Frequently asked questions

How do I get in touch for a demo?

There are regular demos on our field trials. Contact us for more details.

How does the Deepfield team scan my fields?

The high precision sensors are carried by a tractor or a robot over the test fields at your appointed locations. After recording the data is analyzed and results are uploaded to a secured webspace for your review. The measurement is based on a full service agreement. Except for planning the field trials no other support is required from your end.

How long does it take to scan a hectare ?

One hectare typically covers 1000 trial plots. The machine will screen this area in 10 hours.

Does the crop matter?

Yes. At the present moment, we are offering the service for corn and sugar beet. Other crops on request.

How accurate are your measurements?

Precision plant and seed breeding requirements are the driving force behind the 4D-Scan system. We use highly accurate GPS based systems allowing centimeter precision. The system localizes and identifies crop and weed plants, measures their leaf area and tracks their growth.

Can we do measurements at night?

No, for accuracy reasons and due to local regulations this is not recommended.

Is there a demo of the Deepfield cloud?

Yes. Please contact us for temporary guest access.

How much would a measurement campaign cost me?

The costs depend on the number of measurement days you book for your field trials. A standard measurement campaign will cover at least 5 days of field measurements. Please contact us for more details.

Where is my data stored?

The recorded data is securely stored on Bosch servers located in Germany.

Can I request for new metrics from the measurement?

Yes. We will consider adding new metrics depending on your requirements and specifications.

Will the robot be able to run in all weather?

No. There are limitations due to soil conditions under extreme wet weather
