VegDr provides up-to-date information on vegetable diseases (in Georgia). The app contains information on various diseases, images of the symptoms, and lists the products that are considered effective for control. At the present time, the app includes cucurbits (cucumber, watermelon, squash, cantaloupe, pumpkin) and solanaceous crops (tomato and pepper).
Qualiplante and BIOREBA provide PCR and qPCR genetic detection products. These sets are ready-to-use, optimized for the application, validated (sensitivity, specificity, repeatability, reproducibility) and have lot-to-lot consistency. A Certificate of Analysis (CoA) is include included. One-step-reactions are used and positive and negative controls are included.
LOEWE's DNA PCR sets contain a premix, including the pathogen-specific primers and dNTPs for 100 PCR reactions and positive and negative controls for 10 reactions. All components are pre-tested and each product is accompanied by a lot-specific certificate and a working protocol.
The LOEWE®FAST rapid test series allows reliable and specific detection of plant pathogens within minutes. As stand-alone diagnostic tools, these tests provide a quick and easy assessment of suspicious plant material in the field or greenhouse without the need for a laboratory.
This company supplies test kits for detecting a range of plant viruses and some other pathogens of crops.
Complete kits contain all the components to perform an ELISA assay, i.e. IgG and AP-conjugate solution, positive and negative controls, ELISA buffers and chemicals, substrate tablets, and high-binding ELISA plates or stripe modules. Tests for plant viruses, fungi and bacteria. Starting in 2022 the company will release new diagnostic kits for molecular and serological detection of plant pathogens.
The company carries all Agritest, Pocket Diagnotic, Milenia Biotech, BioTNA and Loewe innovative products for the detection of plant pathogens. Also available are Ephyra Biosciences testing services which provide a full range of diagnostic assays for the detection of bacteria, viruses, fungi and phytoplasma using Elisa or PCR methods, to provide customers with rapid and rigorous testing for accurate and reliable results.
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.
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.
