Dimensions Agri Technologies (DAT) AS is a Norwegian technology company with international ambitions within precision farming. The DAT–sensor will reduce the use of herbicide by an average of 50% — by enabling simultaneous detection and spraying of weeds. Use of the DAT-sensor will reduce production costs for the farmer, can increase yields, and will reduce environmental impact.
The Company History
Initiated by local farmers in Norway, the development of this system was quickly joined by the research institutions NIBIO (then Bioforsk) and SINTEF. Later the mechatronic firm ADIGO also became a partner and shareholder. DAT is currently organized as a joint effort between owners, each contributing funding, manpower, and other resources as appropriate.
The DAT-sensor is patented in Norway and the USA; patent pending in Europe.
