At Root Applied Sciences, we are building tools to warn farmers about the presence of fungal pathogens in their fields in real-time. The insight that we provide eliminates the need to overspray fungicides by enabling farmers to spray only when there is a real threat. The reduction in unnecessary fungicide spraying results in enormous cost-savings, increased yield, and numerous benefits to farm workers, consumers, and the environment.
The information you need without more tools to learn or more work to do. Our fully automated, in-field sensors can send pathogen alerts directly to your phone or upload automatically to the dashboard you already use.
"Based on the strength of the timely data we received from Root, we were able to spray far less than we ever thought possible with an organic program."

"If you are a really high pressure vineyard, you could definitely utilize this technology to help save money and help as an early warning system for when you have mildew coming into your vineyard. On the other side, if you are a vineyard that rarely gets mildew, you can really use this to extend your intervals and cut out passes during the season."
