Serveon debuts SABI ag data collection system

Agriculture.com Staff 10/03/2006 @ 9:09am

Serveon Inc., maker of application development products and provider of information technology services for the agricultural industry, has introduced the Serveon Advanced Business Intelligence (SABI) data collection system.

The products, SABI Mobile and the SABI Field Trial System (SABI FTS), powered by Serveon, provide scouting tools for data collection, management and reporting. Both are immediately available and are sold on a subscription basis.

SABI Mobile is a GPS wireless handheld unit, using a Pharos 525E, that sells for $1,200 per annual subscription. With the purchase of a two-year subscription, Serveon donates the hardware unit. SABI Mobile is a tool to allows growers, regulators and researchers to collect, observe, measure and map field data. SABI FTS is the offline data collection system that can be used in contract research, field efficacy or plant variety trials.

The SABI Mobile System is currently used to power the "Ag Certification Network" for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. With funding from their Technical Assistance for Specialty Crops (TASC) program, this system tracks the prevalence of critical pests such as fruit flies, canker and greening on citrus in Florida. The technology was developed in partnership with Ecostat, Inc. and is sponsored by the Indian River Citrus League. The Florida Department of Agriculture and the University of Florida provide field support.

"The focus in developing the SABI system was to provide subscribers of all types, from growers and researchers to regulators and manufacturers, the best possible way to collect, measure and map real-time data using a consistent platform that can be shared without additional expense or effort," says Daniel Hart, Serveon CEO.
