108,000 Reasons to Believe

As part of our Innovate UK Smart Grant project to develop synthetic data solutions that can identify weeds within crops (in this case specifically blackgrass), we worked with the wonderful folks at Oxford Agricultural Trials (OAT). The OAT team undertook three trials for us across Oxfordshire; at Woodstock, Stratton Audley & Shillington.

Celebrating their 40th anniversary (so they know what they’re doing), the team captured over 108,000 high quality images from structured plots that allow us to classify both wheat & blackgrass in every image.

In that regard it is probably the largest structured blackgrass image dataset in the world!

My thanks to all the OAT team but particularly Chris Kay, CEO, here pictured with me.

Much more to come from us at AgriSynth…!
