Blue River Expands See & Spray Testing Before Commercial Launch

Starting in Texas and spanning to Georgia and through the Mississippi Delta, Blue River will partner with John Deere dealers to identify local farmers as test cooperators for in-field demos in 2018.

As Jeremy Hawkins with Blue River Technology explains, the company’s See & Spray technology uses artificial intelligence to identify and spray individual plants in just milliseconds.

“It’s a new era in agriculture. We’ve had advances in the mechanical, chemical and trait fields, and now, intelligent machines are here,” Hawkins says. 

Smart machines, such as See & Spray, have three core elements: sense and decide, act, and verify and learn.

In the “sense and decide” phase, Blue River’s artificial intelligence identifies subtle differences between crops and weeds. During the “act” phase, only weeds are sprayed. The platform leads to a 90% reduction in herbicide use. “Verify and learn” describes the application of machine learning so that the application of the technology becomes more and more accurate.

“Everyone thinks the greatest benefit to this technology is reducing herbicide use,” Hawkins says. “But if you think about it from a production standpoint, growers have a bucket of money they can spend on a crop. An unproportional amount is going toward weed control. So if using Blue River Technology means a farmer is not spending as much on herbicides and not as much is going to weed control, they have funds available for plant enhancement products—the things that help yield and crop quality.”

In addition to the application reduction, it also minimizes off-target drift. The volume per acre is reduced, and larger droplet sizes can be used. See & Spray can help prevent herbicide resistance with rotating herbicide modes of action, applying appropriate rates for maximum efficacy and mapping weeds by species and size.

In September 2017, John Deere announced it will invest $305 million to fully acquire Blue River Technology, which is based in Sunnyvale, Calif. The companies have been in discussion about their business relationship since October 2016.

In 2018, the company will expand its testing. As Hawkins explains, the previous prototype was an eight-row machine with a maximum speed of 4 mph. This year, the Series 1 test machines will be 12-row machines and have an operating speed of 6 mph.

Starting in Texas and spanning to Georgia and through the Mississippi Delta, Blue River will partner with John Deere dealers to identify local farmers as test cooperators for in-field demos.

“We’re are going to try to be in 80 to 100 fields and be in front of up to 200 growers,” Hawkins says.

The initial focus will be in cotton, and then, it will transition to include soybeans. Future tests will expand to peanuts, potatoes and corn.

Although a commercial launch hasn’t been announced, Hawkins says the Blue River team is seeking feedback and interest from farmers and ag service providers.

The talk NFL jersesys shop during Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson's pro day revolved around the Heisman winner's supposed inaccessibility to teams trying to arrange meetings. At least one club had no trouble sitting down with Jackson on Thursday.
The Los Angeles Chargers were one of 32 teams in attendance at the Louisville pro day Thursday and reportedly spent a little more time with Jackson than the others. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported that Bolts offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt met with Jackson after his proShop NFL Jerseys By Team day.
Garafolo added for context that Chargers coach Anthony Lynn was effusive in his praise of Jackson at the combine, signifying that L.A. has real interest in the quarterback. Philip Rivers is 36 years old and has two years left on his contract. Behind him on the Chargers depth chart are longtime backup Kellen Clemens and third-year QB Cardale Jones, for whom L.A. traded ahead of last season. L.A. also met with former Jets quarterback Geno Smith this week.
Jackson is slated to be picked in the first roundShop NFL Hats, potentially within the top half of the first day. The Chargers own the 17th overall pick, but also have needs at tackle and inside linebacker.
Jackson has already had a private workout with the Houston Texans, but according to NFL Network draft tsar Mike Mayock, other teams have had a hard time getting in contact with Jackson to set up future meetings.
"I've had several teams tell me they're having trouble Shop NFL T-Shirtsjust getting to set up appointments to meet with him," Mayock said Thursday during Path to the Draft's coverage of the UL pro day. "Not just work out, but appointments to meet with him, to put him up on the board, to work him out, to have dinner with him. And remember, and again I'm not taking a shot here at anybody, his mom is representing him, his mom has obviously his best interest at heart, but you're doing the kid a disservice if NFL coaches and general managers are calling and you can't even get an appointment set up."
In light of Mayock's statement and the Chargers' increased interest in Jackson, perhaps teams will make more of an effort in the coming month to get a closer look at the polarizing prospectShop NFL Hoodie.
