According to Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), 40% of the world's crops can be lost every year due to various pests and diseases. This is very worrying given the increasing need for food and human population growth. Therefore, every farmer realizes the importance of ensuring that plants can grow well and optimally. Conventional identification methods for estimating plant health will be inaccurate because farmers cannot accurately identify plant densities on foot. In addition, it is not possible to count plants over large areas. Therefore, a more sophisticated plant health analysis method is needed.
Plant health analysis is used to quickly and efficiently identify the appropriate level of plant health in a particular area. The results of the analysis will make it possible to measure the damage and predict the results. This will provide detailed and precise data from the crop analysis required at each stage of planting.
For measuring plant health, our solution goes far beyond index-based analyses (like NDVI or VARI, etc.). Many phenomena cannot be measured at all with index-based analysis, and our algorithms use multiple sources and complex data pattern to see more than just color differences, as NDVI reports do by simply showing the chlorophyll levels of plants and how green an area is. But green is not always a good color in agriculture :). NDVI reports will, for example, mark green weeds are fine areas and yellow crops as problem areas (for example corn in the maturity stage). On the other hand, for Ag professionals who knows how to use and interpret vegetation indices, Agremo produces traditional or custom vegetation indices like NDVI, ExG, OSAVI, SAVI, VARI, GDVI, GLI, NDRE, etc
Pest Damage Analysis helps to identify the exact location and size of pest affected area(s). It minimizes the overall amount of inputs you plan to use and improve crop yield while maximizing the efficiency of in-field equipment. In that way, agricultural professionals save both resources and the environment as they have better control over the use of inputs. Agremo Pest Damage analysis is a fast, precise, and accurate approach to protecting plants and optimizing pesticide usage.
Pest Damage Analysis should be performed during the mid and late season as part of the regular plant and crop monitoring cycle to ensure optimal health of plants during the entire emergence and growth cycle.
Disease Detection Analysis closely examines the entire vegetated area and evaluates its current condition. This analysis provides the exact size and location of field zones affected by plant diseases caused by viruses, fungi, or bacteria. This provides you with the data you need to optimize treatment methods and take the best preventive measures. Besides, with a smart and optimal application of fungicides and pesticides, agricultural professionals minimize the environmental impact in sensitive areas.
Although mid-season and late-season are ideal periods for performing disease detection analysis, it is best to include it in your regular plant and crop monitoring cycle to ensure your plants stay healthy throughout the growth cycle.
