Hemp growers have a new tool that can help them track plant growth and make any necessary lighting or nutrient adjustments.
Epazz, Inc., a provider of blockchain cryptocurrency mobile apps and cloud-based business software solutions, says its latest patent-pending technology is a new device that uses smartphones to measure the growth rate of hemp plants from either drones and cable cameras.
The device can be attached to a smartphone, drone, or cable camera. On the back of the phone, there are a series of lasers which act as a basal area factor and dendrometer. The device transmits data to the smartphone camera in order to display the growth rate of the assigned plant on the screen of the smartphone. The user is able to log the growth of the plant and see if the environment needs to be adjusted in order to improve the growth factor of the plant.
This technology would automate the monitor and tracking of hemp plants. The patent also covers the use of attachments on live video feeds and a cloud application for larger facilities.
Epazz is using ZenaPay Plant Tracker app, which can be modified in order to comply with rules and regulations for industrial hemp.
Hemp is nearly identical to marijuana. American Farmers will be able to grow hemp legally in the US. They will need software to track the plant and provide data to the US government. According to Business Insider, Industrial hemp is expected to be a 1 billion dollar industry.
Epazz CEO, Shaun Passley, Ph.D., said, “We are excited about the launch of this app, and the features that make it usable in smartphones and drones.”
