Based on the reports from the Geosys crop analysts, there were three key factors that attributed to the success this growing season.
We were honored to participate in The Wall Street Journal Global Food Forum 2017. See key points from the Connecting the Farm session and gain access to footage from the event.
Providing clients with advanced data and views of their fields is no longer a luxury, but an expectation that insurers use technology to help manage risk.
As I consider pivotal moments in Ag technology, as well as my own experiences during our 30 years of business at Geosys, I find that three key principles hold true.
In 1987, Damien Lepoutre – with support from the School of Agriculture of Purpan, France – officially registered GEOSYS as a company in Toulouse, France. He envisioned a company devoted entirely to agriculture by addressing business problems with remote sensing and GIS technologies.
We are proud to announce GEOSYS has entered a long-term agreement with UrtheCast as the agriculture anchor customer for the UrtheDaily Constellation.
According to AgFunder, investments in agriculture technology reached $4.6B in 2015, supporting an influx of technology providers in agriculture – particularly as it relates to optical remote sensing of crops.
A CropLife article titled Roadblocks To Precision Ag Innovation recently caught our attention. Editor Paul Schrimpf discusses some challenges he faced involving farmers in the PrecisionAg Innovation Series event and relates it to the challenges of pushing more innovations to farmers.
This year, the InfoAg conference was held in conjunction with the 13th International Conference on Precision Agriculture. The two events bring together academics and scientists from around the world in addition to agronomists and large growers.
Big data is a big deal. And understandably so – it is changing virtually every aspect of our lives. And agriculture is no exception. We get this. We do it. Everyday. GEOSYS makes close to 1 petabyte (PB) of satellite imagery data available, live, real-time. That’s the equivalent to 1,000,000 pickup trucks filled with paper that you can search through in milliseconds.
While many in the business of satellite-based remote sensing would like you to believe the answer to that question is “not much,” GEOSYS has the benefit of nearly 30 year of experience in the industry – and confidence in its own abilities – to take a more objective look at the technology.
A whitepaper released today titled Beyond the Hype: How Agricultural Technology Wins Customers and Creates Value explores the adoption challenges that agtech companies face with their farmer customers, and the go-to-market strategy implications for new and developing technologies.
A recent Reuters article titled Digital farming could spell shake-up for crop chemicals sector considers how new technology affects the amount of inputs growers use and highlights a number of digital farming providers who “all aim to provide farmers with individualized prescriptions on how to work each field down to a fraction of an acre.” This begs the question: is farming something that can be prescribed and executed at this level of granularity?
NAAI - the single nationwide association of insurers in Russia, counting 18 ag insurance companies - initiates new practices and confirms its partnership with GEOSYS™ to support this historical change.
GEOSYS attended the Grains Research update in Adelaide, Wagga Wagga and Bendigo this month, organized by the Grains Research & Development Corporation (GRDC).
GEOSYS has been busy these last few weeks attending the Precision Ag Innovation Series in St Louis, MO, the Western Canadian Crop Production Show in Saskatoon, SK and the United Suppliers Technology Exchange in Dallas, TX.
A common question we hear is “what is the real value of NDVI-based vegetative imagery?” It’s a fair question when some in the industry are giving away the data for free.
