Large scale automated visual yield estimation in table grape vineyards
This project aims to test automated visual yield technology on larger properties of early
adopters that have dedicated staff to operate the technology. It is anticipated that these
larger enterprises will utilise this technology alongside other platforms such as airborne
imagery to identify and monitor weaker areas within vineyard management units. Bitwise
Agronomy will work closely with the participants and the ATGA team to reduce problems
with uploading files to the computer and file size in order to avoid barriers identified in
the first project.
The progress of the project will be captured using video and communicated monthly via
ATGA’s social media channels so that other producers can follow progress in more or less
real time. ATGA will also facilitate exchange of skills and knowledge between the
new participants and the participants from the first round on a monthly basis or when
needed, e.g., establish a peer-to-peer learning group. Based on the results from the
early adopters, ATGA will compile a CBA framework as a business case for owner operated
businesses. Data from the first round will be integrated giving producers more
confidence for their decision making. The ATGA team will also look into the viability of a
establishing a service provider model for the region that could be extended into other
table grape growing regions across Australia. Additionally, there is the possibility of extending the Green View technology’s capability to include the quantification of the
extent of pest and disease pressure in the vineyard, which would be an added benefit.
