Project mission

Consensi aims at developing an innovative and effective method for the optimization of specific nutrients applied in the agricultural sector. The key factor consists in the implementation of an ongoing soil monitoring and crops’ vegetative vigour by using innovative technologies such as a pilot drone that performs the mapping, sampling and automatic analysis of the land. The inputs recorded by that device will be matched to simultaneous surveys carried out by data management systems and satellites with the goal to define the nitrogen residues and chemical-physical characteristics of zootechnical effluents. A web application will be designed based on the analysis performed in order to store all useful information and release manuring guidelines for the farmers.
