Plant protection products — better than their reputation?

The use of plant protection products is controversial in society and is strictly regulated by ever stricter requirements from the authorities. In intensive agriculture, however, the use of plant protection products is necessary to prevent diseases caused by fungi and pathogens, eating damage caused by pests or competition from weeds and weeds and to ensure crop yield. Plant protection products help to increase the yield and quality of crops and reduce the risk of crop failure for farmers. In terms of sustainability and environmental protection, they must be deployed according to damage thresholds and within the legal framework.

Increasing sustainability and optimising earnings potential

The site-specific application of plant protection products with the support of plant sensors helps farmers to always comply with the legal framework and to apply them according to the state of the inventory.

The inventory is paid live during the crossing, the required amount of plant protection is calculated immediately and applied exactly where it is needed. The rating using the ISARIA system clearly states where and how much plant protection products can be reduced. There is no risk of resistance because the sensor-based application can only be started when the required minimum quantity has been specified by the plant protection product manufacturer. As a result, the environment is sustainably protected and farmers save expensive resources without sacrificing the quality and quantity of yield potential. The site-specific application of plant protection products is therefore both economically and ecologically advantageous.
