2 In 2006 DECA SPA created Agriveltha: a revolutionary system that uses Artificial Intelligence for the prediction of diseases in vineyards. Through the use of meteorological sensors and acquisition of data it is able to reduce the use of pesticides and treatments on plants and to prevent diseases by predicting them on time, so as to improve the final quality of the product. It is important to understand that this system is applicable to all sectors of agriculture and not just that of vineyards, so as to have a complete control of whatever crop one is trying to grow, and to be able to harvest in a more efficient and less costly way, while respecting the environment. Another fundamental aspect of Agriveltha is its tracking ability, through the use of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) it is able to foresee diseases and detect faults, this obviously resulting in great savings.

Agriveltha: Prediction of Diseases using Artificial Intelligence Acquisition of meteorological data sensors Artificial Intelligence- ANN (artificial neural network) analysis Verification of the result with scientific & standardized protocols 4
Downy Mildew:Attacks about 30% of plants Late Blight: Infests about 10% of plants Infestation of plants occurs from 1 to 3 times yearly. The prevention is based on preventive spraying. Italian Data
6 100/200 euros per hectare to treat 3 to 8 treatments per season Now with Agriveltha 6
System overview Monitoring vineyards and checking the infection phase 8
Stand-alone weather station The weather station (solar powered and remotely programmed) supplies data automatically, every 15 minutes. The Following input constitues over 1000 data transmissions daily. 9
11 Checks the growth phase of the plants Checks the infection phase Transforms the semantic description in objective data, in relation to international standards
