THE PLANTCT™ SYSTEM IS
A site specific management system which continuously monitors the plants. The device’s gathering and diagnostic system collects crop, weather data and information about pests to alert farmers of plant diseases and other conditions that can cause crop damage and provides recommendations on how to act to prevent the disease.
annual yield loss amounts to 30-40 % of total crop production in general
By using the pest detection and frost prediction the PlantCTTM can reduce the impact of harmful weather events on crops and helps the user to intervene in time. Also, the PlantCTTM System functions in an environmentally friendly way by saving you money in decreasing the use of pesticides and forecasting possible crop loss events.
WHAT PLANTCT™ STATIONS DO
Measuring weather data: temperature, humidity, leaf wetness, precipitation and sunshine intensity.
They synchronize data; communicate with each other in case of multiple stations.
After capturing data, stations send it to to the servers to be processed.
Devices locate their own positions, detect and report damage and theft.
PlantCT™ has a special edition: SmartVineyard™ developed for grapevine - which already has a large number of statisfied customers.
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. – L.P. , Organic producer, Slovakia
Main features of PlantCT™
PEST AND SPORE DETECTION
The PlantCTTM System is able to trap the airborne pathogen spores, determines their number in the airspace and analyses what kind of pathogens will infect the plantation. It can also capture members of insect species, calculate their critical phenological stage and determine when a chemical treatment is required.
CANOPY AND LEAF SURFACE SENSORS
The leaf sensor can check any lesions or symptoms, or even track the leaf in it’s developing stages while the canopy camera lets you observe any mechanical injury on the foliage, the phenological stages and any nutrient and water deficiency.
FROST PREDICTION AND DETECTION
The PlantCTTM has a highly sophisticated and advanced GPS-based weather forecast system, providing you with real operational support. The prediction data are hardened by on-site measurements to maximize precision.
PlantCT™ System provides a reliable prognosis about plant disease and pest infestation so daily routines in crop production are made easier.
With the PlantCT™ system you can make sure you only irrigate your fields when it’s necessary while reducing the wastage of water and saving you money.
REAL TIME WEATHER PREDICTION
As weather conditions can vary between plant areas, we are able to monitor them with real time weather forecast notifications at all microclimatic conditions.
