Computers to count crops
Crop yield estimation is a central function in fruit production since it determines the part of the crop that is suitable for consumption and commercialisation. Yield estimation, which is crucial for apple production, needs to be reliable, quick and cost-effective. Today, fruit is counted manually by farm workers. Not only does this take a lot of time, but accuracy cannot be guaranteed especially for large yields. The EU-funded AGERPIX project is developing a solution based on artificial intelligence algorithms. It aims to offer reliable and fast predictions while considerably reducing operation and management costs. It provides growers with information on the size and quality of fruits and yield production. It calculates the labour force needed and offers logistical planning.
