Crop protection company Adama and precision agriculture startup Taranis, have announced a global partnership to develop a full service package solution to optimise farming practices and decrease costs through precision agriculture.
The collaboration reflects Adama’s decision to work with Taranis as a strategic partner, utilising the company’s advanced aerial imagery scouting to expand their worldwide reach and enhance Adama’s end-to-end services and solutions.
Continuously working to evolve its products and provide innovative solutions to the world’s farmers, Adama’s new end-to-end solution is an important milestone in realising its vision for bringing effective solutions that meet farmers’ most pressing needs, says the company.
Dani Harari, SVP Resources and Strategy at Adama, said; “We are happy to expand our partnership with Taranis to provide growers and ag professionals with a solution that enables the effective and efficient use of agricultural inputs, an important part of every farmer’s success. The combination of Taranis’ innovative precision technology and extensive database of crop threats, together with Adama’s vast portfolio, global reach and deep domain expertise will further extend the value we bring to farmers all over the world.”
Taranis utilises its patented scouting technology to capture aerial imagery at sub-millimeter resolution, detecting field ailments such as weeds, insects, disease, and fertiliser deficiencies or growth conditions such as emergence, row coverage and more. The company’s Artificial Intelligence-driven technologies then analyse the images and provide accurate actionable insights from the field directly to the farmer. Using deep-learning technology combined with high-speed UAVs and manned aircrafts, Taranis already enables farmers to predict and prevent threats to over 20 million acres worldwide on a granular level.
“By partnering with Adama, we will be able to expand our offerings, supplying farmers across the world with the most robust, end-to-end crop monitoring solutions,” says Ofir Schlam, CEO and Co-founder of Taranis. “We are excited to share our expertise and accumulated data with Adama’s existing client base and with a whole new group of farmers.”
