‘GreenView’ Crop Insight Technology
About the Technology
Bitwise Agronomy’s ‘GreenView’ system uses imagery collected from Go-Pro cameras to produce maps showing fruit counts and ripeness stages in berries and other small crops. The system assists growers with managing crop variability, improving labour efficiency and increasing crop forecast accuracy.
