Social impact
Contrast to food waste caused by the lost of harvest and reduction of the improper use of pesticides in crops, are two of the main factors of the positive environmental impact generated by Agrorobotica. The main problems affecting crops are the damages caused by parasitic insects: depending on the type of crop and vintages, the losses of the crop - in particular concerning vine and olive or fruit trees - fluctuate on average from 20% to 50%, resulting in a substantial waste of food and resources. The greatest problem for farmers lies most of the time in the inability to promptly detect the presence of harmful insects and to recognize their identity. This involves late interventions, with consequent loss of crops and, not infrequently, an improper and massive use of insecticides harmful to the environment and human health.
