KEEP THE PLANTS HEALTHY
USING
ENVIRONMENTAL SENSORS
AND PREDICTION MODELS

Appearance of different pathogens and pests can seriously damage the crops causing quality and yields decreasing. Every year, farmers use tons of pesticides and spend enormous amount of money trying to save the crops and control population of pests and pathogens. Still, they lose the yields and profit as well. For effective pesticides usage, it is crucial to define the right time to take the right measurements. 

Monitoring the environmental parameters (such as air temperature, air humidity, rainfall and leaf wetness) and combining the data with prediction models and agricultural expertise, alertNET provides easy-to-use instructions to define timely actions.

alertNET enables farmers to always be one step ahead the pest and disease appearance.

Combining advance prediction models with micro-climate information in real time (air temperature, air humidity, leaf wetness and precipitation), alertNET defines the ideal time to use pesticides and what type of pesticides should be used in order to increase the yields and quality of the crops.

 


 

 

Field measurement

Portable and energy independent devices providing real-time air temperature, air humidity, leaf wetness and precipitation measurements are involved in alertNET service. Cloud based infrastructure enables data storage, analytics retrieval and visualization.

 

Advance algorithm and outcome

Forecasting temperature and rainfall has an important role in defining the exact time of irrigation thus preventing irrigation at times when rain is expected as well as delay when the temperature is high.

 

Prediction models available for: grey mould disease (Botrytis cinerea), downy mildew of grape (Plasmopara viticola), grape black rot (Guignardia bidwellii), powdery mildew of grape (Uncinula necator), grapevine moth (Lobesia botrana), fire blight of apple (Erwinia amylovora), apple scab disease (Venturia inequalis).
