Aerobotics offers pest and disease management system for farmers

Precision agriculture company Aerobotics was named one of the thirteen start-ups to watch at this years’ World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit. The Summit will take place March 19 and 20, 2019 in San Francisco, California.

Aerobotics will be featured as part of the Summit’s acclaimed TechHub. The TechHub features companies with a dedicated and branded meeting point in the networking area, which promotes opportunities for connections with the investment and global agri community. This also positions Aerobotics at the Summit as a key innovator in the agtech sector.

“Having only recently launched our operations in the United States, it is exciting to receive recognition here as one of the top companies to watch at the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit,” said Aerobotics CEO James Paterson. “We are looking forward to showcasing the technology we have built for tree and vine farmers in the United States and around the world.”

Aerobotics processes data from drone and satellite imagery through its proprietary artificial intelligence software to discover and analyse problems, pests and diseases affecting individual trees or vines on a farm. In addition to health, the software also measures size, height and canopy volume. This type of highly accurate data empowers farmers to make better decisions in the field, so they can increase their yield and produce a more balanced crop.

As part of its participation at the Summit, Aerobotics will be exhibiting and presenting to members of the agriculture and technology community. As part of its aggressive approach to the United States’ agriculture market in 2019, Aerobotics will be appearing at various other conference and meetings throughout the United States.

“We believe 2019 is the year of aerial imagery in the agriculture industry. We are doing everything we can to grow our presence and spread the word about how our technology is helping tree and vine farmers around the world,” said Aerobotics CFO and Head of Growth Tim Willis. “From conferences to content production to partnerships, we are making sure as many people as possible in the United States and around the world know about Aerobotics and how we are working hard to provide value to the industry.”

The World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit is an international conference, networking and deal-making event for agribusinesses, solution providers, entrepreneurs and investors. The Summit is held each year to assist with accelerating the commercialization of advanced agricultural technologies by generating global partnerships and collaborations.
