High-resolution imagery incorporated into Lindsay's FieldNET irrigation management tool offers increased visibility of crop and field conditions
Lindsay Corporation (NYSE: LNN), a leading global manufacturer and distributor of irrigation and infrastructure equipment and technology, today announced a strategic partnership with Ceres Imaging, an Oakland, Calif., provider of high-resolution imagery analytics with support for precision agriculture.
The Ceres Imaging technology will populate high-resolution images in Lindsay's industry-leading FieldNET® platform, which enhances growers' ability to remotely monitor, control, analyze and apply irrigation recommendations. The addition of Ceres' imagery and access to its analytics platform will allow growers to monitor and adjust operations based on key indicators of crop performance such as emergence, canopy density, soil composition, water stress and nitrogen content. These indicators will provide valuable insights into crop health in alignment with Lindsay's smart pivot innovation roadmap and enhance the ability of growers to choose solutions uniquely tailored to their needs.
The data connection between the FieldNET and Ceres Imaging platforms will be two-way, with Ceres imagery provided and shown in the FieldNET platform. In-depth analytics and recommendations, powered by FieldNET data, will also be accessible within the Ceres Imaging platform. Sharing encrypted data with permission of the grower allows the two platforms to work more efficiently and provide custom recommendations for optimal yield while supporting growers' sustainable farming practices.
"Lindsay is committed to providing the latest technology to growers to help scale their organization and maximize yields," said Gustavo Oberto, President of Global Irrigation at Lindsay. "The Ceres Imaging offering is a natural addition to the toolkit we provide growers. We are excited about the work Ceres Imaging is doing with high-resolution thermal imaging and analytics today, especially as it pertains to precision irrigation, and the value this partnership will continue to create for our mutual customers. We know that no two fields, no two operations, no two crops are the same, so we are excited to provide our customers this choice among a suite of imaging options compatible with current and future irrigation innovations"
Ashwin Madgavkar, founder of Ceres Imaging, agreed. "Our passion for agriculture and helping growers maximize their potential is at the root of what we do at Ceres. We see that same passion and drive to create innovative solutions and analytics in Lindsay's product lineup. We're excited to partner with them and look forward to continued innovation."
