Drone Ag, the UK’s leading agri-drone technology company, and Agrii, the UK’s leading agronomy services provider, are pleased to announce a strategic investment by Agrii in Drone Ag. This investment marks an important milestone in the development and deployment of drone technology in agriculture, which has the potential to revolutionise the way farmers manage their crops.
As part of this investment, Agrii will provide funding to support Drone Ag’s research and development efforts, as well as the commercialisation of its technology. Drone Ag will also collaborate with Agrii to develop new solutions and services that meet the specific needs of Agrii’s customers. By leveraging Drone Ag’s drone technology and Agrii’s extensive agronomy expertise, the two companies aim to transform the way farmers approach crop management.
“We are excited to partner with Agrii to bring the benefits of drone technology to more farmers across the country,” said Jack Wrangham, CEO of Drone Ag. “Agrii’s deep understanding of agronomy combined with our expertise in drone technology will enable us to develop innovative solutions that meet the unique needs of farmers.”
Potential to increase yields and reduce costs
Ronan Hughes, managing director of Agrii, said: “We believe that drone technology has enormous potential to help farmers increase yields, reduce costs, and improve the sustainability of their operations. This investment in Drone Ag reflects our commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions that help our customers succeed.”
Drone Ag’s technology uses high-resolution cameras and advanced algorithms to capture detailed images of crops, which can be used to identify areas of stress or disease, track crop growth and development, and monitor the effectiveness of fertilisers and other inputs. By providing farmers with this valuable information, drone technology can help them make more informed decisions about how to manage their crops, resulting in higher yields and reduced costs.
With Agrii’s investment, Drone Ag is well-positioned to accelerate the development and deployment of its technology, helping to unlock the full potential of drone technology in agriculture. The two companies are committed to working together to deliver innovative solutions that help farmers improve their operations and increase their profitability.
