Fermata is focusing their efforts on the development of sustainable computer vision solutions for precise plant monitoring in both controlled environment agriculture and outdoor farming operations.
Similar to implementing computer vision as the new standard for quality control in manufacturing, Fermata’s Croptimus™ increases the efficiency and profitability of your farming business by dramatically reducing both scouting costs (by up to 50%) and crop losses (by up to 30%).
The Croptimus™ platform features 360º views of the grow area canopy, with augmented reality overlays that indicate exactly where specific issues are to be found. This early-detection platform reduces the amount of time and money spent on traditional scouting and enables growers to reliably mitigate issues well in advance of the point where crop loss becomes inevitable.
Croptimus™ automatically scouts for Aphids, Spider Mites, Thrips, Powdery Mildew, Bud Rot (Botrytis), Mosaic, nutrient issues, general plant health, and both mechanical and pest damage. Currently, the technology supports leafy greens, tomato seedlings, and medicinal crops, while working to expand coverage to include soft fruit and floriculture.
Early detection of incidents focuses the treatment area, increases our efficiency, and saves money. The system discovered pests and various plant anomalies numerous times before the IPM employee came in for their weekly examination. Fermata is the guardian angel of our farm!Ben Kissilevich, R&D Manager, GreenKom
