Ceres Imaging Expands Its Agriculture Data Analytics Solutions to Europe

The data analytics company has announced new expansion in Portugal and Spain, continuing its successful global growth.

Ceres Imaging, the data analytics company that builds precision agriculture solutions to reduce risk and improve sustainability outcomes, is announcing its expansion into Portugal and Spain.

Ceres got its start over a decade ago in California's silicon valley area, and today helps many of the world's largest agriculture land holders detect underperforming assets and identify opportunities for the highest ROI in their portfolios. With more than 11 billion individual plant-level measurements captured across 22 million acres and more than 40 crop types—Ceres can model yield impacts and investment ROI in ways other companies can't.

As part of its launch Ceres has built a local customer support team and has established a network of pilots for its high resolution imagery that are flying throughout the major growing areas.

"We are encouraged by our reception so far in the region. We are looking forward to leveraging our expertise, based on our experiences in North America, Australia, and Latin America, to help farming enterprises protect their yields and manage their scarce natural resources," said Ramsey Masri, CEO of Ceres Imaging.

Ceres is used by global farming enterprises to protect yield and improve sustainability outcomes, including water efficiency and nutrient use efficiency. With Ceres managers can:

Identify issues impacting yield and calculate the ROI of capital improvements in ways that other companies can't.
Report on key farm metrics at a plant, farm, or portfolio level—or create custom reporting zones to match the way you work.
Be notified of crop health issues 2-3 weeks before they are visible to the human eye—and before they impact yield.
Benefit from the most accurate aerial imagery available for agriculture, including chlorophyll, color infrared, absolute and relative NDVI, thermal, and water stress data.
Ceres' holistic view combines high-resolution imagery, integrations with IoT field sensors, and satellite-based analytics to forecast yield risk and help users take action. Ceres is unique among data analytics companies in offering high resolution thermal imagery and plant-level insights with a delivery turnaround time of 48 hours or less. While other data companies show pixels of a whole field, often mixing soil and ground cover with crop information, Ceres uses convolutional neural networks to measure just the crop and provide quantifiable insights on a per plant basis. With quantified feedback on what's working, it's easier to prioritize resources and respond quickly to changing conditions in the field.

About Ceres Imaging
At Ceres Imaging, we build AI-driven solutions that protect yield and advance climate resiliency. We believe the future of agriculture depends on building the right tools to help farmers, insurers, lenders and sustainability partners make the most of their limited resources. By combining in field data with advanced analytics and proprietary high-resolution imagery, we're building more profitable and more sustainable agriculture operations.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
