Project: Market Feasibility Study - High Precision Greenhouse Farming - MVP

Thema's:
VH 7: Duurzame landbouw, water- en voedselvoorziening, VH 4: Slimme technologie en materialen
Doorlooptijd:
van 1 augustus 2018 tot 31 maart 2019
Our mission is to increase the productivity of Dutch greenhouses. Even the most modern greenhouses still suffer from 10% to 25% loss of crop due to pests and diseases (Pimentel, 2012). Our autonomous flying platform can reduce crop loss by regular scouting while avoiding excessive cost of manual labour.

With one drone we can scout one hectare of greenhouse per hour, providing detailed information about environmental parameters and crop health, quality and quantity. In comparison traditional manual scouting methods scout a single hectare per day.

As a spin-off from RAAK.MKB006.017 HiPerGreen, we are aiming for a fast track solution to a single pest control problem: Fusarium in orchids, and validate a Minimum Viable Product for use in the Greenhouse.
