Farmers Edge – which is based in both Winnipeg, Manitoba, and Shakopee, Minn. – says growers will now have access to drone imagery and actionable data through its FarmCommand software – thus providing another layer of field-centric data for them to make critical decisions for improved crop yields.
“In combining Farmers Edge Precision Solutions with Green Aero Tech’s imagery capabilities, reporting and growing fleet of drones, it means that growers are able to make better land management decisions than ever before,” explains Scott Hiebert, CEO of Green Aero Tech. “This technology will fast become commonplace because it saves time, effort and money while generating the most accurate information possible.”
Using its real-time kinematics survey-grade equipment, Green Aero Tech – which has offices in Swan River, Manitoba, and Whistler, British Columbia – will provide Farmers Edge growers with detailed elevation reports within ±5 cm vertical accuracy.
The service can be integrated alongside the Farmers Edge Precision Solutions platform, which provides a turnkey system that also includes variable rate technology; soil sampling and analysis; field-centric weather; in-field telematics and data transfer; high-resolution satellite imagery; field-centric data analytics; and access to FarmCommand, the integrated farm management platform.
