Taranis, a leading precision agriculture company, and BASF, a major seed and chemical industry leader worldwide, announced today their partnership to provide farmers in Brazil with cutting-edge, go-to-market crop monitoring solutions. The partnership signals the expansion of Taranis’ operations in the Brazilian market and will later focus on other global regions.
Taranis’ precision agricultural intelligence platform utilizes deep-learning technology combined with high-speed UAVs and manned aircrafts to provide farmers with unprecedented insights around seed emergence, weeds, insect damage, nutrition deficiency and more. Those insights enable farmers to predict and prevent threats to over 20 million acres of crops on a granular level, using forecasting models and technical recommendations to improve crop yields.
“We are thrilled to be working together with BASF, one of the largest seed and chemical industry leaders in the world, bringing together high-quality, unprecedented in-season insights and valuable historical data so that farmers can monitor the evolution of their crops from year to year, to learn the best methods to increase productivity,” says Ofir Schlam, CEO and Co-founder of Taranis. “With our technology, farmers will be able to take pre-emptive actions against diseases, pests and weeds in the field—thereby increasing their yield and minimize costs.”
