TEL AVIV, Israel — Taranis, a high-resolution aerial surveillance imagery provider based in Israel, announced a new global platform partnership agreement with The Climate Corp., a subsidiary of Bayer. The agreement will provide mutual farmer customers in the U.S., Brazil and Argentina, two-way data connectivity between The Climate Corp.’s Climate FieldView platform and Taranis.
Through this partnership, high-resolution aerial imagery data and field-level insights will flow into a farmer’s FieldView account at their request to assist the farmer in mitigating risk of crop yield loss due to insects, crop disease, weeds and nutrient deficiencies.
The integration of the FieldView platform’s field-level insights and Taranis’ patented aerial imagery technology will provide mutual farmer customers with a vast, interconnected set of tools, services and agronomic data.
Taranis focuses on high-volume commodity crops, such as corn, soybeans, cotton, potatoes and sugarcane, which account for 70% of global crop volumes. The company recently announced the closing of a $20M Series B funding round to expand its global footprint, and currently services a wide-range of farmers, empowering them to address issues in real-time and increase productivity.
