Tired of having to walk up and down your vineyard just to check how the crop is doing? With GreenView, those days are gone...
Who is Bitwise Agronomy, and what do they do?
Bitwise Agronomy, an emerging agritech company based in Tasmania, has just launched GreenView: a smart imaging and data-collection application that helps vineyard owners assess their vines' conditions and make crop management decisions at a touch of a button.
By capturing imagery through a roving camera, GreenView turns a vineyard entire plot into a virtual vineyard. It transforms each row of vines into a convenient block of images you can download right into your computer. The application arranges these images into a map so that vineyard owners can navigate through a virtual street-view of their plot.
How does GreenView help vineyards?
With GreenView, vineyards can:
GreenView also has machine learning modules that help vineyard owners get a more accurate picture of their plot's growth, health, and yield. With functionality including establishing growth trends, identifying broken posts, spotting vine diseases, measuring canopy and vine height, and calculating projected yields, viticulturists can take the guesswork out of vineyard management and act on problems before they arise.
"I work with a lot of clients in solving real-world challenges with modern-day tech; when we bought our vineyard I realised that I could build a solution to solve my own challenges as well. That's why Bitwise Agronomy's solutions are tailored to viticulturists' specific requirements - we are viticulturists too!
GreenView already has pilot setups in vineyards throughout Tasmania as well as in NZ and mainland Australia. With GreenView, these vineyards can now take better care of their vines and reduce labour costs, improve crop quality year-round, and produce the best-quality grapes to maximise their yield.
