Agriculture monitoring

Reducing the number of treatments in crops without increasing the exposure to pests can only be achieved by applying knowledge and following closely the environmental parameters that affects the epidemiological status.

We offer solutions for crops such as vineyards, olive trees, wheat, barley, tomatoes, melons, table grapes or legumes as distributors of the innovative systems by HORTA and the agrometeorological stations by TAMIC.

As an example, you can also take a look to the presentation of our mildew and powdery mildew prediction system in vineyards.

 

Objectives

  • Improve the agriculture processes.
  • Reduction of phytosanitary treatments to save costs, comply with new regulations and produce organic wine and food.
  • Efficient use of energy and water.
     

 

Solutions

  • Agrometeorological Stations by TAMIC.
    • Collect the data in the plot of ambient temperature, relative humidity, rainfall and leaf wetting (and soil moisture in cases as tomato).
    • The data is sent automatically by GPRS connection to the storage and analysis server.

    • Olive tree:
      • Infections by scab (Spilocaea oleagina); pests of olive fruit fly (Bactrocera oleae).
      • Levels of polyphenols and oil accumulation. Periods of fertilizer application.
    • Wheat:
      • Infections by powdery mildew, brown and yellow rust, septoria and fusarium.
      • Mycotoxin levels (DON); weed management; planting dose.
    • Barley:
      • Infections by powdery mildew, brown rust, Rhynchosporum, Pyrenopora and fusarium; mycotoxin levels.
      • Weed management; periods of application of nitrogen fertilizers.
    • Tomato:
      • Infections by downy mildew, alternaria, Pseudomonas syringae, Xanthomonas and powdery mildew
      • Pests of tomato fruitworm (Helicoverpa armigera Hb.); blossom end rot
    • Other crops such as melon, table grapes and legumes also available.

 

vite.net® system by HORTA

  • Indication of the level of protection of the crop by the treatments. To give this information, the weather forecast, the phenology and the composition of the product used are taken into account.
  • Integration of meteorological predictions to indicate the expected evolution of infections.
  • Estimation of water stress, risk of frost and high temperatures.
  • Database of phytosanitary treatments and fertilizers available in the market.
  • Field notebook for the registration and monitoring of all cultural activities.
  • Record of the growth of the crop.

In addition, thanks to the additional module of sustainability, the system allows controlling the ecological footprint of the crop and its impact in different aspects such as water consumption, energy consumption, the carbon footprint emitted, as well as the impact on the soil , biodiversity or human health.
