When AI enables the efficient use of resources in forestry irrigation

Montes del Plata is a leading forestry company that produces eucalyptus cellulose pulp. It’s a joint venture between two of the largest forestry companies in the world: Stora Enso (Sweden-Finland, 25,000 employees in 30 countries) and Arauco (Chile, 13,000 employees).

CHALLENGE
The company had watering machines that were manually operated and could only irrigate one row of trees at the time. They needed to find a solution to reduce the mortality of new trees in the drier months, as well as use water more efficiently in irrigation.
The irrigation machine in operation.
SOLUTION
Our team developed an artificial vision module that can be attached to the multiple arms of a newly-designed watering machine.

It detects plants in real-time and automatically activates the irrigation mechanism to water the trees.

This computer vision module enables the irrigation of several rows per pass: saving time, and costs and improving survival rate.
