Measurements of trait characteristics for scientific research, breeding and chemical trials purposes is typically a subjective process, performed by humans on the ground. Plant protection research companies conduct thousands of multi-plot experiments annually, and they need solutions to improve and automate their workflows in field to improve accuracy and traceability. UAV solutions have proven to be a more objective and reliable way to perform frequent and standardized analyses. These solutions, produced by Delair, are operational and successfully deployed by many seed breeder customers worldwide. APODE aims to demonstrate how plant protection research companies can increase productivity by using drone data to measure crop response to chemicals. The focus will be on potato blight and will involve Delair as the drone and data processing platform supplier, Geoinspect as the professional drone flight supplier, and Eurofins Agroscience Services as the plant protection reserch company.
