BioScout sensors monitor your property for airborne fungal disease 24/7. Combined with comprehensive weather data measured by the sensors, this information allows you to make informed decisions regarding your disease management. Ultimately, BioScout takes the guessing game out of airborne disease management and allows customers to reduce spray costs and optimise timing to increase yields.

Current disease targets for cereals, oilseeds and legumes include:

  • Septoria

  • Rust

  • Net Blotch

  • Blackleg

  • Botrytis

And for viticulture:

  • Botrytis

  • Powdery Mildew

  • Downy Mildew

  • Eutypa (coming soon)

With many more targets on the horizon.

How it works

BioScout uses advanced automated microscopy and machine learning to identify airborne particles as they come through the system. We measure multiple different diseases simultaneously without any human intervention.

What You’ll See

The BioScout dashboard gives an overview of both diseases on the farm and environmental data. It provides an integrated platform for disease management, allowing you to log sprays, save observations and measure how your disease control is impacting your bottom line.

When a disease is detected and the environmental conditions are favourable for an outbreak, BioScout immediately lets you know. It tells you what disease has been detected, where it is on your farm and what to do about it.

Integrated Disease Management takes on a whole new meaning through the real-time data collected by the BioScout system. See the impact of your sprays on disease load in real-time. Make informed decisions on spraying, crop rotations and more.
