Agribotix Partnership with The Nature Conservancy Provides Drone-Enabled Aerial Survey, Processing, and Analytics
– Emerging Agricultural Intelligence Market Leader’s Contribution will Enable Tracking of Vegetation and Wildlife on Conservation Group’s Properties –
BOULDER, COLO, February 9, 2016 – Agribotix LLC is providing The Nature Conservancy with drones, image processing, data analytics and consulting to assist with aerial surveys for the organization’s conservation work.
Agribotix provides complete drone-enabled agricultural intelligence solutions to farmers and agricultural service providers. While their core market is agriculture, their hardware and data processing technology is well suited for land management applications. Through the partnership agreement, Agribotix will provide Enduro™ quad copter drones and supply FarmLens™ image processing, consulting and onsite support.
Agribotix Founder and CTO, Tom McKinnon, said, “We are delighted to help The Nature Conservancy with their land conservation efforts. Their need to track vegetation on their preserves is perfectly aligned with Agribotix’s imaging and reporting capabilities and technical expertise. We look forward to eventually extending the partnership to include wildlife tracking on The Nature Conservancy’s properties.”
“Drones have helped make our work more efficient while also providing advanced mapping capabilities we haven’t had before,” said Gustavo Lozada, technology and information services operations manager for The Nature Conservancy. “For example, drones help us survey places that are very difficult to reach on foot. I am excited about the partnership with Agribotix and look forward to working with them to discover new ways that their technology can help further our conservation goals.”
Founded in Boulder, Colorado, in 2013, Agribotix LLC delivers agricultural intelligence to increase yields and profits using drone-enabled technologies. All Agribotix solutions include FarmLens,™ a leading cloud-based data analysis and reporting solution for people using drones in agriculture.
