Summary
The electronic olfactory sensor AgriNose, in combination with remote sensing-optical methods, is intended to support monitoring in plant cultivation in the future in such a way that earlier detection of several plant diseases simultaneously, which in most cases occur in mixed infections, becomes possible. The early detection of plant diseases is part of innovative cultivation techniques that support integrated and ecological production methods. Early detection of infection can significantly reduce the use of plant protection products. The potential advantages of this approach are to be tested here on typical plant diseases in rye. ATBs research work in the AgriNose project includes in particularly the determination of the optimisation potential for the early detection of plant diseases in winter rye using sensor technology and the characterisation of the VOC (volatile organic compounds) profiles of diseased and non-diseased stands. Based on this, the ATB is developing the integration of the AgriNose electronic nose into a monitoring concept for the detection of plant diseases in stands of winter rye.
