Peabody, Mass., Feb. 9, 2015—AgJunction has teamed up with GeoVantage to put on-demand color, infrared and NDVI imagery in the hands of its precision agriculture focused customers. The AgJunction platform now has a direct connection to GeoVantage’s automated operations software that tasks planes nationwide to capture and deliver “actionable” farm field imagery within days of ordering. This quick turnaround imagery solution adds a valuable, near real-time, layer of data to the AgJunction platform allowing for more accurate decisions on management zones, variable rate applications and other precision agriculture initiatives. A few simple clicks from an AgJunction user will give them access to GeoVantage’s fleet of over twenty airplanes with hi-tech cameras strategically placed throughout the US, ready to capture a custom image of their farm field.
“GeoVantage aerial imagery is an excellent tool to see what is happening in your field. Whether it is something you can repair this season or prevent next season, finding out what worked and what didn’t is crucial. The AgJunction platform is a powerful tool. By adding in our on-demand imagery, customers can utilize it to its full extent.” Says Matt Sweeney, Business Development Manager – Agriculture for GeoVantage Inc.
“Providing our clients access to all available data solutions has always been a key goal of the AgJunction solution. By integrating with GeoVantage we now have the ability to place on-demand imagery order requests direct through the platform and then have the data auto-processed and associated to the user’s fields. We feel the efficiency and ease of this process will help users spend less time obtaining data and more time making effective data decisions.
