”Bayer and FaunaPhotonics strongly believe that the joint development of an affordable sensor-based digital solution which allows precise, accurate and efficient insect monitoring including forecasting will be greatly advantageous for growers worldwide. The research and development collaboration is titled Agronomic pest mitigation & non-target effects mitigation strategies using in-field light detection and ranging (LIDAR) based aerial-fauna detection.Read more.

FaunaPhotonics was founded in 2014 by Mikkel Brydegaard Sørensen, Carsten Kirkeby and Frederik Taarnhøj and is located at the Copenhagen Bio Science Park. Bayer is a global enterprise with core competencies in the Life Science fields of health care and agriculture.
