Innovation Equipments

Modern and specific equipments to ensure high quality data of the trials, high safety level for the field technicians and the enviromental safety.
Weather stations to support the field trials with scientific approches:
  • Complete meteo data in real-time and historical (temperature, rain, dew, wind, atmospheric pressure, radiation, air humidity, leaf wetness)
  • Implement and follow DSS and alert models for many pests to decide the best timing of application (such as vite.net and pomodoro.net)
  • Weather forecasts for the specific fields of the trials
Phytobach Biobed, is a system for a natural degradation of the solutions contaminated by PPP, in particular the remaining solutions after the applications, the washing solution of the experimental sprayers, and the solutions of the laboratory, in order to preserve the environment and avoid punctual contaminations.
Customized vans, specifically designed and equipped for a maximum safety and organization of the Field Technician, p.e. with a safe and optimal separated transport of the specimens and the products to be applied. Different vans for GLP and GEP are designed for the different purpose.
Electronic Water volume measurement guarantee a very precise volume measurement of the water for the applications in the field.
Calibration of the Sprayers. ANADIAG ITALIA is a certified company for functional checkering and calibration of the farmer sprayer equipments, following the 2009/128/CE Regulation. Those equipments are also used to check, improve and adapt the different experimental sprayers to guarantee the best efficency in the trials.
