel combined to maximize power and efficiency. It will provide 2 hours of continuous aerial operation with a maximum payload, even in adverse weather conditions. This professional Ground Control System allows users to control the aircraft and its payload independently, both with digital communications.
The device collects particles from the air, such as fungal spores. At the end of the user-defined sampling period, the sample is moved through a series of different processes, which enables the instrument to detect the amount of spores of a target species that were in the air during the sampling period. To do this, the spores are broken open in order to release the DNA inside. Once broken open, a subsample of the disrupted spores is transferred to a tube of dried reagents within the device, in order to detect the DNA of a specific crop pathogen using a DNA-specific assay.
In its original form, the app links to live local weather data to analyse the factors that influence the accuracy of spray treatments and the potential for drift, including wind, rain and frost. The app suggests techniques for sprayer operators to mitigate risks or alter practices in terms of nozzle choice and sprayer set-up, including water volume and ground speed. Users can enter plans for cropping, locations, and product use and application timings; data from the farm’s spraying equipment enables algorithms to provide guidance on the most appropriate available sprayer set-up in any situation for the forecast weather conditions.
The Whirlwind M612 "Albatros Field Crop" Sprayers are sprayers with a special boom configuration and are suggested for the application of fungicide/insecticide treatments on vegetable and nursery crops. The Whirlwind delivers its spray in a fine mist that penetrates dense foliage, covering leaves, fruit and twigs alike with a fine coating of chemicals on all sides. No bare areas and no wasteful chemical run-off. It assures high speed operation, very fine and constant mist independent of the water flow rate, uniform coverage and distribution of chemicals, exceptional working range and penetration in any crop, of whatever shape - and even in difficult weather conditions.
This company develops autonomous mobile robots for indoor and outdoor use. One model can be adpated for spraying crops. It is used remotely, semi-automatically or autonomously.
The robot is for use in greenhouses and moves smoothly through the heating pipes via an electric and internal combustion engine with a capacity of 205cm3 and a power of 6.5 HP. The sprayer goes to the end of the row and from the end begins the procedure going towards the connector, this allows even and fast spraying, which is effective only when it is done immediately after the detection of an outbreak of plant disease. The track width of the wheels is adapted to the individual needs of the customer. The design consists of acid-resistant materials. The remote control attached to the sprayer allows you to stop the device during the journey. The PLC operating the device additionally counts the hours worked and also allows you to save the routes and current configuration. The whole is powered by two 44Ah batteries.
