Geospatial solutions provider RapidEye, in partnership with France-based consulting and services company S2Bvisio, will be collaborating on initiatives that will further expand available services to growers in the country.
S2Bvisio and RapidEye have been partnering for several years, and are working on the development of value-added products for canola and cereal crops. Ongoing research and development activities are concentrating on cereals, sunflower and sugar beet crops and focus on nitrogen fertilization, irrigation and yield prediction. French specialized research institutes are also involved in many of these projects.
In the near future, work will expand into projects focused on pasture monitoring and biomass management, as well as the development of services for agricultural operators, processors and other key players in the agricultural world.
“The innovation and the flexibility of the Visioplaine platform merged with the satellite-based expertise of RapidEye offers a quality and an availability of field-based data which is unique in France,” says Marie-Joseph Lambert, head of marketing at S2Bvisio. Visioplaine is a Web-based software platform that farmers and ag organizations can use to register and process field-based data in myriad ways, including administrative management, traceability, agronomic management, business tools, embedded informatics and remote sensing.

“We are confident in our solid, ongoing partnership with S2Bvisio for the development of agricultural services in France. This partnership opens important opportunities for the future,” says Clint Graumann, Head of Sales for RapidEye.
