Optimizing the application of pesticides in orchards and vineyards
Effispray is a revolutionary research project, funded through the program «Research – Create – Innovate» called upon to address the significant social challenge of optimizing pesticide application in orchards and vineyards.
It is based on the utilization of meteorological data, suggesting to farmers the ideal time for spraying, as well as the optimal settings of all technical parameters.
EffiSpray makes it possible for the average Greek producer, to implement precision farming services, increasing his production and competitiveness, regardless of the technology and age of his equipment, as it exploits the existing one.
Using EffiSpray the producers achieve:
Up to 50% reduction of the applied pesticides.
Up to 30% less fuel/energy consumption.
Less Water Needs
Up to 50% savings on the amount of water.
Up to 10%, generating additional income for producers.
Prediction of Pesticide Application
One of EffiSpray‘s innovative features, is weather forecasting combined with a precise spray time calculator, aimed to inform producers for the ideal time window of achieving optimal spraying.
EffiSpray collects data from weather stations and external weather forecasting services, such as wind speed, temperature and rainfall.
The collected weather conditions data and meteorological forecasts are analyzed by algorithms developed to calculate the ideal spraying time. As a result the user can see and choose the ideal spraying time for this day or the next 5 days, achieving the optimum spraying.
