ABOUT edete

ACHIEVEMENTS

edete Precision Agriculture Technologies is solving the world’s ever-growing pollination challenge by developing and manufacturing an efficient, automated fruit orchard pollination system and providing optimized pollination services to companies and growers.

 

By reducing the dependency on haphazard, insect-based pollination processes, edete’s controlled and manageable mechanical pollination system improves the quantity and quality of fruit orchard yields.

 

Key achievements to date:
  • Have successfully demonstrated mechanical pollination in almond orchards.
  • Have developed an end-to-end, proven process for harvesting and extracting pure pollen.
  • Have set up chemical and mechanical labs to investigate and test pollen viability and germability.
  • Have received seed funding from private angels as well as approved support from the Israel government Innovation Authority.
 

POLLINATION

Pollination is the transfer of pollen from the male parts to the female parts of a flower, resulting in the fertilization of plant ovaries and the production of seeds, fruits and vegetables. Pollen is transferred by wind, insects, birds and mammals. The main insect pollinators, by far, are bees. Hand pollination is carried out where there is a scarcity of wild or managed pollinators and it is a common practice in China.
 

OUR VISION

To solve the pollination deficiency challenge by developing and manufacturing an efficient automated pollination system and providing optimized pollination services to companies and growers.

THE PROBLEM

AGRICULTURE PRODUCTION
CHALLENGE
According to the FAO, the world population will be over 9 billion by 2050, and agricultural production must grow by 70% in order to avoid food scarcity.
POLLINATORS ARE
DISAPPEARING
Wild pollinators have declined in numbers and diversity (UN 2016). Managed bees are facing Colony Collapse Disorder.
FOOD DEPENDENCY
ON POLLINATION
About 75% of the world’s crops rely on animal pollination.
BEE POLLINATION NATURAL CONSTRAINTS
Optimal weather conditions: t+15C, no rain; attractiveness of the crop relative to the competing floral mart; plant cross pollination requires bloom synchronization.
 
 

OUR SOLUTION

Two advanced mechanical systems
 1. POLLEN HARVESTING
Collection of flowers, separation of pollen from anthers, long-term storage of
pollen stock.
 2. POLLINATION
Autonomic system - aerial or ground - that constantly self-positions at an optimal pollination position. It rapidly and thoroughly covers any open flower in its range. Accurate pollination based on the orchard’s on-line measured conditions
Our system provides a
CONTROLLED & MANAGEABLE POLLINATION PROCESS
PROCESS that will
 INCREASE GLOBAL AGRICULTURAL YIELD
 
 

THE MARKET

  • Pollination dependent crops – Rosaceae, Nuts, other crops
  • High pollination impacted crops market value was estimated at over $300B, comprised of over 200 million harvested hectares with the production of about 1,230 million tons (2013).
  • Market Focus – US Almond market value of $6.4B (2013) is 80% of total almond world supply, followed by Spain and Australia
  • Growth potential - Rosaceae (Apples, Pears, Plums, Cherries) world market value over $77B, other crops – Cucurbitaceae (water melons, melons, squash..) $33B, Mango $26B, etc.
