Precision agriculture innovations aiming to streamline production and optimize performance are expected to compel more attention in the future, as leaving fruit and vegetable supplies vulnerable to diseases contributes to imperiled food security.

The Hungarian grape protection technology company which ambitions to turn microclimatic and organic data into plant disease-forecasts to end overuse of pesticides in agriculture has achieved great success by getting 1 million Euros from the European Union’s largest R&D fund known as Horizon 2020.

The funding is expected to be used for scaling-up the fully operational and marketed SmartVineyard system by developing precision sensors and adapting the monitoring system for additional plant cultures.
“Agriculturists frequently base their decisions of when to spray on intuitions and are, understandably, overly cautious, leading to a significant overuse of pesticides.” Says Csaba Arendas, CEO of SmartVineyard. “We strongly believe that unlocking the power of very qualitative and quantitative agro-data sets could revolutionize plant protection activities.”

Novelty of the technology had already been recognized last year in Intel's Global Challenge, where the innovation was ranked among the top 10 out of 20000 applicants at the prestigious Silicon Valley contest.

About SmartVineyard

SmartVineyard solution (smartvineyard.com) intends to address the challenges of grape protection directives by allowing remote plant disease monitoring and comprehensive decision support with on-site sensors an intuitive, web based user interface. Automated predictions of fungal diseases, and microclimate monitoring supports agriculturists in producing the highest quality crop with minimalized yield loss. Due to a network of compact measuring devices on cultivated areas, viticulturists are armed with precise, individualized data and recommendations and helped avoiding intuition based decision. All measured data and relevant information can be accessed on an ultimate agro-intelligence dashboard. Accurate, real time information helps farmers decide when and where to spray and neither its installation nor its utilization requires any specialist technical know-how or experience. By applying the solution, viticulturists could stop superfluous use of expensive and environmentally harmful agents while streamlining performance. The solution is already commercialized and currently used by dozens of viticulturists in Europe.
