About PATS-C

What it does

PATS-C tracks flying pest insects in your greenhouse. This saves you time on scouting rounds and facilitates adequate action when pest pressure rises. High frequency monitoring helps to tackle pests in an early stage, preventing the further spreading of offspring. This reduces unnecessary crop losses and the use of costly resources. PATS-C keeps an eye out for you. Today the service focuses mainly on moth pests (Lepidoptera) of which the caterpillars can wreak havoc in no time.

How it works

The PATS-C system is an infrared camera solution that monitors activity of flying insect pests during nighttime. Installation is plug & play. Our software and integrated 4G connectivity take care of the rest. We help you to move from collecting data in the field to interpreting data from the field via our PATS-C dashboard. This way you can focus on what matters most, staying on top of pests.

Crops in scope

Every crop grown in an indoor environment is in scope of the PATS-C system. As we are interested in the airspace rather than the crop itself, we are minimally limited by the lay-out and crop growth process itself. Any type of environment, from high-tech to low-tech greenhouse or tunnel, has thus far shown that the system is able to adequately monitor pests and provide valuable insights.

Today the system is active in over 20 crops, including vegetables, fruits, cut-flowers and ornamentals.
