Reduce Dependence on Labor
With our automated thinner, a single operator, and a tractor, you'll accomplish the same work normally done by 20–30 people. Precision sprayers apply a kill spray to unwanted plants and a beneficial spray to desired plants. Here are the key features of the Mantis Thinner:
- Captures crops of any color using multispectral cameras
- Handles any row configuration, up to 8 seed lines per bed
- Reconfigures in minutes for field layout changes
- Intelligent plant selection based on size, color, and position
Growth Through Data
While the Mantis automated thinner works in your field, it records valuable data that can be used to supplement your growing decisions. Examples include:
- Average Plant-to-Plant Spacing
- Plants Per Acre
- Average Plant Size
- Map Detailing Areas of Poor Growth
Sales & Services
Mantis Automated Thinners are available for lease or purchase. Built with your needs in mind, they provide an application tailored to your farming operation.
In addition to selling and leasing our equipment, we also provide a per-acre thinning service using a fleet of our own equipment. Our thinning service is currently available in the Salinas Valley, Huron, Imperial Valley, and Yuma. We're proud to offer services that are not only cost-effective, but backed by customer service, integrity, and commitment to our growers.
Pest Control Advisors
While our innovative technology, convenient location and competitive pricing all provide incredible value, you’ll hear from growers that our skilled PCAs (pest control advisors) are what truly set us apart from the competition. You'll find them out surveying fields before and after an operation and working right alongside the growers during the thinning process. We value the trust that our growers put in us with their crops, and our PCAs are dedicated to providing exceptional results.
