Precision agriculture firm Aerobotics has reached the milestone of processing ten million trees and vines with its software.
The announcement was officially made by Aerobotics’ CFO and head of growth Tim Willis as part of the AfricaCom event at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.
Willis explained how he thinks that Aerobotics’ proprietary artificial intelligence software gets stronger and more efficient the more data that is processed.
He said: “Today, we are proud to announce that we have processed 10 million trees in Aerobotics’ software, making our artificial intelligence and solutions stronger and more efficient.”
He added: “This is not just a major milestone for our company because of the massive number of trees we have processed, but also for the agriculture industry as we are better positioned to help tree and vine farmers around the world.”
Aerobotics processes data from drone and satellite imagery through its proprietary artificial intelligence software to discover and analyse problems, pests and diseases affecting individual trees or vines on a farm.
The information gathered, which is displayed through Aerobotics web and mobile apps, helps solve early problems with pests, diseases and stresses, which enables farmers to make informed decisions so they can increase their yield and produce a more balanced crop.
