Cloud Agronomics offers a full suite of analytical capabilities to customers throughout the agricultural industry. Cloud Agronomics' hyperspectral analysis enables TerrAvion's current customers to go beyond NDVI to determine why their plants are stressed and what to do about it. Cloud Agronomics has developed NPK nutrient quantification and early disease detection analytics layers for corn and soybeans for the 2020 agricultural growing season. Furthermore, Cloud Agronomics and TerrAvion offer three types of services to meet the different analytical needs that customers have.
- Full Data Cube: For customers with in-house hyperspectral analysis capabilities, TerrAvion and Cloud Agronomics deliver complete hyperspectral data cubes along with 10 cm multispectral maps of fields.
- Bespoke Signature Development: For a defined analytical need, Cloud Agronomics develops and sells a proprietary signature for a pathology or circumstance (e.g., a specific plant disease) based on data captured by TerrAvion. This proprietary data is particularly of interest to those who have chemistry or intervention that targets a particular pathology but do not have in-house analytical data.
- Managed Platform Prototype (NPK recommendations): the Cloud Agronomics' platform provides comprehensive insights and can be easily delivered to any other agricultural management platform to broaden existing precision agronomy programs.
