TerrAvion and Cloud Agronomics partner in hyperspectral analysis

Cloud Agronomics’ hyperspectral analysis enables TerrAvion’s customers to go beyond NDVI to determine why their plants are stressed and what to do about it.

Cloud Agronomics is TerrAvion’s latest partner offering next-generation agricultural insights on crop performance, crop yields, pricing, and other critical agrarian business decisions.

Hyperspectral-based analytical solutions

TerrAvion’s imagery program provides a platform strategically located across the United States for Cloud Agronomics’ hyperspectral systems and advanced data analytics. Together the two companies aim to provide hyperspectral-based analytical solutions at scale.

Cloud Agronomics offers a full suite of analytical capabilities to customers throughout the agricultural industry. Cloud Agronomics’ hyperspectral analysis enables TerrAvion’s current customers to go beyond NDVI to determine why their plants are stressed and what to do about it.

NPK nutrient quantification and early disease detection

Cloud Agronomics has developed NPK nutrient quantification and early disease detection analytics layers for corn and soybeans for the 2020 agricultural growing season. Furthermore, Cloud Agronomics and TerrAvion offer three types of services to meet the different analytical needs that customers have:

  1. Full Data Cube: For customers with in-house hyperspectral analysis capabilities, TerrAvion and Cloud Agronomics deliver complete hyperspectral data cubes along with 10 cm multispectral maps of fields.
  2. Bespoke Signature Development: For a defined analytical need, Cloud Agronomics develops and sells a proprietary signature for a pathology or circumstance (e.g., a specific plant disease) based on data captured by TerrAvion. This proprietary data is particularly of interest to those who have chemistry or intervention that targets a particular pathology but do not have in-house analytical data.
  3. Managed Platform Prototype (NPK recommendations): the Cloud Agronomics’ platform provides comprehensive insights and can be easily delivered to any other agricultural management platform to broaden existing precision agronomy programs.

Fight crop diseases, and optimise yields

“Cloud Agronomics’ insightful hyperspectral analytics, combined with TerrAvion’s reliable data collection, will bring the agricultural sector into the next level of accessible information that can improve agriculture in many ways,” sais Robert Morris, Founder and CEO TerrAvion. ‘“We are elated to partner with Cloud Agronomics to help enable our customers with critical insights needed to promote sustainable farming, fight crop diseases, and optimise yields.”

“We are excited to partner with TerrAvion, the largest provider of aerial image data to agriculture”, says Jack Roswell, Co-founder, and COO of Cloud Agronomics. “This partnership enables Cloud Agronomics to deliver our analytic insights to a much larger customer base in the United States, and beyond, in years to come enabling growers and ag businesses to improve their business operations efficiently.”
