Smart Wheat Technology

Winter wheat is planted in the fall, goes dormant during the winter and continues to grow in the spring.  Every spring, farmers and industry representatives ask, “Will my wheat be profitable?” Current wheat recommendations are based on counting the numbers of wheat tillers, which is a very time consuming and physically challenging task. Smart Wheat uses digital images and a proprietary image analysis algorithm to count the wheat tillers automatically. The decision tool will aid industry and farmers in making sound agronomic decisions.
