ServiTech and Sentera form crop monitoring and field imagery partnership

Benefits include counting tassels for yield estimation, validating plant emergence.

ServiTech, Inc. has formed a long-term partnership with Sentera. Under the agreement, FieldAgent by Sentera will deliver field imagery, crop health monitoring, and change detection technology to support the ServiTech Bridge platform. 
 
ServiTech will leverage Sentera technology that includes satellite and ultra-high-resolution imagery. This will provide critical insights into the health of a crop and inform better in-season management decisions, say company officials. ServiTech’s agronomists will leverage these insights through the Bridge platform, allowing them to observe and detect field issues in real time to better serve the company’s grower clients, say company officials. 

Additional benefits to growers include:

  • Counting tassels for yield estimation
  • Validating actual plant emergence vs. as-planted population goals
  • Providing in-season data to prescribe better solutions and improve yields

“Since launching Bridge in 2019, ServiTech has received a great response from our customer base about how implementing technology is important to thrive as a modern farming operation, and these new, advanced services from Sentera will allow growers to make intelligent decisions on fields at a level not possible before,” said Greg Ruehle, ServiTech president and CEO, in a news release. 
 
FieldAgent by Sentera delivers time-sensitive agricultural insights that optimize decisions and improve outcomes, say company officials. FieldAgent enables agronomic advisers to continuously monitor fields, efficiently deploy scouting resources, quickly collaborate with stakeholders, accurately validate treatment efficacy, and positively support economic crop input decision making, say company officials. 
 
“We are excited to partner with ServiTech in its mission to help growers make tough decisions,” said Dallas Ford, director of business development at Sentera, in a news release. “Our team is focused on supporting ServiTech and its experienced team of agronomists to overcome the issues facing agriculture today.”
