Optimising yields with Phytech

  • 169

Phytech is an agricultural app that uses deep learning to track crop growth and provide real-time recommendations for irrigation and nutrient management. The app aims to help farmers optimise yields and reduce water use by providing personalised insights based on crop health and environmental conditions.

Phytech’s system consists of a hardware device called PlantBeat, which is installed on the plant and measures key physiological parameters such as stem diameter, moisture content and temperature. The data collected by the PlantBeat is then transferred to the Phytech application, where it is analysed using machine learning algorithms to provide the farmer with actionable information.

One of the key benefits of Phytech is its ability to provide real-time recommendations for irrigation and nutrient management. By continuously monitoring plant health and environmental conditions, the application can identify when a plant is under stress and provide recommendations for addressing the problem. For example, if a plant is showing signs of water stress, the app can recommend increasing irrigation or adjusting the irrigation schedule.

Phytech also offers predictive analytics to help farmers optimize crop yields. By analyzing historical data and current environmental conditions, the application can predict future crop growth and provide recommendations to maximize yields. This can be particularly useful for farmers who grow crops with long growing seasons or who are exposed to unpredictable weather conditions.

In addition to irrigation and nutrient management, Phytech can also be used to monitor crop health and detect early signs of disease or pest infestations. By continuously monitoring plant physiology, the application can identify changes in plant growth patterns that may indicate the presence of a problem. This can help farmers to take proactive measures to address the problem before it becomes a more serious problem.

Phytech is particularly suited for use in water scarce regions where farmers may face water use restrictions or limited water supplies. With real-time recommendations for irrigation, the app can help farmers optimize water use and reduce wastage. This can not only improve crop yields, but also help conserve water resources.

Phytech has been successfully applied to a wide range of crops, including fruit trees, vineyards and row crops. In one case study, Phytech was used to monitor almond trees in California’s Central Valley. By providing real-time recommendations for irrigation, the application increased yields by 18% and reduced water use by 20%.

Overall, Phytech is a powerful tool for farmers who want to optimize yields and reduce water use. With real-time recommendations for irrigation and nutrient management, the app can help farmers improve crop health and reduce wastage. Predictive analytics can also be used to optimize crop yields and help farmers make informed decisions about planting and harvesting.

Although Phytech is a relatively new application, its potential to revolutionize agriculture is significant. As farmers worldwide look for ways to improve their productivity and sustainability, Phytech is likely to play an increasingly important role in the future of agriculture.
