We developed an intelligent weed detection system to perform a selective application of herbicides at any stage of the soybean crop growth. It allows savings up to 70% in agrochemicals according to the amount of weeds present in the lot.
At DeepAgro we do weed recognition on video to apply herbicides intelligently. We developed a recognition software that uses artificial intelligence techniques, which by means of cameras installed in the wings of the sprayers determine the exact moment in which each nozzle must be opened and closed.
Independent modules with a working width of 1.75 meters are sold, which consist of a camera, a computer and individual electrovalves for each nozzle. That allows us to modify every kind of sprayer and make an efficient control of the application of the herbicide.
The main benefit of this solution is the clear saving of herbicides. Depending on the amount of weeds present in the lot, the herbicide savings can vary between 30% and 70%, important percentages taking into account the high price of agrochemicals.
DeepAgro's potential lies in the possibility of continuing to develop artificial intelligence solutions for the farmer. From generation of weed maps, crop health, etc., to intelligently combat pests, where agrochemicals are more toxic to humans.
