As the global population increases rapidly there are major concerns for food security. Though we are doing agriculture for ages, the farmers are posing the threat of pests and diseases damaging the quality and quantity of the crops.

Through the decades of the green revolution, we have increased the production of crops through the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers. However, growers are still facing the threat of the devastating effects of pests and diseases. As technology has evolved and news tools come in handy to ease up the agriculture operations for the farmers and increase their yields by mitigating crop losses. These new precision tools especially (artificial intelligence) are acting as a new weapon for the growers: precision agriculture and digital agriculture.

Few croptimus testimonials of the tool:

“As a former head of R&D at Biobest in Israel, I’ve seen a lot of pest and disease solutions come and go, but Fermata’s has changed how I currently work as a crop consultant. Instead of wasting time identifying the source of the problem, now I can focus on mitigation, and finding the root causes — saving my clients both substantial time and money.”
