The Climate Corp., a Missouri-based agtech company, announced plans to partner with Deveron, a Canada-based drone company, to provide advanced aerial imagery to growers. Deveron’s fleet of drones, which can conduct five to eight flights per day, will provide imagery at higher resolutions and frequency than what Climate Corp.’s Climate FieldView platform can currently provide with satellite imagery, according to a release.
“As remote sensing through advanced imagery continues its fast-paced development, drones are increasingly playing an important role to help farmers gain deeper insights into crop performance at scale,” said Mark Young, Climate Corp.’s Chief Technology Officer.
Climate Corp. also recently announced it was launching a new digital partnership with AGCO to help bring big data to farmers across the U.S. These partnerships provide customers with real time visualization of farm data from as-planted maps to yield maps as well as access to a well-established digital agriculture platform where customers can compare data and make agronomic decisions for the next season.
The use of drones, satellites and data is transforming farming as we know it. Missouri companies are leading the way in investment and innovation in advanced farming. Big data, smart farming, input optimization, precision ag, prescription ag, biologicals, breeding, green chemistry, green pharmaceuticals – it’s all growing right here.
And its not just technology that makes Missouri the global agtech leader, its also our world-class talent. Universities across the state offer advanced plant science degrees and Missouri is home to the highest concentration of plant science PhDs in the world.
