TerrAvion, Servi-Tech Partner to Expand Offerings
TerrAvion takes hundreds of low-altitude flights weekly to capture a bird’s-eye view of a farm. It then uploads those images to the cloud within hours so farmers can make informed decisions. The company not only delivers data, it also provides aerial photographs, NDVI images, thermal images, custom color maps, and histograms at resolutions high enough that you can see an individual plant.
Servi-Tech customers will now have access to those services through a partnership with TerrAvion. Servi-Tech provides agronomic services to over 1,900 growers across seven states. Its crop consulting division has over 1.1 million acres under contract. The company’s labs analyze soil, water, feed, and fertilizers and consult with growers on issues around soil fertility, disease and insect control, irrigation, and data management.
“TerrAvion is providing us with a new way to give our growers NVDI, thermal, and color images, and display them in our data portal,” says Jeff Kugler, CEO of STEPS, LLC.
“TerrAvion’s flights cover larger areas in a much more reliable and cost-effective way than drones or satellites ever could,” says Greg Ruehle, president & CEO for Servi-Tech, Inc. “We are excited to team up with TerrAvion to give our customers the information they need through aerial imagery to make more informed decisions around irrigation, soil quality, and the health of their plants so they can improve their yield each season.”
“Servi-Tech is a leader in crop consulting and understands how vital imagery and timely data is to growers to improving crop yield,” says Robert Morris, CEO of TerrAvion. “We are excited to work with their team and help their customers leverage all types of aerial images to help identify problems before they become serious issues that can impact their bottom line.”
The two companies are also exploring ways to offer imagery solutions to a broader client base. To learn more, visit terravion.com.
