"Our goal has been to bring North American leaders from the agriculture industry together to find ways to provide value to growers using data," commented David MacMillan, President & CEO of Deveron. "Art and David bring a phenomenal amount of experience to our team in commercializing new products in agriculture. Our entire team is looking forward to working with them as we expand Deveron's data service network in North America."
Art Froehlich commented "In all my years in agriculture, I have seen a lot of new technology introduced to farms across North America. I see drones as another transformative idea that will bring new forms of information to farmers, enabling them to make more efficient decisions. From my involvement in some of the first forms of transgenic canola technology to various improvements in livestock and row crop, I'm looking forward to seeing how drones may have similar impact on North American farms."
"Agricultural productivity is advancing at an incredible rate. Integration of technologies will further increase speed of change. Farmers' ability to lead change is being driven by adoption of technology" commented David Sippell. "I believe Deveron and its drone data services are perfectly positioned to be the next great integrator and their customers will increasingly adopt data based precision farming technology. With leadership from the Deveron team, farm productivity will continue to improve as drone collected data ensures efficiency of inputs, to maximize quality and yield."
