PREVENTING AND MONITORING ADVERSITIES OF CROPS

THE TECHNOLOGY TO FIGHT ADVERSITIES

AGRICOLUS AWARENESS platform sends information and bulletins about the spread of phytopathologies and adversities management of crops. The system can be used in order to:

  • Create an alert system that can be used to receive geolocated information on diseases and other risks.
  • Allow specialists, administrators and other operators to share (with or without fee) news and information on outbreaking phytopathologies. News will be sent to farmers through a warning system.

 

AWARENESS is a shared platform providing organisations, associations, and farmers with:

  • Alert systems concerning phitopathology generation and spread in crops
  • Weather data from control units and sensors installed on crops
  • Tools used to share questions and doubts with experts

The system creates alerts that farmers can immediately watch on their smartphone as well.
Moreover, operators and farmers can send pictures and questions about different types of problems to experts.

EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL THANKS TO MAPS AND ALERT SYSTEMS

Agricolus Awareness supports farmers in fighting adversities. The organizations or associations can manage this platform putting several systems together, for example:

  • Insects capture through the use of traps.
  • Other data used to monitor infestations.

The farmer can add this information to weather data available on the application.

COMPARISON WITH TRADITIONAL METHODS

Many adversities such as phytopathologies are not often detected in time. This is the reason farmers have to face huge loss of product.

Being alerted at the beginning of an outbreaking phytopathology or to specific conditions that may cause its generation is very important to prevent damages.

AWARENESS provides innovative but at the same time simple alert systems to manage early the onset and spread of phytopathologies.

  • Act promptly in case of some adversities such as water risks, wilting, etc.
  • Manage phytopathologies and other adversities being supported by experts.
  • Reduce or avoid loss of product.

APPLICATION FEATURES

WEATHER DATA VISUALISATION

The application provides weather data from fixed control units or IoT sensors installed directly on involved plots. Sensors provide useful information on surface’s microclimate, and this helps to understand if a phytopathology will appear or not.

INTERFACE WITH SENSORS

The application communicates with IoT sensors installed on plots which provide useful information about soil and plants conditions depending on climate trends.

ALERTS

The system provides different types of alerts to act promptly in case of adversities.

SENDING IMAGES AND QUESTIONS TO EXPERTS
