Deveron Brings Fixed Wing Imagery Offering to Ontario
Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - January 26, 2021) - Deveron Corp. (TSXV: FARM) ("Deveron" or the "Company"), a leading agriculture digital services and insights provider in North America, is proud to announce the launch of a fixed wing imagery pilot program for the 2021 season. The program is available in south western Ontario, an agriculture market of 8 million acres of farmland. The key focus of the pilot program is to provide growers with a cost effective means to make crop protection decisions and help increase yield. High resolution data can also be used to improve field scouting, tissue and soil sampling, and nitrogen management.
Deveron has already secured contracts to execute 50% of the acres planned for the pilot in collaboration with a leading Ontario agriculture retailer. Fixed wing aerial imagery offers a new cost effective option to our existing drone imagery product currently offered throughout the North American market. The program includes 3 flights throughout the grow season, analysis, and recommendation of where best to apply crop protection and a return-on-investment analysis.
"This pilot project is meant to allow agricultural producers to evaluate the value proposition offered by calibrated, high resolution imagery to their business models," said Aaron Breimer, Deveron's Data Insights Group Lead.
"We continue to see ourselves as a pioneer in digital agriculture. Our goal is to provide our customers with the best end-to-end solutions to increase yields and reduce costs," said David MacMillan, Deveron's President and CEO. "This is another example of how our data collection network can help improve the unit economics on the farm and another step towards using data in farming decisions."
