Greeneye Technology, launches a new intelligent spraying equipment. A precision tool, garlic optimizes the use of chemical inputs in crops.
The Israeli company plans to export its technology to North America by 2022. Its first customers will be corn and soybean growers in the Midwest. Its order book is already full for 2023.
Greeneye Technology claims herbicide volume savings of around 80%, under the benevolent eye of Chinese agrochemical giant Syngenta, which is backing the company. This promise is made possible by intelligent soil reading and targeted spraying, with 95.7% accuracy, according to the manufacturer.
Nadav Bocher, CEO of Greeneye Technology, assures that his robot moves at a speed of 20km/h and reminds us that weeds cost $33 billion in lost production every year.
The robot is a combination of mechanics and artificial intelligence that allows it to assimilate data as it sprays, capturing 40 images per second and instantly calculating volume and situation requirements.
At the same time, the company is collecting valuable data on soil conditions through its first devices in service.
