Birds are naturally drawn to food supplies in agricultural areas, transmitting diseases and damaging crops. Fruits, vegetables and newly-seeded and emergent crops provide an all-you-can-eat feast for birds if unchecked. Birds typically eat their body weight in food every day causing damage to crops and food storage in barns ranging from 5-50% or more!Globally, this problem causes billions of euros of damage each year. Effective bird control is essential and farmers do anything to keep birds away from their crops. At Bird Control Group we offer cost effective and animal-friendly solutions for protecting agricultural areas and keeping your valuable crops safe.
The principle of repelling birds with a laser beam is inspired by nature. Birds perceive the approaching laser beam as a physical object. It appeals to the survival instinct, causing the birds to fly away. It’s safe, silent and birds do not get used to the laser beam.

Aerial surveys have become an integral part of forestland management, in large part replacing extensive field surveys. With current digital mapping capabilities, acquiring fast, accurate imagery is now not only essential, but also cost effective. Whether you need data for stand updating, depletion mapping or defoliation and damage assessment, you face the challenge of choosing the best technology and service for your investment.
To accommodate your forestry business requirements, the GeoVantage approach makes easy and rapid collections of contiguous or scattered blocks possible, with coverage worldwide. GeoVantage offers a wide variety of digital ortho-mosaicked color infrared and natural color imagery from a quarter meter to two-meter pixel resolution.
- Stand delineation
- Inventory analysis
- Depletion mapping
- Damage assessment

Even though the product has changed, Forsberg remains the industry leader in separation systems for grain separation. Forsberg products were designed under patents that cover the vital components of gravity separation, high speed stone separation, variable speed controls and chemical treatment processes. Our 50,000 square foot corporate facility houses a state-of-the-art test facility which allows us to experiment with different materials using a variety of processes in a short time. Forsbergs separators can remove damaged seeds or contaminants from a variety of bulk materials. Stones, dirt, glass and other objects are able to be removed from the grains quickly and efficiently.

Urban Trees are continuously exposed to several stress situations like air pollution, soil compaction, exhaust gases, damage of tree trunks, etc. For the responsible authorities it is important to anticipate these problems, as the consequences of possible accidents can be considerable (e.g. tree fall).EUROSENSE can provide a number of products that are important means for designing a correct policy for urban trees on short and long term.
Acquisition of images -The acquisition of aerial or satellite images is the basis of tree inventory, mapping and most of our products. The assessment of the physiological tree status is done with colour infrared (IR) images. In the IR spectrum of the light, vegetation reflects much more and can hence be better analysed than in the case of normal light spectrum.
Tree inventory - An inventory of the tree patrimony is the basis of a good tree management. Tree species identification, tree height, trunk circumference measurements and spatial localization of trees are primary needs for every Green City Service.
Tree crown diameter - Based on semi-automatic aerial or satellite image analysis, the crown diameter of every tree can be calculated. The location, the extent of trees and their proximity to buildings can be visualised in a GIS (Geographic Information System) environment.
Tree labelling - In the field, every tree can be labelled to assure the correct identification.
Tree status assessment - Mechanical Status: EUROSENSE assesses tree stability with the Visual Tree Assessment method. This consists in identifying internal mechanical defects using external signs (e.g. appearance of the trunk, fungal fruiting bodies,…).
Physiological status: unhealthy trees, although appearing healthy on the field, can already exhibit obvious illness symptoms (lower red colour levels) on the colour infrared images. Mostly, this bad physiological status will only be visible on the field several years later.
Data management - The integration of each tree into a GIS (Geographic Information System) database is essential. Within this GIS, the user can request, observe and add data during different stages of the tree management. By publishing the obtained data online, citizens can also visualize the results.
Analysis tools - Trees can be evaluated through time by making evolution maps: improvement or deterioration of the health status of trees can be visualized. Statistical analysis, like tree species, health status distribution, etc. can be very useful in reports. Tree policy and management plan - A clear tree policy can result in a detailed management plan indicating concrete measures for every tree.

In the current fruit and vegetable market, transporting and warehousing produce for long periods of time is a common practice. Ensuring that the environment in which they are stored is optimal during these periods is critical if damage and spoilage leading to loss of produce is to be avoided.

Protection against Frosts
Reduces drastic temperature changes
Drastically reduces frost damage by cushioning sudden temperature drops.
By providing a micro-climate with greater temperature than that of the environment, reduces harvesting time.
Main crops: strawberries, lettuce, flowers, melons, watermelons, pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers, among others

Automatic crop and garden irrigation has never been easier! The Micro Rain line of travelers offers a cost effective, portable method for effective crop and garden irrigation. Famers and gardeners have many problems when trying to irrigation their acreages, such as dragging around hose, standing out and sweating in the sun, etc. These machines are designed to be extremely user friendly, have unparalleled performance, and operate completely unattended. They are a great alternative to in-ground irrigation systems which are typically more expensive, higher maintenance, and have sprinkler heads that often need to be repaired, causing damage to the garden. Proven garden and crop programs that include aeration, fertilization, and a Micro Rain irrigation system with its uniform water applications will ensure your garden or crop field has a `softer feel` and healthier look.
