Automated Disease Sensor

The BioScout sensor conducts 24/7 automated air sampling in conjunction with tracking comprehensive environmental/weather data. Analysed in real-time, through accurate disease identification and machine learning, this information is provided via a client dashboard and alerts, which allows them to respond accordingly based on their unique disease thresholds. Ultimately, taking the guessing game out of airborne disease management and allowing customers to reduce spray costs, optimise spray timings to increase yields and see the impact of spray logs in real-time.

Pricing model

Hardware is priced per unit per year on a lease model. Option to provide discount with economies of scale. Future scope to include specific subscription service to agronomy consultation.

Installation process

Units are installed by BioScout field crew (vendor).

Ongoing maintenance required and support provided in Australia

Whilst the unit is autonomous in regards to power and functionality, the film cartridge is replaced every 2-3 years. At this point, this is done by the vendor/field crew and used as a general touch point to conduct general check up on the device. Technical support is provided to farmers/clients via initial consult and ongoing phone support.
