Deveron UAS Corp. and Terramera are announcing a collaboration using drones and data across multiple sites throughout North America for the 2020 growing season. The project will provide Terramera access to Deveron’s turnkey drone data network which includes scalable data collection services across numerous sites in Canada and the United States.
The 2020 project brings multiple solutions to the complexity of agricultural field biology research which tends to cover a wide range of geographies where standardizing data collection protocols and deploying similar hardware and sensors may be difficult. Deveron’s drone data network ensures clients can replicate data collection protocol across multiple locations while also ensuring standardized and comparable data sets without the need for capital investment. “Terramera is committed to reducing the global synthetic pesticide load 80% by 2030 through Actigate, our foundational chemistry platform,” said Karn Manhas, Terramera’s Founder and CEO. “Deveron’s ability to scale and replicate our high standards of data acquisition made them a great choice to collaborate on our trials.”
“Our vision continues to remain focused on expanding a North American network of agriculture data technicians so global leaders like Terramera have a reliable and low-cost network to help validate the incredible products they are creating,” commented David MacMillan, Deveron’s President and CEO. “In-field and on-farm data collection, especially across multiple geographies, poses deployment challenges that Deveron’s team spends most of their days trying to solve. We are thrilled to be working with such an innovative group who has a mission that is so transformational to our industry.”
