This project focuses on reducing the financial burden and optimization of plant protection products through a new technology based on intelligent processing to optimize pest control. Spray the decision on the ground of protection is a key issue on the use of agrochemicals and crop expenses. Technological upgrading and development of environmentally friendly technologies for consumer safety are truly necessary to ensure competitiveness of agriculture in Europe, according to the Report on the Competitiveness of the European Union, Food Industry (HLG007 / 2009). The sustainability of the agri-food sector depends on reducing its weaknesses by promoting new technologies. For years the crop protection agents are homogeneously applied on the field and often to a maximum permitted dose. Now, farmers face high and rising costs of agrochemicals and at the same time increasing demand from the authorities to reduce or abandon many chemicals. EU further implementation of Good Agricultural and Environmental Conditions (GAEC), soon force farmers to reduce pesticides and herbicides used in crop protection. Failure to comply with the rules relating to GAEC will result in a financial discount on EU subsidies / income support.
