AGEYE Technologies enables Plant Stress Monitoring

All the qualities that would normally be associated with a good farmer are slowly being transferred to machines via artificial intelligence-based solutions. These solutions aim to be as good as, if not better than, the best farmer. This means a careful examination of soil, weather, crops, and processes while continuously improving or rectifying any abnormalities. For example, changing soil or weather conditions can stress crops and threaten yield. To this end, stressed and disease-ridden crops have to be immediately separated to minimize contamination with healthy plants.

US-based startup AgEYE Technologies develops intelligent software and sensor solutions to improve the quality, predictability, and profitability of farming. The startup combines machine vision, AI, and machine learning (ML) to detect pathogens and contamination for plant varieties much faster than humans. AgEYE Technologies’ solutions save time and reduce the manual labor involved in scouting the farm for plant diseases and abnormalities.

HelioPas AI offers AI-powered Solutions for Drought Intensity Tracking

Unlike floods or wildfires, droughts do not occur overnight. Prolonged shortages in water supply, less-than-average rainfall, level and quality of surface water, and groundwater recharge contribute to droughts. It is, therefore, vital for farmers to understand the situation their land is in. Depending on the severity of the condition, they can take various measures to mitigate yield losses caused by droughts.

HelioPas AI is a German startup that provides solutions to assist farmers to deal with droughts in an informed manner. The startup uses field data and runs actuarial analytics to inform farmers in regard to drought insurance planning. Further, HelioPas AI’s soil moisture monitoring system allows farmers to control irrigation as well as fight mildew and other threats related to moisture and dryness. The startup also offers yield forecasting services based on the soil moisture data of the farm.

Wolkus Technology Solutions provides Field Intelligence

In the agriculture industry worldwide, the use of artificial intelligence technology is gaining traction rapidly. However, unlike in richer countries, agricultural holdings per farmer are significantly smaller in poorer regions. While this poses a challenge for automation through robotics, it is beneficial for automated monitoring as fewer devices are needed to capture all farm data.

Indian startup Wolkus Technology Solutions uses affordable AI-powered sensors to provide horticulture farmers with real-time data and insights. The startup’s platform, Fasal, provides remote access to all information via multiple mediums. Moreover, it generates predictions for resource requirements including irrigation, sprays, fertigation, and other preventive measures.

OneSoil offers Satellite Imaging & Analysis for Farms

The European Union makes data collected from the Sentinel satellites available to the public through its Copernicus program. Using this open data offers great potential to make agricultural processes more efficient. That is why AgriTech startups convert this information into high-quality solutions based on AI and machine learning, advancing agriculture 4.0.

Belarusian startup OneSoil provides a suite of solutions to assist agribusinesses using satellite data from the Copernicus program. The startup detects cloud types, allocates field boundaries, identifies several crops in the middle of a season, and determines a plant’s sowing date as well as its phenophase. This data informs farmers about their land and soil conditions, when and how much to fertilize, scouts data from the fields, and more.

Root AI facilitates Indoor Farming Automation

The ability to create perfect conditions for crops to grow allows agriculturalists to farm in indoor settings. In addition, labor shortages, distressed soil quality, and depleted water resources have all made indoor farming more viable for the future. While artificial intelligence is still mostly developed for outdoor agriculture, the insights they generate are amplified in controlled environments.

Root AI is a US-based startup that builds automated robotic solutions for indoor farming. Its vision-based AI systems determine if the crops are ripe, spoilt, or growing. Once a ripe crop is detected, the Root AI’s patent-pending fruit grippers navigate through the complex vines and tangles to pick the ripe fruit without disturbing the rest of the plants. Besides, Root AI’s robots feature 3D sensors that allow them to navigate through the farm in an optimal manner.
