Agribotix, AGCO Create Drone-Enabled Ag Intelligence Solution

Posted by Betsy Lillian on September 08, 2015 No Comments

Boulder, Colo.-based Agribotix LLC and Duluth, Ga.-based AGCO have partnered to bring a drone-enabled agricultural intelligence solution to the market.

The all-in-one, turnkey package combines Agribotix’s FarmLens cloud-based data platform with the purpose-built SOLO AGCO edition quadcopter to provide customers with an efficient, reliable way to collect and analyze field data for precision agriculture applications, says Agribotix.

The new package enables users to scout and record aerial field data across up to 60 acres in a single flight. Agricultural imaging cameras capture RGB and near-infrared images. The data collected is uploaded to the FarmLens platform, where it is then processed to produce high-resolution field health reports (a normalized difference vegetation index).

Agribotix provides the platform, service and support for the integrated solution. The SOLO AGCO edition drone, introduced last month, is built on the 3D Robotics Solo platform.
