gaiasense at the 30th Agrotica International Fair

The 30th International Exhibition of Agricultural Machinery, Equipment and Supplies, Agrotica, which welcomed more than 150,000 visitors from 1 to 4 February at the Helexpo International Exhibition Centre in Thessaloniki, was the focal point of the agricultural world from all over the country and the wider Balkan region.

Focusing on digitalisation, innovation and high technology in agricultural production, this year’s Agrotica once again emphatically set the dominant priorities of the primary sector at an international level.

Of course, NEUROPUBLIC, the company that leads the developments in agriculture and, in particular, the in green and digital transformation of the agricultural sector, could not be absent from the event. In fact, the Piraeus-based technology and IT company was at Agrotica with its own booth where it presented all its latest innovations, as well as the technological “tools” it has developed to help farmers improve and rationalize their production.

The complete solution for the effective treatment of olive tree fruit fly has the signature of NEUROPUBLIC.

In detail, the people who passed through the gates of this year’s Agrotica had the opportunity to discuss with NEUROPUBLIC representatives how they can improve their agricultural production and see for themselves:

  •  gaiaTRAP, the most comprehensive solution for the effective control of olive fruit fly, which is based on the latest technology of electronic lace traps and an electronic platform, using AI (Artificial Intelligence) developed in collaboration with the Smart Sension technoblast of the Ionian University,
  • the new functionalities of the gaiasense mobile app and, in particular, the fertilization advice and the nutrient balance that help the producer to calculate the nutrient needs of his crop, get personalised advice and benefit from the aid of the Ecological Programmes,
  • the capabilities of the Smart Weather by gaiasense platform, which offers a 5-day weather forecast throughout Greece, as well as 24-hour historical data from the 400 agro-meteorological stations of the gaiasense network.
