The core problem– pests appear unexpectedly in the field and therefore it is important to detect the first location as early as possible to prevent crop loss. If the outbreak of pests is controlled in the initial phase, the cost of pesticides will be significantly lower, which will save money.
Currently, pests are detected with a time delay when the farmer goes scouting the field. On average, only a few places in the field can be inspected, even after 5-7 days. Therefore, it is usually not possible to identify pests until they have already expanded significantly. This, in turn, has already had a significant effect on yields. CAFA AgMRS provides an automated overview of each field with a delay of up to 1 day, allowing a quick response, reducing both crop losses and the financial cost of plant protection products.
