Vultus introduces new service for more effective disease control in potato crops

三月 28, 2024

Vultus AB launches a new service together with AR Tarim, part of Agrico and Europlant, for earlier detection of diseases in potato crops. The service enables improved precision in pesticide management and contributes to increased yields.

In collaboration with AR Tarim, part of Agrico and Europlant, Vultus presents a new service developed for early detection of diseases in potato crops. The service is added to the company's offer for decision-making advice from sowing to harvest for potatoes. 

By analyzing weather and field data, Vultus models can predict the risk of disease outbreaks and pests with great accuracy. The detection system enables rapid identification of both fungal diseases such as late and early blight.

The service is designed to be proactive, giving growers tools to keep infection levels low. The insights also enable growers to use pesticides in a more precise and therefore sustainable way. 

Per Karlsson, CEO of Vultus:

"With our expertise in precision farming and AR Tarim's field data, we have developed and now offer a service to predict and control diseases in potato crops. The service is designed to facilitate early decisions for disease control and enable growers to use their pesticides more precisely and efficiently."

"This is naturally a great tool for potato farmers across the globe. All our existing customers can access and use the service immediately."

"This first version will be further developed with alarms on anomalies and deviations from the expected state at any given time during the growth phase. 'Anomality Detection' will be implemented on all our analysis services for potato farmers, irrigation, fertilizer, yield, starch levels etc, in the coming releases.

Ekrem Suad Sadak, CEO of AR TARIM:

"We are pleased to work with Vultus to develop this service for early detection of diseases in potato crops. By giving growers access to decisions early on, the service can significantly facilitate the decision-making process for disease control. This not only leads to more efficient use of pesticides but also contributes to reduced environmental impact and optimized productivity."
