Project provides in-growth interventions

B-Hive Innovations is currently undertaking its TuberScan project - funded by UKRI and developed in partnership with the University of Manchester and Harper Adams University to create demonstration units. 

TuberScan combines above and below ground sensing to detect the yield of the whole crop and show crop variation.

B-Hive claims the technology is the first application of its kind, providing interventions during crop growth based on whole population data, rather than just samples. If successful, it has the potential to act as a catalyst for further innovations for precision-based equipment such as intelligent sprayers.
