STRAWBERRIES PLANTED

WHO WE ARE

We are a team of engineers from the University of Delaware. Using our expertise in robotics we are developing sustainable new solutions to benefit the agricultural industry.

"An affordable, commercial version of the PhylloLux work will be very helpful for the US strawberry industry. "

Janet Broome

Lead for Plant Health Research

"The use of UV light applied at night to help control fungus and spider mites is game changing."

Elizabeth Ponce

Vice President

"Strawberry farmers are seeking solutions to reduce pesticide usage, labor inputs and preventing degradation of our environment for more sustainable farming operation."

Kevin Schooley

Executive Director

WHAT WE DO

We are helping farmers make more profit with less work. In collaboration with the USDA ARS, we are currently developing a non-chemical treatment method, using UV-C light to replace pesticides. While our robot treats the field it collects data to improve farm management.

WHAT WE PROVIDE

A combination of automation and UV-C light, using technology developed by the USDA, our platform kills pathogens autonomously in place of pesticides.

Tracking the development and health of every strawberry in the field, our data solutions streamline logistics and improve farm management.

This Feature Is Coming Soon

Our platform autonomously targets and kills weeds, reducing labor and herbicide use.

PILOT PARTNER SITES

Kearneysville, West Virginia

With scientists from the USDA Agricultural Research Center, our first out of state pilot site supports two varieties on 1/5 acre.

Georgetown, Delaware

Located at the University of Delaware’s Carvel Research Center, this is our largest pilot site with a full acre and four different strawberry varieties.

Camden, Delaware

In collaboration with Delaware’s largest strawberry farm, our 1/4 acre Fifer Orchards pilot site was established in September 2019.
