Two years ago ADAMA Ltd. a global leader in crop protection, partnered with precision agriculture software specialists Agremo to launch ‘ADAMA Eagle Eye’ – a drone analytics farming platform, now the companies are rolling it out to six new countries. The joint solution offers an advanced AI-based analysis of aerial data and imagery that helps growers protect yields more efficiently through user-friendly maps, statistics and other practical tools.
Yalon Perelman, AgTech Project Manager at ADAMA elaborates “In 2021, ADAMA Eagle Eye powered by Agremo, will roll-out in 6 new countries in addition to the US. Agremo’s pilot network makes it possible to perform a more significant number of missions at a lower cost in wide geographical deployment. The ability to translate reliable information from the field into actionable and accurate data, enables ADAMA’s teams to demonstrate the performance of its products while sharing the results with growers.”
The Agremo software extracts critical information from a drone map to provide different field and crop reports into the ADAMA Eagle Eye system. The reports illustrate a number of actionable details which as well as pest, drought and water logging status include:
Flowering Analysis – accurate data on the percentage of plants that have reached flowering stage, yield estimations and forecasts for optimal harvest time.
- Stand Count – the precise number of plants in a specific area enabling seed quality evaluation, field damage and zones with potential yield losses.
- Nitrogen Status Analysis – data on health variations within field zones which can be utilised alongside soil samples to deliver precise spraying and fertilizing.
- Plant Disease Analysis enabled easy location of plants hit by diseases such as those caused by viruses, fungi, or bacteria.
Agremo CEO, Dr. Milan Dobrota said “Sharing data and collaboration through Agremo is straightforward and intuitive. Our system ensures transparency and builds trust between Ag professionals regardless of their location. Remote accessing crop data, sharing of the analytics, visualization, and historical data, make decision making and crop management much easier, especially during the challenging COVID period.”
Georgiana Francescotti, Head of Global AgTech and Digital Services at ADAMA, says: “We are happy to expand our partnership with Agremo, to provide growers and Ag-professionals tools that enable effective and efficient use of agricultural inputs, which is an important part of every farmer’s success.”
