March 18, 2015 — BlackBridge announced its partnership with FarmLogs, a farm management software and data-science company, to provide the U.S. with satellite imagery for crop health and field performance analysis.
Through the partnership, FarmLogs will leverage BlackBridge’s Monitoring Program for Agriculture over the U.S., with access to five-meter, multi-spectral RapidEye satellite imagery collected on a frequent basis throughout the growing season, as well as more than six years of historical imagery. FarmLogs will then extract and analyze crop-relevant information to help farmers maximize productivity and field profitability. “We’ve recently introduced FarmLogs Advantage, a new version of FarmLogs that utilizes this satellite imagery data to help our users better understand crop health and performance,” said Jesse Vollmar, CEO and co-founder of FarmLogs.
“With regard to remote sensing, one of the most significant challenges in the precision agriculture industry during the last two decades has been to deliver sufficient quantities of imagery in a timely manner at a broad scale,” said Clint Graumann, director of North America, U.K. and Ireland at BlackBridge. “FarmLogs does a great job at analyzing big data and making it meaningful at the field level. With our combined capabilities, we are meeting that challenge head on.”
