Who knows exactly how your crop is developing? Metos knows.
CropVIEW offers a remote high-resolution view of your crops, fields and orchards so you can monitor your crops as they grow.
REMOTELY MONITOR YOUR FIELDS, CROPS AND ORCHARDS THROUGH THIS TIME-SAVING PHOTO DEVICE
CropVIEW® uses a camera system with integrated electronics (camera, modem, power source with solar panel) to monitor the growth and development of your crops. Installed in the field where it’s needed most, the device runs efficiently on a combination of solar and battery power.
A 10 megapixel camera takes periodic high-resolution pictures of your field, crop or fruit and automatically uploads the images (through a mobile network) to the FieldClimate platform where results can be accessed on computer or mobile devices. Data is available in real-time and can be stored for further analysis. For apples only, photos are analyzed with automatic detection of fruits as well as measurement of fruit diameters.
When installing your CropVIEW® station, you need to take into consideration the sun position – make sure that your device is not facing directly into the sun at the time photos are scheduled to be taken.
HOW MANY STATIONS DO I NEED?
You may need one device per growing site, or if there are different varieties or crops at the growing site, you may want more devices if you wish to monitor them all. The CropVIEW comes in several variations (Panorama, Tele, Dual and Stero) to make it flexible enough to use in farm fields, research plots, crop canopies, orchards and more.
CropVIEW saves you time during your busy season. With this powerful high-resolution camera system, you no longer have to walk your fields to see what’s happening in your crop.
