PANAMA CITY, PANAMA - (EINPresswire via NewMediaWire) - August 6, 2015 - Agribotix-U.S. of Boulder, Colorado and Eco BCG of Woodbury, Minnesota today announce their Joint Venture in launching Agribotix-Latin America, offering state-of-the art unmanned drone flights and cloud-based data and imaging analytics for the agricultural market. Agribotix-Latin America’s headquarters are in Panama City, Panama with additional offices in Mexico City and Santiago, Chile. Drone sales, flight training and services and technical support will be offered throughout Latin America by both authorized dealers and direct personnel.
Landowners and agriculture producers across the world are using unmanned drone flights above their fields to provide them precise information and imaging to more rapidly and efficiently optimize their crop yields. The ability to use “eyes in the sky” helps owners save valuable time and costs to determine at any given time the appropriate use of water, fertilizer and other inputs, manpower and farm equipment at any specific location. The goal of drone technology is to provide faster, more actionable intelligence that can reduce costs and risks while improving yields and income. Agribotix-Latin America will offer two types of drones with their data services as well as offer the same analytical services for those who already own and operate their own drones.
“Using this new technologies we can deliver not only the best optimization of your resources, but also help you reduce the environmental impact they cause. This is the new era of the precision agriculture” Dr. Sergio Castillo from Agribotix LatAm noted.
Landowners, crop operators, agronomists and authorized dealers will be able to directly download their drone camera images directly through the Agribotix-Latin America web site (http://latam.agribotix.com/) in order for Agribotix specialists to create high resolution images and intelligence in a matter of hours for analysis and use back in the field.
Two different packages of images and data analytics will be offered - Basic and Professional. Professional will be more valuable for those landowners using variable rate application or seeding methods whereby drone data can be downloaded into field tractors for specific input applications. Basic package includes: geo -referenced map of crop health and high resolution RGB Orthomosaic map . Professional package includes: Basic Package and vector map geo referenced management zones being used with other program like SMS or SST and others for making a variable applications map used tractors
