Buntata is an Android application that has been designed to help users identify plant pests and diseases with no a-priori knowledge. Buntata provides a visual key for the identification of diseases by displaying example images of symptoms. A user visually selects the part of the plant that is affected and Buntata displays images of recorded symptoms. Picking the image that most closely resembles the symptoms shows detailed information about possible causes, background information, diagnostics and control methods to help deal with the cause. Diseases can exhibit similar symptoms. Buntata displays diseases with similar symptoms together allowing easy comparison to help users identify the correct one.

This hand blower is very suitable for blowing predatory mites (montdorensis/swirskii/cucumeris), but can also be used for other insects. It has a range of four metres. Biospreader is mainly used for quick manual application of biocontrol agents, particularly mites, a local correction or when the greenhouse is not suitable for an automated system for the dispersion of predatory mites and feed mites. With the Biospreader, the user remains responsible for even distribution. This handheld blower comes with two batteries and a quick charger. It is sold directly by Agrobio but is also available from Royal Brinkman.
This app provides fast and direct entry of scouting-data with a smartphone or tablet; real-time overview of your greenhouse at any time; structured view of the scouting data via pc or web; visualisation of pest pressure and population build-up of beneficials; extensive data-analysis; direct contact with a Biobest advisor for personalised IPM advice.
Margaret (previously named Thales) is an artificial intelligence platform 100% oriented to the entire agri-food value chain. At the farm level, Margaret allows the farmer to integrate multiple IoT devices from the same or different vendors into one solution, after data standarization. By combining IoT devices, information from the farm operations and AI, growers can easily identify the pest or disease and therefore can get the list of authorized plant protection product suggestions without any classification or product recommendation from a specific crop protection company. This is among many other capabilities, such as harvest prediction or the integration of different market information sources.
