Pest management in agriculture is a topic of high economic and environmental importance. Errors in problem identification, selection and application of protection products lead to crop losses, soil loading and increased expenses. Overuse of such products weakens plant root and immune systems and reduces concentrations of essential plant nutrients in the soil. Consequently, the cultivation productivity is reduced in the long-term aspect.
CropDiagnosis is a mobile application that changed the way farmers deal with pests and other cultivation problems. By answering an intelligent questionnaire, the grower reaches a diagnosis in minutes, chooses the optimal chemical product and receives personalised application instructions.
Currently, CropDiagnosis is launched for Android devices in the Google Play Store in Greek and English languages. It helps a farmer deal with possible problems in tomato, olive and cereal crops.
Farmers and agriculturists have been enthused with CropDiagnosis, since they can:
- Prevent errors that cost time and money
- Stop being exposed to chemicals for no reason
- Maximize farm's productivity
- Protect the environment
