Smartomizer - Intelligent air blast for speciality crops protection reducing pesticides needs and fuel consumption
The concept of the Smartomizer is composed by an intelligent air blast for specialty crops protection (citrus, fruit trees, vegetables) connected to the cloud/digital agricultural management tool (Specialty Crops Platform).
Smartomizer is a pro-active system due in sends real time warnings in case any of the critical parameters are not correct in order to avoid mistakes which can entail the proliferation of the plants’ pests and diseases. This technology provides real traceability of the treatments in order to improve the food security standards, and is an important BI (Business Intelligence) tool which enables the agricultural companies to boost their profitability by performance control to make better decisions. Smartomizer’s spraying technology automatically adapts vertical crop sprayer parameters to tree dimensions and plague levels which reduces the losses into the environment by 47,5%. Supposing that the Smartomizer KPI of 47.5% total pesticide reduction becomes a wide spread reality, means that 210 million kg pesticides could be saved globally per year, with 56.7 million kg per year saved in the EU alone. Furthermore, these sprayers reduce tractor diesel fuel consumption by over 55%. This sprayer system is capable of gathering and monitoring all important spraying data which directly affects the quality and productivity of the specialty crops.
