A smart insect trapping IoT device
Step 1: Thanks to the on-board camera and sensors, traps automatically collect daily catch count, identify pest species and measure local environment parameters.
Step 2: Pictures are sent to our servers where species identification and catch counting is automatically performed by our algorithms, then we evaluate catch and meteorological data.
Step 3: Farmers can track flight season curves on a personal online dashboard as well as receive suggestions on ideal defense times to maximize efficiency.
In the framework of OPTIMA H2020 project, a freely accessible DSS has been developed and is accessible in http://dss.optima-h2020.eu/. Pathogens incorporated into the tool are the following, Alternaria leaf blight for carrots, Downy mildew for vineyards, and Apple scab for apple orchards in Spain (Aragon region), France (Bordeaux region), Italy (Piemonte region) and Greece (Thessaly, Evia and Attica regions). The DSS provides users with a 5-day prediction, in an escalation step of 3 hours, of disease outbreak based on meteorological data, which is presented in a coloured interactive map, based on the risk level: Green for no risk (0%), Yellow for low risk, Orange for medium risk, and Red for maximum risk (~100%).
Thus, producers and other stakeholders operating in the agricultural production sector and carrot production can freely access this early prediction system, and consequently organize the agricultural aplications such as spraying applications for their cultivations. This tool enables fast decision-taking that leads to reduced qualitative and quantitative product degradation and yield loss that may derive by severe disease outburst. The additional benefits are the reduced and more cost-effective use of PPPs, the lower residues and the reduced environmental and human health impacts that derive from the over-use of PPPs during spraying applications that may not be needed or/and effective.
Aeir is a fast moving solar powered cablebot that has been designed to roam greenhouses in a fast and efficient way. It collects vital microclimate data (humidity, temperature, air composition & intensity, sunshine, rainfall) and transmits all this information to the system controller (flow valve). Based on its AI engine the system can detect early warning sign of disease and plant stress, decide on the irrigational needs of the greenhouse and operate all the climate control automations of the installation. Growers benefit from reduced inputs, higher yield and higher yield quality.
CropMonitor Pro provides field-level predictions on growth stage development, pest & disease risk and optimal spray timing using a dedicated weather data feed, advanced risk models and local pest and disease surveillance data. Decision support outputs summarise combined pest and disease risks to crops, indicate the potential need for treatment at key growth stages, and guide optimal treatment timing. Risk prediction and decision support services from CropMonitor Pro include forecasts for all pests and diseases which are important in terms of spray decisions from crop emergence onwards in wheat, oilseed rape and potatoes. Further crop modules and services are in development and will be launched in due course.
Nematool is Bayer's comprehensive solution for monitoring and treatment of nematodes in greenhouse and outdoor crops. With Nematool growers get real-time soil temperature information for better nematode management. The nematool will allow growers to monitor the generation of nematodes in their crop, with warnings of the first clutches of the next generation. Growers will also be able to control the quality of the solarisation processes in their greenhouse. In addition, they will be able to have access at any time to the history of soil temperatures at 20cm with the possibility of downloading detailed reports on the web.
Using industry-grade measures to collect information, we scan and analyze hundreds of millions of trees, providing you with the most comprehensive and dependable metrics per tree. With enhanced visibility and monitoring capabilities, we provide you with the actionable analytics that are revolutionizing farming.
Pathoscreen® kits for the diagnosis of plant pathogens are ELISA test kits that contain all the materials necessary to perform an ELISA protocol. The kits include precoated plates which save time and offer extraordinary stability. Kits are available in three sizes, 96, 288, and 480 test wells. ELISA kits are perfect to perform high-throughput tests.
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).
DAS-ELISA (Double Antibody Sandwich ELISA) is a double antibody sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent method for rapid detection of virus infection in different crops (tomato, lettuce, onion, citrus, pepper, etc).
The test can be used for rapid detection of CTV (citrus tristeza virus) in various tissues of citrus. Field samples should be collected preferably in spring or autumn, whereas sampling during prolonged hot weather should be avoided. Samples from 3-4 different locations on the tree should be pooled and samples are homogenized 1:20 (w/v) in an extraction buffer (Garnsey & Cambra (1991).
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.
