Ceres Imaging Announces New Features to Help Farmers Turn Data into Action
Ceres Imaging is a farming solutions company that helps growers and farm advisers make proactive decisions using aerial imagery and data analytics.
Connor Lankford, precision ag manager at Valley Agronomics says, “We’ve trialed a number of imagery providers in the past and have found Ceres Imaging to be the most reliable partner to work with. The new product features for the 2020 season help ensure that Valley Agronomics customers will receive meaningful insights when they need them.”
In preparation for the 2020 growing season, growers and farm advisers now have access to:
- Offline imagery: Full app features in the field — including notes and pictures — even without cell service
- Improved chlorophyll index: Improved accuracy of this nutrient management layer, now standard for all customers
- Enhanced flight details: Enhanced transparency of flight schedules, confirmed flight dates, completed flights, and delivered imagery
- New client onboarding portal: Simplified portal to manage users and upload field and crop information into the Ceres Imaging app
Ceres Imaging has also made additions to the Specialty Crop Analytics Suite, including a new year-over-year change analysis to help growers identify weak areas in tree nut or stone fruit orchards by tracking changes of canopy cover and other indicators.
The Cumulative Stress Index, which helps identify areas of yield variability in tree nuts, will also be extended to all Full Season and Enterprise Management customers.
New features in the Center-Pivot Analytics Suite include an expanded zone creation tool that uses colored infrared data to understand soil variation in the field, create zone maps, and guide off-season nutrient applications.
“Ceres Imaging has always focused on prioritizing research and the highest accuracy imagery analytics to help growers solve problems with confidence,” says Ceres Imaging CEO Ashwin Madgavkar. “This suite of core product improvements further puts growers in the driver’s seat to find solutions to a never-ending set of challenges.”
