Deep Planet, a startup from Oxford University supported by the European Space Agency, helps winemakers and growers build resiliency against effects of climate change. Deep Planet's VineSignal is a SaaS based AI platform using satellite imagery, and IoT sensor data, that helps growers with where and when to harvest.
VineSignal helps in monitoring maturity to predict optimal harvest date and maturity heat maps to help split picking and identify areas of quality to meet the needs of higher value wines. VineSignal features include vineyard health monitoring, highly accurate hands off weekly yield prediction, enhanced irrigation capability, early disease detection and soil carbon monitoring.
The clients utilising this have benefited from significant cost savings in reduced sampling and pre-harvest inspections, far more efficient and accurate intake planning, and improving quality and ROI from fruit.
