How our customers use our forecasting tools

How our customers use our forecasting tools

The reality of modern farming means growers need to understand human factors, market influences, and logistic behaviours in order to accurately forecast. The example we’re showing today highlights the discrepancy between forecasted blueberry picking amounts and actual picks due to human decision-making in the field.

Growing degree days vs calendar days for forecasting

Growing degree days vs calendar days for forecasting

If you want to increase the accuracy of yield predictions it’s crucial to understand the importance of growing degree days (GDD) vs calendar days. By using GDD we can properly understand how many heat units it takes to get to each phenological stage.

New app for instant real-time counts in the field

New app for instant real-time counts in the field

GreenView Go app is a count and scouting tool that complements the full GreenView system. It offers instant counts using our advanced AI, as well as the option to add grower input to better understand accuracy, ripening curve and forecasting. The app is a powerful tool for enhancing the GreenView system’s desktop and dashboard tools.

Revolutionising agriculture: how technology and AI drive the future of farming

Revolutionising agriculture: how technology and AI drive the future of farming

For decades, farmers have relied on experience, intuition, and manual labour to manage their crops. However, there are always limitations to human capabilities and a significant expense to hiring skilled labour. These challenges are only magnified by a growing population and increased pressure on food production and sustainability.

In the ever-evolving landscape of agriculture, harnessing the power of technology has become essential to meet the growing demands of our rapidly changing world. Advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and computer vision hold the key to transform traditional farming practices and pave the way for smarter, more efficient and sustainable agriculture.

How to count berries at superhuman speed & reduce wastage

How to count berries at superhuman speed & reduce wastage

Nothing is quite as satisfying as watching GreenView AI counting berries at superhuman speed!

The average human can count 4-8 blueberry plants a day. GreenView can easily count over 5,000 plants a day!

Our technology can see like humans – but more accurately, more consistently and at a superhuman speed. Whether it’s blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or blackberries – our AI will count more plants, be more consistent in approach and much faster.

How to manage variability in your vineyard with AI

How to manage variability in your vineyard with AI

We solve a lot of problems in vineyards throughout the season, but most of them are focused on variability.

Vineyard variability starts right at the beginning, at the pruning season. Most growers want to know their pruning quality, identify any underperforming areas, and get a sense of the yield to come.

Common vineyard problems: how to quantify damage with GreenView

Common vineyard problems: how to quantify damage with GreenView

Many common vineyard problems can be solved when you have the right information to manage your vines.

GreenView measures and maps vineyard variability and helps growers get accurate counts at superhuman speed to improve forecasting. It can also count at different phenological stages, monitor your grapes across the whole growing season, and identify underperforming vines so you can target treatments.

GreenView calculator: forecast your berries by phenological stage

GreenView calculator: forecast your berries by phenological stage

Our new GreenView calculator has expanded functionality across all of our berry categories – strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. We’ve taken a lot of customer feedback on board, tested, redesigned and developed a calculator for both long term forecasting and week-by-week forecasting.

We know it’s not as simple as “one day it’s a strawberry flower and the next it’s an immature green” – our new calculator helps combat the ambiguity of berries as they morph from one phenological stage to the next.
