The location-aware OKO platform knows where it is in the greenhouse at any given time, making it possible to precisely record issues and mark the location for follow up treatment. While driving in the crop rows, LCD Live Alerts bring the operator’s attention to the areas with high risk of pest or disease infestation and prompts for verification and task assignment. OKO Immersive has the same benefits plus added features to monitor and protect plant health. Immersive provides a 360 view of the greenhouse where growers, and consultants can take a virtual walk inside and see what is happening in near real-time.
Agras MG-1 is an octocopter designed for precision variable rate application of liquid pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides, bringing new levels of efficiency and manageability to agriculture. The MG-1 ‘s powerful propulsion system allows the aircraft to carry up to 10 kg liquid payloads. The MG-1 is succeeded by the T10 (https://www.dji.com/be/t10)
FarmShots™ satellite imagery service provider is a solution to help growers maximize yield, efficiency and profits. As an expert in high resolution satellite imagery analysis, FarmShots will analyze satellite and drone imagery to help detect diseases, pests and poor plant nutrition. The software integrates seamlessly into the AgriEdge whole-farm management program; which allows growers to make better, faster decisions. Satellite imagery allows growers to pick out problem areas on their farm, keep track of the locations of issues, share information about changes to a field and set up agronomists, suppliers, and farmers in a hierarchy.
Spy Fly is a monitoring system that uses modern technologies to allow the farmer to monitor the phytosanitary conditions of their crops, directly from their smartphone or other device. Equipped with a practical and resistant modular casing, SpyFly is able to attract harmful insects, using the combined action of colour attraction and pheromones, allowing them to be captured on an adhesive surface. At intervals, SpyFly photographs the adhesive paper, transferring the images to a cloud platform, where they are processed and analyzed by algorithms, thus identifying harmful insects. SpyFly also measures meteo-climatic parameters, useful for developing predictive models on the spread of harmful agents.
The Smartomizer High Density H3O is an intelligent and connected atomizer for localized applications. It is intended to carry out large-scale treatments with maximum uniformity in fruit farms. This atomizer achieves a saving of approximately 40% of the volume of spray, performing effective localized treatments in these demanding crops. The H3O system is an agronomic management tool that allows growers to regulate and automatically adjust the application of phytosanitary treatments according to the plant mass of the crop. Once the treatment is finished, all the data of the spray are recorded and can be viewed on the digital platform.
This is a Smart control system for crop protection applications. It allows automatic application of crop protection products. It will adjust pressure and flow rates automatically. System saves application records and settings used. Data is geolocated to create an intensity map showing the amount of product applied to each section of the crop. Records can be exported. A variety of sensors can be connected to, for example, show blocked nozzles. It also allows a variable dosage to be applied.
Using Artificial intelligence search pattern techniques, data clustering and phenological models the software can reduce the time spent scouting crops, and improving the result of treatments. FuturCrop predicts the biological development of 179 pests and thus calculates the best moment to treat them. This platform allows you to carry out fewer but more efficient treatments, exactly when pests are more vulnerable to them. Also scouting, captures and treatments can be recorded using a mobile phone. FuturCrop collects daily data from 85,000 weather stations around the world and performs the calculations that determine the state of development of potential pests in the crops of its users. If the user has his own weather station, he can configure access to his location-specific data.
OPI is a grower support system based on smart agriculture sensors, artificial intelligence and advanced agronomic models. OPI helps growers to make decisions, protect their crops from pests and deal with climate change. It can also help to improve management of agrochemicals and irrigation. OPI can be used in the open field, protected crops, greenhouses and vertical farms. A few models are available to predict plant disease e.g. downy mildew and powdery mildew. However, the company is also happy to work with growers and/or research organisations to develop/adapt other models. There is the capacity to use AI in refining models. The user can input information about the crop and its management and can also access weather forecasts (developed by another provider). Alerts can be provide by any system the customer prefers e.g. SMS, email.
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.
