Agribotix LLC and Lankota said they have partnered to distribute turnkey drone-enabled agricultural intelligence technologies and services to tractor dealers in the US, Canada, and Australia.
The all-in-one package combines Agribotix´s FarmLensâ¢ cloud-based data platform with their purpose-built Enduroâ¢ quadcopter to provide retailers with a fully supported, efficient, agricultural analytics solution.
Agribotix provides the platform, service and support. Users can scout and record aerial field data across up to 160 acres in a single flight. The quadcopter can capture simultaneously near-infrared and RGB (standard visual) images. The data collected is uploaded to the FarmLensâ¢ platform, where it is processed to produce high-resolution Field Health Reports (NDVI), essential for early identification of yield-limiting problems, and shapefiles needed for variable application prescriptions. These reports can be used to address issues and optimize inputs, leading to improved crop yields and increased profits for growers.
Founded in Boulder, Colorado, in 2013, Agribotix LLC delivers agricultural intelligence to increase yields and profits using drone-enabled technologies. All Agribotix solutions include FarmLensâ¢, the leading cloud-based data analysis and reporting solution for people using drones in agriculture. Outputs include prescription maps for in-season fertilization, weed reports for geolocating resistant patches and estimating coverage, and specialized reporting.
Established in 2001 as a family owned business, driven by an agricultural heritage in Huron, South Dakota, Lankota is a multifaceted organization that manufactures and technically supports a broad range of after-market agricultural products solutions worldwide.
