CROP-SCAN™ is a teledetection service complemented with the ability to receive advice from expert agronomists, thereby providing farmers with rapid, highly precise information about hydric stress, vigor, chlorophyll contents and the photosynthesis efficiency of all individual plants in a plot.
Wheat’s great advantage is that it can be adapted to grow in very different environments and in temperate regions of all continents. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), production of this cereal, which is almost exclusively reserved for human consumption, has tripled over the last 40 years. It is estimated that each year around 100 kg are produced per inhabitant.
While the origin of rice is in Asia, it is nowadays cultivated in wetlands and river deltas worldwide, being the second most cultivated cereal on a global level. Furthermore, it is a fundamental part of the diet of many countries. There are more than 10,000 known variants, with the Bomba variant the one best known in Spain. The most common diseases affecting rice are those caused by fungus infections-their incidence and severity may cause the loss of up to 70% of crops. This makes it a prerogative to take preventive measures during the entire cultivation cycle.
