To understand why this is an exciting new option, consider what it's like to be a modern row crop farmer. These independent businesspeople are often tending several thousand acres of land in dozens of fields spread over an even larger area because much of it is rented ground not adjoining the “home place.”
Taranis’ AcreForward Intelligence uses real-time imagery from multiple sources, such as drones, planes, and satellites, to identify insect damage on a per-leaf basis, detect weeds before they become a problem, find nutrient deficiencies, and count the number of plants in a field so farmers can make informed decisions about planting and usage of inputs.
As the Hoosier Ag Today team reports from Kansas City at the National Association of Farm Broadcasters convention, one of the companies that is being featured at the convention is Taranis, which is based out of Westfield, Indiana.
