High-tech orchard spraying done right

While spraying you overdose and underdose. What if you could anticipate each tree’s individual needs?

PlantmatiQ’s modular C-Box system improves any kind of sprayer: It helps you to significantly reduce spray loss, improve yield and increase worker safety.

Curious which C-Box module is perfect for you?

Empowering fruitfarming efficiency

At Plantmatiq, we understand a farmer’s needs.

As the global population grows, an annual increase in food production is required. This usually also implies an increase in the use of spraying agents, with all its consequences for the environment. To reduce the use of spraying agents and conserve the environment, and also maintain the required level of food production, the efficiency of agriculture should be significantly improved. 

Intensive co-creation with leading manufacturers and dealers of agricultural machinery has resulted in the perfect spray control system that impacts your business yields.

Our solutions make your work more comfortable, precise, safer and cost-reducing, all while improving the quality of production.

How we do this

We focus on all 3 “A”s in our quest for continuous improvement

To ensure continuous improvement of performance, our modules are constantly updated, future proofing your system – without losing their backward compatibility, obviously.

Availability

Optimization of personnel, machinery and spraying agent use

An autonomous vehicle, equipped with PlantmatiQ’s control system, is available for operations work night and day. Your dependency on highly skilled personnel is greatly reduced. In addition, present personnel can truly use the system’s full potential by operating its user-friendly operator interface.

Accuracy

Only spray what is needed, where it is needed

Our C-Box system facilitates the collection of information about the individual trees. When used for a job file, you can choose in advance which trees should or should not be treated. With the GPS module, a spraying accuracy of 2 cm can be achieved.

Administration

Predict your crops’ requirements and comply with regulations

Every time our system is driven through your orchard, it will collect information about your orchard. Based on this information, an automated log for your administration will be compiled, through seamless integration with the leading AgroManager software.

Industrial solution for agricultural challenges

PlantmatiQ has developed the C-Box to cover your Triple-A requirements. Addressing the accuracy of spraying is the first step in building the precision chain.

With its sensors C-Box collects data about spraying agent consumption, driving speed, wind speed and location of leaf mass. It uses this information to control the spraying nozzles, thus reaching a drift reduction of max. 99,9%.

C-Box is brand independent, and due to its modularity, it gives you the freedom of stepwise installation of functionality:

  • Make your existing machinery smart(er) with a C-Box retrofit
  • Only buy the functionality you need right now
  • Add functionality when your requirements change

After realizing a high spraying accuracy, precision can be extended through the entire chain, and applied for e.g. picking, storage and sorting.

PlantmatiQ C-Box benefits

No specialist knowledge among personnel is required to spray accurately

Human input becomes verifiable and correctable

GPS control adds another 5% reduction in the use of crop protection products

Retrofittable and backward compatible

Modular design: Flexible and future proof

Versitality

The C-Box system was designed with modern farmer requirements in mind. Its modularity and upgradability allows it to be used in variety of fruit farming applications.

C-Box’ user-friendly design simplifies complex processes through easy-to-use interfaces with a minimum of manual interventions. Its off-the-shelf solutions and a modular design ensure short installation time, with easy upgrading and expansion to grow with your needs.

On top of that, C-Box integrates with all types of machinery and equipment available on the market. There is no need to interfere with your machines’ internal systems: you will instantly upgrade your existing material to a smart setup.

Modularity at heart

At PlantmatiQ, we are all about reducing waste: Waste of crop protectants and fertilizers, as well as of money and valuable resources needed to operate your business.

That’s why we designed our C-Box system, with modular expansion at its core. And due to this modularity, you can easily add (or withhold) functionalities to fit your requirements, and upscale depending on your needs.

NEW TECHNOLOGIES - The future of fruit farming

PlantmatiQ is highly involved in the development of autonomous tractors with spraying machines, and of automatic filling stations.


In 2022 various pilot projects are running where C-Boxes are an essential element of the autonomous operation of agricultural vehicles.

Meet the team

In most industries, it is common use to collect, analyse and act on data that becomes available during to improve the production process. An exception to this is agriculture. Why?

As industrial automation specialists, this question kept bugging us. Although there are several external influences you can’t control, there should be ways to use collected data to improve the agricultural production.

Fueled by our knowledge and passion in the field of precise engineering, robotics and automation, we set out to accelerate in-field efficiency of fruit farming practices with state-of-the-art technology.
