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.
