This project proposes a revolutionary robot for chemical blossom thinning which applies chemicals directly onto the flowers, in precisely targeted locations and in dosages customised for each tree.

The approach will offer a new level of precision in flower thinning. Thanks to artificial intelligence methods, it will be able to reach an optimum thinning rate even in highly variable environments and it will significantly reduce the volume of chemicals sprayed.
