Field trial analysis
Powerful and scalable plant phenotyping solution to support your digital transformation, reduce seed R&D cycles, and adapt to the challenges of climate change.
At Alteia, our knowledge of agronomy, plants, and artificial intelligence has allowed us to develop data pipelines for a wide range of crops.
The Alteia Field Trial Analysis application turns your latest crop data into valuable phenotypic measures and reports that help you speed up your field trial programs and easily compare any plot to another – representing a gain of 30% on your R&D process.
The application enables data pipelines coming from a wide variety of sensors, vectors, and crops, and ensures scalability through automated data processing chains.
You can automatically detect your plots, vectorize them, and extract different types of information from visual imagery that will be automatically contextualized to the plots.
Automated and end-to-end data flow
Automate your recurrent data collection and analysis operations thanks to the integrated season planner module. With this specific feature you can automate data processing chains by describing the sequence of analyses to be performed throughout the season; standardize processing chains between different sites; track progress of data collection and processing tasks.
It offers a multitude of advantages.
Firstly, it enhances efficiency by reducing the need for manual data handling, which minimizes the risk of errors and speeds up data analysis.
It also ensures scalability, as it can handle large volumes of data without a proportional increase in human resources.
Furthermore, automation ensures data consistency and quality, as predefined rules and algorithms govern the processing steps.
Leverage embedded editing tools to create digital twins of your field trials
Generate plot boundaries to measure, benchmark, monitor traits and evaluate trial responses at microplot level. A microplot custom ID is linked to each microplot for seamless data analysis. Microplot edition tools are available within the application (modify, delete,…). You can also import pre-existing microplot vector files generated outside the platform.
Support decisions for field trial validation based on plant density/stand counts
Plant density is a key piece of information about crop growth that guides decision-making, informs agricultural strategies, and ensures sustainable and productive farming practices, making it an indispensable component of field trial analysis.
Firstly, it serves as a fundamental indicator of crop health and productivity.
Furthermore, this data is invaluable for assessing the impact of environmental factors, such as weather and soil conditions, on plant growth, enabling better adaptation to changing climate patterns.
Typically performed manually, this task can benefit from recent advances in computer vision. The Field Trial Analysis application embeds AI models for the automated detection of individual plants from different varieties, and the data aggregation at plot level to run statistics between plots and fields.
Automatize and standardize crop trait measurement process
This functionality allows at microplot level the generation of available vegetation indexes and compute statistics like flowering characterization; plant height and plant count, stay green index.
You can also generate custom scouting maps and traits with specific formulas.
Automating crop trait measurement offers a multitude of benefits that revolutionize agriculture and research.
It reduces human error, ensuring precise and consistent measurements, which are crucial for the accuracy of research findings and breeding programs.
Moreover, automated systems can capture a wider range of traits, including those that are difficult to assess manually, leading to a more comprehensive understanding of crop performance.
Evaluate quickly and consistently plant response to crop protection products
By continuously monitoring crop growth and health over time, researchers can track changes in vegetation indices and other key indicators. This data can then be analyzed in a time series format, allowing for the observation of trends and patterns in crop behavior before and after the application of protection products.
Such analysis can reveal the effectiveness of these products in terms of pest or disease management, as well as their impact on crop growth and overall health.
Additionally, time series data enables the identification of optimal application timings and dosage levels, contributing to more efficient and sustainable agricultural practices.
Record anomalies in your field experiment
Access data anywhere, anytime using the mobile application extension.
Empower your team of agronomists to collaborate from a single source of truth by using the annotation and collaboration tools, create tasks and allocate them to specific teams.
Leverage the mobile application to simplify communication by making 2D/3D maps mobile, and use it for new data inputs or field work validation.
Share data across your organization
Give everyone on your team instant visibility into the status of the plots. The Alteia Field Trial Analysis application gives agronomists and data scientists ways to compare the behavior on different sites and plots under different conditions, and fosters collaborative improvement.
Reduce R&D costs and cycle times
By leveraging Alteia Field Trial Analysis application, you’re decreasing the cost per analysis, while equipping your team with the most updated data they need to accomplish more in less time. With a complete visual progress timeline, you can optimize on-site operations management and reduce the amount of personnel needed for ground truthing. Your agronomists can also spend more time analyzing the information as the time to collect the data is drastically reduced.
Save analysis time and scale up
The Alteia Field Trial Analysis application automates many parts of the trait characterization workflow; from the detection of the plots to the processing of the information coming from drones, and the generation of reports on various types of indexes and data. It enables you to analyze more plots with less.
Reduce plant assessment variability
Apply the same methods over your different R&D sites and reduce variability of the results. Compare methods and iterate to generate better results over time. This user-friendly application reduces friction from image acquisition to results interpretation. One application, the same methodology for all your trials and research programs.
