Aerobotics has been named as one of thirteen startups to watch in 2019 at the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit.
The precision agriculture company will be featured as part of the summit’s TechHub when the event takes place in San Francisco at the end of March.
Commenting on the shortlisting, James Paterson, CEO at Aerobotics, said: “Having only recently launched our operations in the United States, it is exciting to receive recognition here as one of the top companies to watch at the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit.”
He added: “We are looking forward to showcasing the technology we have built for tree and vine farmers in the United States and 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.
In addition to health, the software also measures size, height and canopy volume, allowing farmers to make better decisions in the field in a bid to increase yield and produce a more balanced crop.
Aerobotics CFO and head of growth, Tom Willis, said: “We believe 2019 is the year of aerial imagery in the agriculture industry. We are doing everything we can to grow our presence and spread the word about how our technology is helping tree and vine farmers around the world.
“From conferences to content production to partnerships, we are making sure as many people as possible in the United States and around the world know about Aerobotics and how we are working hard to provide value to the industry.”
As part of its participation at the summit, Aerobotics will also be exhibiting and presenting to members of the agriculture and technology community.
Last year, CDP reported on Aerobotics milestone achievement of processing ten million trees.
