LahakX, the spraying drone swarming and spot-spraying pioneer, announced the completion of its Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulatory requirements and, as a result—its readiness to start generating revenues based on its innovative spraying drone solution. Additional regulatory assets that the company achieved enable commercial spraying by swarms of drones in California. “LahakX has been working with the FAA for two years to complete the regulatory process. We are excited to begin spraying operations and appreciate the complexity and thoroughness of the FAA throughout the certification phase. The extremely limited number of companies approved by the FAA to perform agricultural drone operations uniquely positions LahakX to immediately begin serving the industry,” said Dave Woodland, Vice President of Operations at LahakX. iFoodDS is moving out of the WG Center for Innovation and Technology offices in Salinas to a new office in Monterey to better accommodate its growing customer base. iFoodDS continues to enhance its comprehensive food supply chain platform for food safety, traceability, and quality management. iFoodDS announces the release of a new Food Safety enhancement supporting Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP).

With an interface that is used by all farm personnel and accessible by any smartphone, tablet, or computer, farms can see and control what is happening on their farm in real time.

Notifications are easily configured to inform growers, irrigators or agronomists about the events on the farm that they want to know about.

Using experience from boots on the ground, combined with ongoing research with NASA, USDA and collaborations with grower-shipper associations, GeoVisual specialists focus on what the biggest problems or opportunities a company faces.
