Plantix is a plant diagnostic App developed by PEAT. The App provides users worldwide with customized information concerning best practices, information on preventive measures and independent options for action. Plantix offers the possibility to send pictures of affected plants directly via smartphone and guides through an identification process to determine the plant disease in a very simple manner. All pictures sent via the App are tagged with coordinates.

The resulting metadata provides valuable insights into the spatial distribution of cultivated crops and most significant plant diseases e.g. in form of high resolution maps. Furthermore Plantix aim to get a deeper understanding of the relations between plant diseases and geofactors by the intersection of the gathered information.
