FarmAperture provides a clear and visual layout with key insights detailing your orchard’s performance.
Users can further filter their view to focus on information for selects blocks, rows, and trees. For each of these view levels, you can display specific agronomic insights including average fruit per tree, mean/median fruit size, and projected total fruit count among other potential insights.
With an intuitive, easy, cloud-based web interface, FarmAperture has a host of features enabling you to easily interpret and share insights with key players across your organization.

Mapping yield and size is a difficult challenge because so much fruit is obscured by foliage and the canopy. A single picture of a tree may only capture a small proportion of the fruit.
Every orchard is different, which limits the accuracy of modelling. Furthermore, the yield changes each season even when trees stay the same size.
What is needed, is a technology which removes as much correlation, extrapolation and modelling from the data collection process as possible by directly counting and sizing the actual fruit itself.
At Dynium we have been working for 4 years to develop such a system. We take several of pictures of every tree from multiple different perspectives. We then intelligently fuse those image counts together.
Our technology works in 3D space to ensure that the same apple seen in multiple images is not double counted.
Our multi-perspective imaging technique has been tested and refined across three growing seasons to deliver high accuracy in a range of growing styles.
We can identify where fruit vigor has been directed into yield vs size, and hence evaluate thinning performance or subtle changes in inputs such as soil type or irrigation.
We also validate our automated system with manual counts to give you the assurance you need to make your most critical decisions.
