Deveron UAS Corp. has entered into a partnership and distribution agreement with Airinov to provide North American growers with a solution for managing in-season crop nutrient applications.
The offering will use high-resolution imagery collected by unmanned aircraft system (UAS) to drive nitrogen-placement decisions in crops such as wheat, barley, oats and canola.
Airinov, based in France, provides drone-based digital agriculture solutions. Parrot acquired a stake in the company in 2014.
“We are excited to be offering our customers yet another product which provides easy, turnkey solutions to add to their digital tool boxes,” comments Deveron’s president and CEO, David MacMillan. “The North American cereals and canola markets represent over 100 million acres. As precision agriculture begins to take hold across all crops, we see a tremendous growth opportunity for Deveron through this partnership”.
Based in Ontario, Deveron is an agriculture technology company that provides data acquisition services and data analytics to the farming sector in North America. Through its on-demand network of drone pilots and soil-sampling technicians, the company provides scalable data acquisition solutions in the imagery and soil space. Additionally, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Veritas Farm Management, the company provides growers in North America with independent data analytics and insights.
