Taranis, the global leader in AI-powered crop intelligence, announces the appointment of Vern Hawkins to its Board of Directors, effective February 15, 2024. Hawkins, currently serving as Syngenta’s President of Crop Protection and Regional Director of North America, brings extensive international agricultural leadership to Taranis.
Nutrien Digital Scout Powered by Taranis couples artificial intelligence with digital images to bring scouting down to the plant level.
From 2020 with only a few farmers participating to covering millions of acres in 2023, Taranis says it wants to help retailers and farmers understand every decision with analytics via its AcreForward technologies. Via its multiple drone flights through the growing season, Taranis has built its product layering artificial intelligence, computer learning and agronomic knowledge.
If you’re a fan of TikTok videos, Tyler Tobald of JTAC Farms does a great job of breaking through the marketing to give unpaid and unsolicited, honest on-farm reviews of equipment, technology, and practices.
Without autonomous technology, spot spraying large fields would be unmanageable for many operations. With products like Taranis, not only is this possible, it’s less expensive, less time consuming and provides the farmer with valuable and accurate field data.
“Whether it’s a drone, a plane, or a satellite, Taranis is your best bet because we not only make sense of the data from your acres, but we bring the right partners to the table so you can engage with that data and make an actionable decision,” says Mike DiPaola, Chief Commercial Officer with Taranis, which is headquartered in Westfield, Indiana, north of Indianapolis.
