The Climate Corporation announces a partnership with a Canadian drone company.
“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,” Mark Young, chief technology officer for The Climate Corporation said.
The company announced the partnership with Deveron UAS Corp. Wednesday.
Young adds the addition of Deveron supports Climate’s commitment to deliver a true digital ag ecosystem where farmers can access a broad, interconnected set of tools, services and data to optimize all of their farm management decisions.
“Deveron has built a broad network of drones and sensors across North America to provide farmers with more data solutions to manage field variability, and we look forward to working with them to equip more farmers with data-rich imagery insights to make the best decisions for their operations.”
Deveron services are currently offered to farmers across core growing regions of Canada. The company will be expanding its capabilities to the U.S. Corn Belt soon.
During the 2017 growing season, Deveron and Climate completed a successful pilot program in Ontario, allowing farmers to visualize Deveron imagery within their Climate FieldView account.
For the 2018 growing season, this partnership will enable aerial imagery data to
flow into a farmer’s Climate FieldView account at the farmer’s request. It will also allow them to experience deeper analysis of how their crops are performing in-season, alongside important field data layers such as planting and yield data.
