The Problem

Pesticides & hazardous chemicals drift

Global climate

change

More than 75%

of the spray is

L O S T

Higher amounts and more frequent use of pesticides

Shorter and 
warmer winters

Growing pest

resistance

Higher survival

rates of pests

Exposure

Rapid urbanization

of the countryside

Cities sprawl into

the rural ares

Exposure of drift - negtively affects neighboring residents, growers, and crops

 

Our Solution

DriftSense minimizes the loss of sprayed pesticides, and helps growers to save resources, maximize yields, and comply with relevant regulations. We prevent the corruption of crops. DriftSense makes sure that people in the fields and their vicinity, as well as the natural environment, remain safe. Our solutions are based on state-of-the-art technologies in analytical chemistry, meteorological and dispersion modeling science.

Integrating the above-mentioned unique inputs into our algorithmic models, can precisely locate their source, analyze their trajectories, and optimize the spraying application with a "tailor-made" approach.

The insights gained from our analyses would help growers make decisions based on science, rather than on "hunches".

 
 

Why Us?

Real-Time Data

We provide our customers with powerful insights, based by live data from our systems, 24/7, accessible from anywhere, including predictive analytics.

Technology

State-of-the-art, specialized integration of validated dispersion modeling, alongside ML algorithms.

Our chemists, agronomists, data scientists, and environmental policy experts, all work together to produce data which fits your needs.
