Treatment of cow parsnip with herbicides is effective during the period of active weed growth in May-June and then in early autumn. To detect the cow parsnip accumulations at early growth stages, the system by 2050.digital implements multi- and hyperspectral survey and special image analysis programs making active use of artificial intelligence and machine-aided learning technologies. Subsequently, the treated areas are surveyed to assess the effectiveness of herbicides usage. If necessary, spraying drones can re-treat the remaining weed specimens.
Treatment maps with data on Heracleum Sosnovsky growth density are drawn up based on satellite information and surveys performed by unmanned systems for accurate calculation of the required agrochemicals amounts and the intensity of treatment. These data are automatically transmitted to the spraying drones control system.
In general, the applied set of technologies allows saving 20-30% of funds spent on agrochemicals, performing weed control in hard-to-reach areas, and identifying areas requiring additional treatment.
To reduce the environmental load, the system developed by 2050.digital provides for the use of effective herbicides with directional effect, which allows saving most of the vegetation, while selectively destroying weeds.
