Natutec Scout

Natutec Scout app registrations put on hold

Natutec Scout is currently undergoing a significant upgrade. As a result, Koppert cannot accept new registrations as the customer support cannot (temporarily) ensure the required level of service. There is, however, a waiting list for growers who still wish to register for the next season and beyond.

Launched as an innovative tool in 2019, growers use the Natutec Scout app for quick and easy insight into the status of pest control in their greenhouses, collect data, and perform analyses using the dashboard linked to this app. 

Please keep an eye on this website for the latest updates.

Use Natutec Scout to improve the effect of scouting

Natutec Scout is the platform to quickly and easily provide insight into the status of a greenhouse. Use the mobile app to collect data and perform extensive analyses in the dashboard. This allows you to see at any moment what is happening in the greenhouse and intervene when necessary, resulting in healthy crops!

8 reasons to start using Natutec Scout:

Professionalizes your integrated pest management by using a Cloud-based uniform registration tool

Using Natutec Scout you have all your relevant crop protection data stored in the Cloud. Cloud-based guarantees to access your data when and wherever you need it. Further, Natutec Scout offers a structured method of data gathering and processing, which is necessary to enhance data analysis later on. So avoid inefficiencies using paper, multiple data entries and local IT problems. We offer you a state-of-the-art alternative to set up effective crop protection systems.
 

 

Allow Koppert consultants to continue remote support during lockdowns

Both human and plant viruses have led to strict procedures with respect to nursery visits. In general, consultants have to deal with several other sources of communication to get an idea of the actual situation in your greenhouse with respect to controlling pests and diseases. When both parties start using Natutec Scout, communication becomes almost as effective as a regular on site visit. Even without virus pressure, remote support will become the new standard in greenhouse consultancy.

 

Automatically generates condition-based alerts, indicating development of pests and diseases

Natutec Scout has an effective alert function which gives timely warning when the development of a pest or disease exceeds the treshold level the grower has determined for himself. Take, for example, a tomato grower who considers an average number of 25 whiteflies on his sticky cards as a critical level that requires immediate action. On the very first sign that the average number of whiteflies is higher than the critical level that has been set, an alert for that specific department is visible on the Natutec Scout dashboard. The responsible manager knows exactly where to check in person and defines the right action to get the situation under control. At the same time, the Koppert consultant is also notified by the alert from his customer and knows who to contact first. In this way, Natutec Scout alerts enhance both the control and communication for the best possible results.

 

Increases reliability of IPM-data – reducing input error-sensitivity

The manual counting of insects on sticky cards is a labour-intensive job. After counting 10 sticky cards with more than 25 insects per card, the accuracy will suffer due to reduced human concentration. That's why Koppert has created automated alternatives. The Natutec Scout scanner - used for automatic whitefly and thrips counting on sticky cards - has been developed with state-of-the-art technology. You simply teach computer software how to recognize whiteflies and thrips by offering 10.000 or more examples. That’s how we manage to beat the human eye in the end. Natutec Scout dramatically improves the reliability of your scout sessions.
