Agribotix to Demonstrate Analytics Technology with Seminis Vegetable Seeds, Inc. at the Brassicas Idea Exchange Event in the Netherlands

BOULDER, Colo., Sept. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Agribotix, an AgEagle Aerial Systems company that provides high-quality analytics and reporting to help growers produce higher yields using less water, chemicals, and other inputs, is demonstrating the benefit of its technology at a third event with Seminis Vegetable Seeds, Inc. (Seminis). Seminis, a Monsanto company now owned by Bayer, is once again bringing growers to a new experiential event with its Brassicas Idea Exchange (iX) September 25th and 26th, 2018, in Enkuizen, Netherlands.

The event is a reinvention of Seminis’ traditional field day, taking a holistic approach to growers’ operations by providing them with industry-leading insights, solutions and networking opportunities that extend well beyond their seed.

At the event, Agribotix will be providing a drone and analytics platform demonstration to reveal crop health issues in the field that may be missed by the naked eye, and at a much lower cost than other forms of remote or even in-field sensing. Drones, modified with a near infrared camera to detect plant health, can survey hundreds of acres per hour, with Agribotix returning a full suite of results in just a few hours.

“Farming is multi-dimensional and complex, so one solution doesn’t fit all,” said Kevin Walsh, Global Technology Development Lead for Recommendations and Support, Seminis. “Working with Agribotix on the Brassicas iX Events has already shown the value of their analytics technology to improve sustainability and increase yields, and we are excited to introduce it to more of our growers. As the agriculture industry moves toward more sustainable farming, we are encouraged by the solutions we can offer through our continued collaboration with Agribotix.”
