What's A Petiole Pro...?
What exactly is the difference between any other app and Petiole Pro?
Petiole Pro is an AI-assisted super app for growers and researchers, from seed to harvest
Yes, Petiole Pro was created so that smart people like you, who don't want to waste their time on the routine tasks, can easily check germination counts with just a smartphone camera, to get a big data boost for projects! Let us show you how it works:
1️⃣ Install the app and bring your smartphone to the field, greenhouse, or lab. The app works offline, no internet connection required!
2️⃣ Take a photo of tray. The current version supports 240-cell trays, but we can customize it for your specific needs!
3️⃣ Outline your tray's boundaries, adjust if necessary, and tap "Use tray".
4️⃣ Press "Classify" and in a few minutes, receive data on germinated and non-germinated seeds in the tray.
5️⃣ Tap on any cell for a closer look and explore detailed insights for each cell in the tray.

Here are a few other FAQs we get a lot:

What is the Germination Count module in Petiole Pro?

The Germination Count module is a powerful feature that uses advanced AI and deep learning models to automatically count germination rates from images of seedling trays or germination areas. It streamlines the process of monitoring germination, providing accurate counts in seconds.

Why is accurate germination counting important?

Precise germination counts are crucial for assessing seed viability, monitoring crop establishment, and making informed decisions about planting densities and crop management strategies. Accurate counts help optimize resources, reduce waste, and ultimately improve crop yields and profitability.

Can the Germination Count module be used for different crop types?

Absolutely. The module has a robust foundation and can be adapted for various types of inspections and crop varieties, enhancing the accuracy, frequency, and reliability of germination monitoring across a wide range of plants.

How much does the Germination Count module cost?

Currently, the Germination Count module is free. Our business model is based on a "value-generated fee." This means you pay as much as you are ready to pay for simplifying your routine workflows and processes.

How does the Germination Count module work?

To use the module, simply take a photo of your seedling tray or germination area using your smartphone or tablet. The Petiole Pro app will then analyze the image using cutting-edge deep learning models trained to recognize and count both edible and ornamental young plants with exceptional precision. Within seconds, you'll have an accurate germination count displayed on your device.

Can I verify the accuracy of the count?

Yes, our mobile application allows you to verify the accuracy of the germination count after each inspection. You can manually intervene and adjust any results if needed, ensuring complete control and transparency over the data. Also, you can always count germinated seeds by yourself!

How does AI-powered germination counting benefit growers?

By providing objective germination data, the Germination Count module helps growers optimize the quality of their young plants, reduce waste compared to manual counting methods, and make immediate adjustments to their planning and growing strategies based on reliable, data-driven insights. This ultimately leads to improved yields and more sustainable agricultural practices.

What if I have a different seedling tray size, not the standard 240 cells?

We can adjust the module specifically for you and include this functionality for everyone. Based on your request, other growers will be able to use the same functionality for different tray sizes or germination area configurations. We are committed to continuously improving and expanding the capabilities of the Germination Count module to meet the diverse needs of our users.
