Charles Veys is founder and CEO of Fotenix, developers of a tractor-mounted sensor that uses manipulated colours of light combined with embedded artificial intelligence to detect plant status, such as nutrient levels or disease.
Time is central to how we operate in the world of agriculture, as our cloud-enabled cameras create a digital twin of a plant which is a four-dimensional snapshot (shape + content) in time, and can be rewound or fast-forwarded when looking to study and improve the understanding and detection of new pests and disease.
“An ability to manipulate and revisit outbreaks is crucial to improving our scouting service which enables optimised timing for pesticide application both conventional and biological.”
Charles is a delegate at REAP 2021.
REAP 2021: Changing Time(s) for Agriculture – 10th November 2021
Imagine a world where agriculture is not constrained by time. The ability to manage and manipulate time is increasing and REAP 2021 will explore the advances in technology and breakthroughs in science that is making this possible.
REAP brings together people from across the agri-tech ecosystem who believe that innovation is the engine for change. The conference bridges the gap between producer needs and technology solutions and showcases exciting agri-tech start-ups.
