The whole world is changing with technology, and the wine industry does not stay the same. If you activate in this area, you should know that there are some trends that you should follow.

To know what, where and when, the vine grower needs information about all aspects that can influence the growth of vineyards, and these are the result of processing raw data from multiple data sources such as field sensors, weather stations , drones who can overfly and supervise the life or the people on the field.


Forecasting, monitoring and better planning of treatments to be done in the vineyard are a very relevant example. Based on the information and alerts received from both field sensors and weather stations, predictions can be made as to the treatment required for previous treatments, but also for diseases, weather conditions or pests. So we will not only have a healthier vineyard, but also a reduction in spending.
