Digital agronomy solution to identify, analyze and treat early signs of crop threats to make informed decisions, lower costs and maximize yield.  Spot the first signs of harmful insects using sub-millimetre resolution imagery to gain precise identification.  Early detection and identification of lesions, spots or abnormal crop behaviour.  Manage all fields in a single smart platform - imagery, analysis, insights, reports and cross-field comparisons.  Be precise in farm spraying with variable rate zones - plan, quantify and export prescriptions.  Seems to use drones and satellite images.  SmartScout technology is available in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Bulgaria.  Cloud solutions are available globally.

Tech Requirement Comment

Taranis offers imaging based on its proprietary technologies UHR & AI2. UHR is used to prioritize stressed areas. Taranis UHR captures multispectral imagery over fields using an imaging pod at 8-12 cm resolution. Based on priorities from UHR, the AI2 is deployed to analyze what is wrong through pictures of the crop at 0.1mm per pixel. Each picture is analyzed by a deep learning engine to assess plant health and quality. This uses mathematical models and hardware platforms on the cloud and has been trained by over 60 experts, providing more than 1,000,000 examples of crop health issues.
