AI used for inspecting crop health

November 25th, 2022

An AI-driven system that helps monitor and assess the health of sugarcane will help farmers protect their valuable crops and sustain productivity.
Paired with a system of soil moisture sensors, a suite of useful data such as nutritional stress, water stress and leaf diseases on sugarcane will be provided to farmers on a mobile app. This technology can also be customised and replicated for other crops in Vietnam, such as rice, fruits, vegetables, flowers, industrial crops and even other industries like forestry or aquaculture.
The project was funded by Aus4Innovation and implemented by the UOW: University of Wollongong, Australia and VIGREEN – a Vietnamese tech company. This technology has been transferred to Lam Son Sugar Company, the biggest buyer of sugarcane in Thanh Hoa, who will support farmers with the use of the technology and necessary equipment.
