About Fotenix

FOTENIX are an ability provider, enabling smart operation of agricultural machinery. We combine cameras, deploying colours of light, with machine learning to monitor crop health. The protected key technology is three-dimensional multispectral imaging which allows laboratory analysis at an economic cost, ensuring data-driven decisions.

The next step in data driven farming

 FOTENIX enabled machinery provides the next step of data-driven farming to producers, whilst the cloud platform ensures agronomic insights that compound with each use, and connect directly to agronomy providers. We act as a conduit between the crop and the machinery used to cultivate it, focusing on building diagnostic ability across the sector and empowering original equipment manufacturers.

Detecting cues from dynamic plant responses significantly improves identification of the traits under study. FOTENIX can monitor plant characteristics using the active 3D system, providing backscattered reflectance and morphological information across the UV-VIS-NIR [365 – 1050 nm] region.

The DELTA platform was designed specifically for the breeding sector, as the first 3D multispectral imaging system tailored for plant tissue. The result is a refined package, with presymptomatic capabilities. Please contact [email protected] for order inquires.
