Yara ImageIT is a smartphone app designed to measure nitrogen uptake in a crop and generate a nitrogen recommendation based on photographs of the crop. ImageIT calculates nitrogen uptake based on leaf cover, leaf green color and estimated fraction of brown leaves. The app also generates an intelligent recommendation for adjusting the fertilization program based on measurements.
ImageIT is user-friendly and flexible in terms of technical requirements: it works with low resolution images with a file size as small as 50 – 200 KB. If internet coverage is poor, ImageIT can save the photos on the smartphone and then send them later for interpretation when reception is back on again.
Yara has decided to offer the app completely free of charge. Up to now, Yara has had 25,000 downloads in the whole of Europe.
The latest version of YARA ImageIT can now be downloaded free of charge on Apple, Android and Windows devices.
