Tree shape and foliage volume map guided precision orchard sprayer

Objective

Matching spray volume and direction to tree sizes and shapes can reduce chemical application, thus reducing operational costs and environmental pollution, by 30% and more. A tree-specific variable volume precision orchard sprayer, guided by foliage shape and volume map is proposed. Tree maps will be obtained by a novel 3D aerial survey method, converted from defence applications, and will be incorporated as a layer into a plant protection and orchard management GIS database. The sprayer guidance module will control spray amount and direction according to the foliage structure map. The supporting GIS database will be capable to monitor infestation, utilize plant protection management and decision support systems and to keep automatically detailed records of spray applications, from the guidance system feedback.
