Agribotix Your Farmlens™ Image Processing And Analytics Solution For Agriculture Drives Productivity, Profitability
Global Demand for Agricultural Intelligence Platform Grows as Farmers, Ag Service Providers Embrace Technology to Make Data-Driven Decisions in the Field
BOULDER, COLO., March 8, 2016 – From its headquarters where the Colorado Rocky Mountains meet the Great Plains, Agribotix LLC is reshaping the way coffee is grown near Bangalore, India, row crops in Brazil, and everything from cotton, to citrus, to soybeans and corn in the United States.
Agribotix processes and analyzes agricultural data gathered by drones via its FarmLens™ cloud-based data analysis and reporting solution. The resulting intelligence is applied to increase yields, reduce input costs, and maximize profits while reducing the environmental footprint.
Agribotix offers a “white label” version of its platform, called Your FarmLens™ to drone and agricultural service providers that have farmer customers. The service generates prescription maps for in-season fertilization, weed reports for geolocating resistant patches and estimating coverage, and specialized reporting such as thermal imaging, digital surface models, and historical weather data.
At a recently concluded coffee conference in Mumbai, Jaisimha Rao, coffee plantation owner and founder of TartanSense, calls Your FarmLens a game changer. “Before drones, we made decisions without data to support them. Now we can eliminate wasted inputs, maximize our yields and increase profits,” he said.
“Coffee plantations are large. Gathering data with drones gives us a level of detail about the entire field we didn’t have before,” said Rao. “When we upload images to our TartanSense FarmLens platform, we get back a nice map that shows the farmer precisely where he needs to take action.”
In Brazil, Luciano da Silveira Araujo is CEO of Elio, a company that provides agricultural insights to producers. “With the Elio FarmLens, drone service providers have access to a complete image processing and data analytics system. It’s an incredible tool for us to find new customers. We work with some large producers in Brazil, with more than 150,000 hectares in cultivation. We chose Agribotix because they have an incredible team, and it’s reflected in their products.”
Back in the US, Phil Stiles, President of SkyViewHD, touts the advantages of the Your FarmLens™ solution. “Our crews can fly fields anywhere in the US and within a matter of hours, our clients can come to our website and see actionable data. It’s a seamless interaction with our clients. The sophistication and quick turnaround enhances customer perception of our company. It’s a fantastic user experience for the grower, and for us, with increased revenue plus reduced IT costs. Too often, technology companies develop solutions for problems that don’t exist, whereas Agribotix created a solution that is exactly what the grower needs, and of course, enhances our relationships with our clients.”
