Innovating agriculture: HarvestEye to showcase next-gen crop monitoring at Potatoes in Practice event

The team behind HarvestEye will be showcasing the latest iteration of its machine learning-led crop insights tool at the UK’s largest field-based potato event this week. Subscription, rental and lease options are now available for growers after HarvestEye 2.0 launched in February earlier this year.

Fitting to harvesting or grading equipment, HarvestEye will be on display at Potatoes in Practice, held on Thursday 10 August in Dundee. The technology is a cost-effective method to deliver visibility on the size, shape and mapping variability of root crops as they are lifted. The system is currently compatible with potatoes and onions.

The refreshed software and hardware in the 2.0 system delivers faster crop measurement and processing, leading to improved accuracy of detections and data reported to its online portal.

The more powerful software also enhances HarvestEye’s capabilities to operate more effectively in challenging environments, such as low evening sun.

Ed Strawson, sales account manager at HarvestEye, said: “HarvestEye provides unprecedented levels of reporting for growers and packers that are seeking better monitoring tools to enhance long-term planning, which helps to create more efficient and sustainable supply chains.

“Potatoes in Practice is a fantastic showcase for the UK agricultural sector, delivering the very latest in crop protection and growing techniques. It is an opportunity speak to local and national growers and gather a better understanding of the specific challenges they face with their crop.

“We’re looking forward to engaging with a broad range of businesses and how HarvestEye can support with their needs for precise whole-field mapping.”

The HarvestEye team can be found at Stand E at Potatoes in Practice, hosted at the James Hutton Institute’s Balruddery Farm, in association with Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) and Agrii.
