Carbon Bee AgTech (CBeeAgTech) is the agricultural subsidiary of Carbon Bee (CBee). Created in December 2017 and based in Drôme in Saint-Marcel-les-Valence, this French startup has now become a young innovative company. It offers agronomic imaging solutions for plant health.
Its multidisciplinary team consists of a core group of agronomists, engineers and researchers who guarantee a strong link with the issues in the field.
It works closely with the Precision Electronics Design Office and the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory of the parent company, Carbon Bee.
The challenge of Carbon Bee AgTech is to offer solutions that accurately measure plant health and help farmers in their transition using digital technologies.
Carbon Bee AgTech uses the solution developed by Carbon Bee: a hyperspectral sensor coupled with software based on Deep Learning to interpret plant images. This solution allows to identify diseases and stress on plants providing:
- Saving time and efficiency in disease control and weed management,
- A reduction in the use of inputs with a better knowledge of the health status of crops,
- Detection of diseases in the near infrared field with extreme accuracy,
- Better traceability and predictability of crops.
The technology used makes it possible to obtain better plant characterization to reduce inputs and improve production quality.
