Raven Industries announced that its Applied Technology division has been named the worldwide exclusive distribution partner for AgEagle Aerial Systems, a provider of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) used in precision agriculture. This partnership will allow Raven to expand into the UAS market by enhancing its product offering to provide actionable data that customers can use to make important input and variable rate decisions.

AgEagle’s simple-to-use UAS technology captures aerial maps of crop health in a field, identifying areas of stress before they can be seen by the naked eye. By providing real-time, easy-to-acquire data to growers, agronomists and other service providers, AgEagle (who we picked as one of the Top 15 Companies to watch in Precision Agriculture in 2016) helps pinpoint areas where nutrients or chemicals need to be applied, increasing profitability. The images are easy to import and utilize with many agricultural software platforms, making it simple for growers and service providers to put the data to use quickly and efficiently.

“AgEagle’s innovative technology is at the forefront of the UAS market, and we couldn’t be more excited to play a role in their success,” said Brian Meyer, Division Vice President and General Manager of Raven Applied Technology. “Together, we will help make crop health data actionable and relevant, which in turn will help decrease inputs and increase yields for growers. That’s what Raven has always been about—helping the customer do more with less.”

“AgEagle is excited to distribute our fixed wing solution through Raven, one of the top precision agriculture companies in the world,” said Bret Chilcott, CEO of AgEagle Aerial Systems. “We believe this partnership is a tremendous validation of our team and our products. Raven and AgEagle have the same focus, mission and passion, and together, through the use of better actionable data for the growers, we will effect change in feeding the world.”
