TerrAvion and Servi-Tech announce a new partnership to provide aerial imaging, NDVI, and thermal imaging services via the Servi-Tech network of independent crop consultants and agronomic service providers.
TerrAvion is the largest volume provider of aerial imagery to agriculture. Every week, the company takes hundreds of low-altitude flights to capture bird’s-eye views of farms, and then uploads the images to the cloud within hours. Using those images, farmers can plan scouting, management activities and in-season interventions. Read more about TerrAvion’s NDVI technology and product here.
Servi-Tech, Inc. provides agronomic services to over 1,900 farmers across seven states, and its crop consulting division has over 1.1 million acres under contract.
Servi-Tech’s laboratories analyze soil, water, feed and fertilizers and consult with growers on issues around soil fertility, disease and insect control, irrigation and data management. Servi-Tech Expanded Premium Services (STEPS) is a wholly-owned subsidiary that develops and offers a variety of technology solutions to agronomists and retail entities across the country.
“TerrAvion’s flights cover larger areas in a much more reliable and cost-effective way than drones or satellites ever could,” said Greg Ruehle, President & CEO for Servi-Tech, Inc, in a press release. “We are excited to team up with TerrAvion to give our customers the information they need through aerial imagery to make more informed decisions around irrigation, soil quality and the health of their plants so they can improve their yield each season.”
“Servi-Tech is a leader in crop consulting and understands how vital imagery and timely data is to growers to improving crop yield,” said Robert Morris, CEO of TerrAvion, in a press release. “We are excited to work with their team and help their customers leverage all types of aerial images to help identify problems before they become serious issues that can impact their bottom line.”
With this announcement TerrAvion and Servi-Tech confirm they are exploring pathways to offer imagery solutions to a broader client base.
