Sunflower and Variable Rate Applications.
A Perfect Match!

Optimizing Sunflower Cultivation: A CultiWise Approach

Sunflower cultivation represents a significant aspect of agricultural production, particularly valued for its oil and seeds. With sunflowers sown in wide rows, CultiWise’s precision agriculture techniques have been adapted to suit their growth pattern. The wide row spacing is important from the CultiWise perspective as it facilitates easier detection from a drone’s aerial view, making it ideal for variable rate applications based on remote sensing. 

Refined Sunflower Fertilization: CultiWise and Satellite-Driven Precision

Using satellite data together with soil samples, CultiWise enhances sunflower fertilization processes. We provide farmers with variable-rate nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, lime, and VRA seeding plans, incorporating soil sample analysis. This method, supported by high-resolution satellite imagery, ensures optimal nutrient delivery and the seeding rate in various field conditions.

Sunflower Success with CultiWise: Drones, Data, and Precision

In addition, CultiWise deploys drones mounted with RGB and Multispectral cameras during the sunflower’s entire lifecycle. Integrating this data with our sophisticated algorithms results in cost savings, healthier plants, and higher yields. Our system is exceptionally beneficial for sunflower crops, enabling further precise applications of herbicides, foliar fertilizers, fungicides, desiccation treatments or plant counting as needed, based on CultiWise Premium Satellite or drone imagery for even more accurate results.

Significant chemical reduction

Our innovative approach has significantly altered the herbicide usage in sunflower agriculture. Our targeted spot-spraying method results in a 40.6% decrease in total herbicide (based on previous results average). We are achieving more than 90% herbicide reduction for specific Green on Green scenarios. Beyond managing herbicides, the drone data can be used for plant counting, a critical step for confirming germination rate and decide about eventual re-seeding.

Implementing CultiWise marks a step towards more advanced and sustainable sunflower farming practices. By minimizing broadcast herbicide applications, we contribute to a future of agriculture that is both environmentally friendly and more cost-effective for farmers. Our solutions are effective in complex agricultural scenarios, consistently delivering better results through variable rates and targeted applications.
