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
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
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
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.
Get access to inflorescence counts on your vineyard
As growers ourselves, we know how important inflorescence count is for accurate forecasting. Our Bitwise Ag developers have been working hard to incorporate data for inflorescence into our GreenView system – and our testing phase is now underway.
Instead of counting buds during pruning you can now count at inflorescence. This means you’ll be able to more accurately predict yield as well as assess your conversion rate into actual fruit.
How to get accurate count and forecasting data on your berry farm
Trying to count and forecast the number of berries in your crop is time consuming and costly – and even after a lot of effort it’s often inaccurate. But there is a solution.
Our GreenView customers have access to accurate weekly counts at superhuman speed. The information is also broken down into different phenological stages.
It’s real time data on what’s happening in your crop and it’s changing the way that people farm.
How to measure variability in your vineyard
Trying to measure what’s happening in your vineyard is time consuming and costly – and even after a lot of effort it’s often inaccurate. But there is a solution.
Our GreenView customers have access to timely, accurate information about what’s happening in their crop and it’s changing the way that they operate their vineyards.
Blueberries: data-driven insights at every phenological stage
Every blueberry season comes with challenges. Blueberries are a labour-intensive crop and nearly impossible to count by hand.
We’re continually developing our GreenView system so we can combat the challenges with blueberries at every phenological stage.
Bitwise Ag partners with Formant to bring actionable crop yield insights to more farmers
We’re excited to announce our partnership and integration with Formant, a data platform for robotics.
The new integration will push Formant device data (video streams collected in the field) to GreenView for computer vision analysis, all in real time.
This will give farmers new access to actual count imagery and crop analysis, so they have the information they need to make data-led decisions.
Bitwise Ag + Burro – creating the farms of the future
We’ve partnered with Burro to bring growers the best in AI analysis and autonomous farming, and we’re thrilled to be selected as a Top 10 New Product by the World Ag Expo.
Measuring and managing what’s happening in your crop can be time consuming and costly, but innovations like this make a massive difference to efficiency and output.
Now growers can place a Burro in a block to assist pickers, plus use GreenView to count and identify variability at the same time. The future of farming is here!
