The ultimate moment

Pesticide timing science simplified into a click

DriftSense has developed the first evidence-based prediction tool for growers, to know exactly when to make one of their most critical decisions: when to apply pesticide to each plot for optimal precision.

This software-only solution leverages advanced data science to calculate the full range of factors impacting spray results, distilling a wealth of variables into one crucial choice. Knowing the ultimate spray time is a game changer for growers’ yield and cost-effectivity, as well as environment protection.

Inaccurate pesticide application leads to huge losses and damages. Spraying off target results from suboptimal timing and reliance on pest-driven strategies, and it’s worsening due to over/underdose plus shorter winters due to climate change, leading to pest resistance.

DriftSense’s Technology: A Comprehensive Wealth of Variables Distilled into One Crucial Decision

DriftSense offers the first pesticide-driven strategy, leveraging advanced data science to calculate the comprehensive range of factors impacting spray results:

Input: A wealth of variables

Drifsense’s platform analyzes not only all relevant meteorology, but also the chemical properties and regulatory data pertaining to the particular types of pesticides used by the grower, as well as their specific spraying gear with its implications for dispersion.

Analysis: Proprietary Algorithms in Service of Growers

This robust, complex range of variables all impacting where the spray will actually land, is fed into proprietary state-of-the-art algorithms, which calculate their cumulative and inter-dependent influences.

Output: When to Spray

This deep science is conducted behind the scenes, so growers receive a simple, user-friendly interface helping them make one of their most strategic decisions – when to spray – exceptionally better informed.
Driftsense is a technology platform which calculates the complex optimal timing of pesticide application on behalf of growers, so they can make the best-informed choice as to when to spray for optimal results. This results in game-changing increase in cost effectiveness for growers and environmental benefits for all. Driftsense’s B2B SaaS offers per acre/crop/year plans, increasing the bottom line, reducing cost of doing business and goods, uniquely customized to each crop and every stage of growth.
