Agribotix and senseFly have announced their Gateway to Precision Ag promotion for the U.S. and Canada. Designed to help growers and retailers get ahead of the 2018 growing season, the promotion offers a discount on a package of tools enabling professionals to begin working with drones now, the companies say.
“Precision programs are significantly more effective when they introduce new tools in-season during slower periods,” explains Agribotix’s founder and chief technology officer, Dr. Tom McKinnon. “This allows professionals to work the tools into their operations efficiently and gain insights for the following year.”
The Gateway to Precision Ag package includes the senseFly eBee SQ agricultural drone; the Parrot Sequoia multispectral camera; and a four-month, professional-level subscription to FarmLens, Agribotix’s agricultural software platform. With savings of more than 10%, the package is available for the discounted price of $9,490, the companies say.
“Our aim was to bring together everything necessary to start producing meaningful agricultural reports,” comments Troy Hittle, senseFly’s sales manager for North America. “Working with Agribotix, we’re able to support those professionals who want to get started with drones this season, allowing them to experience the technology over established crops and be well positioned for 2018.”
The eBee SQ also features a Sunshine Sensor to account for light variability and, when paired with FarmLens, will produce calibrated images, allowing for a much more powerful comparison of fields both over time and against other fields. FarmLens enables results to be viewed online, shared via e-mail, or distributed in a printed report that can include in-field images and specific recommendations.
The Gateway to Precision Ag promotion is available now until Sept. 15.
