Natutec Drive is available to apply Koppert products evenly over the crop to get the most effective pest control. The product is a unit with a patented release system to disperse material into an airstream for distribution through tubes over crops. The Natutec Drive is applicable in any situation and based on the specifications of the greenhouse. The Natutec Drive module can be used as a customized vehicle or on existing farming equipment, no matter what crop system. This product is only available in combination with Koppert products.
UniMite biodistribution systems ensure an even distribution of predatory mites and feed mites in the crop, making biological control more effective and efficient. There are five UniMite bio-distribution systems, divided into bio-scatter and bio-blower systems. The company explains, for each system, what it is, how it works and for which crop it is suitable.
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.
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.
Alumaster 2.0 is a biodistribution system for predatory and feeder mites in a crop and works automatically.
