FEATURES THAT MAKE PLANTCT™ UNIQUE
With an automated spore trap, the warning system is able to alert growers to the disease risk in the concentration level of airborne pathogens – like downy mildew, powdery mildew, grey mould, etc. – in vineyards or orchards.
The system recognizes the type of insects and will help you to choose the most effective and environmentally friendly solution and spraying method. With the PlantCTTM system the users can follow simultaneously the growth of the BBCH, the flight curve and the number of captured insects per day.
LEAF SURFACE SENSOR
The leaf surface sensor is a very handy tool for plant areas with a lot of variants and checks the current phenological state of a possible infection threat. The sensor creates small images which it sends to the PlantCT™ system’s backend server for further analysis.
The canopy sensor allows the user a broad view of the events around the PlantCT™ station. It can monitor the BBCH stages of the plants, the development of the leaves, the weather conditions and the quality of the completed agro-technical operations.
Used as a disease/pest warning system, a DSS helps users to determine when to apply control measures to suppress diseases and pests. The forecasting system gives predictions by using mathematical models, provides a warning message to the customer about the risk level based on these models. Risk evaluations are no substitute for decision making but they help to inform on choice in using a chemical application.
Our customers said
“Our mission is to produce top quality wines in a sustainable way. Using the disease management function we have managed to both increase our yield and reduce our environmental footprint. Knowing the exact type of risk we can plan our plant protection strategy accordingly, and defuse situations before they become an emergency. SmartVineyard has helped us steer through without any significant losses, which cannot be said of many vineyards in our area.” More customer information…
