ADDED VALUE FOR THE PRODUCER
PHS allows for more effective pest and disease prevention, with lower intervention costs and significant environmental benefits.
It is based on the analytics-as-a-service (AaaS) paradigm. Provides an online platform to support event management with automation of information flows and governance. Allows faster mitigation of pest and disease risk in open field crops.
It is in line with the European Union (EU) guidelines for Agriculture 4.0. It contributes to the competitiveness and profitability of the sector by providing innovative technologies in monitoring, control and analysis services that facilitate decision making related to the health status of the crop, regardless of the size of the field or type of crop.
Through PHS Marketplace the producer benefits from the following services
Georeferencing of parcels. Surveying services.
By mapping the topography of the plot, spraying drones apply the product with great precision, greater economy and agility;
Diagnosis and follow-up. Diagnostic service and monitoring of the evolution of plant health status.
The farmer can have a drone in his field that performs, in autonomous mode, diagnostic flights supervised by a certified pilot who guarantees the quality of the service.
Treatment of diseases and pests. Spraying service.
The grower can have a spraying drone on the ground for precision interventions, with a direct impact on disease or pest risk areas. Flights are supervised by a certified pilot.
The platform will allow the farmer to have an integrated view of the crop status, including accurate information on the action plan to mitigate the risk of pest and disease incidence.
HPDRONES, as project leader, is responsible for coordinating all partners involved, using the best solutions for data capture and processing.
It is also responsible for managing the development of the platform with the experience gained in previous projects, as well as feedback from the partnerships developed with the entities.
