Plant Growth Regulator(PGR) Real-Time VRA

PGR is used to modify plant growth so as to suppress or promote various growth characteristics, thereby maximizing yield potential.

Plant Growth Regulator(PGR) Real-Time VRA

Of the numerous factors affecting the efficiency of PGR, including plant absorption properties and weather conditions, the most important is the ability to deliver the optimal amount of PGR to each plant. By optimizing applications, excessive vegetative growth can be inhibited whenever necessary, without compromising growth in areas which have not yet reached their potential.

Augmenta PGR-VRA applies a recommended dose of PGR intelligently. This allows the reduction of waste and input costs, while maximizing yield potential. Because the Augmenta System is camera-based, it uniquely uses computer vision techniques and dynamic algorithms to understand varying plant biomass within a given field. It does this by creating a vegetation index to generate its own on-going PGR prescription map. This is then used to control an actuated sprayer and automatically apply appropriate amounts of PGR in real time and in a single pass.

The Augmenta System is an unobtrusive plug n’ play retrofit system that is mounted on the cabin roof of any ordinary tractor or self-propelled spreader or sprayer. It uses ISOBUS or other OEM specific protocols to control VRA machinery and utilizes a built-in GPS to determine location. A 3G/4G cellular network connection allows cloud connectivity. The system also includes an integrated wireless Augmenta Tablet for in-cabin operator control and the Augmenta Web Portal for operational tracking and analytics, financial reports, record keeping etc. 

While in operation, the Augmenta System is not only able to recognize the productivity potential of different field areas, but its cameras can also detect anomalies such as rocky or waterlogged regions. Unlike active sensors detecting chlorophyll reflectance which would wastefully apply more fertilizer in such areas, the Augmenta System reduces the amount accordingly. Furthermore, it auto-calibrates to compensate for changing light conditions during the day.

The Augmenta System can be used on all major crop types such as wheat, canola, and cotton. Moreover, it is multi-functional and future-proof using over-the-air software updates instead of hardware updates to unlock new features as they are developed. Aside from N-VRA, it currently offers Harvest Aid Defoliant and PGR VRA operations. New services are constantly being developed, including Green on Brown selective spot spraying.

Augmenta case studies

Augmenta Case Study in Australia

The Augmenta System is designed to optimize inputs and reduce waste, thereby promoting sustainability. It is also capable of increasing uniformity, especially when field and crop conditions vary greatly. Because of its ability to both reduce input costs and improve total harvest sales, it allows farmers to enjoy significantly better financial returns.
