Hummingbird Technologies is an artificial intelligence business that provides advanced crop analysis to its customers by using proprietary machine learning algorithms applied to remote sensing captured imagery. The expertise allows the company to go beyond providing analytics and toward servicing the growers’ true needs. Hummingbird generates variable rate fertilizer applications to increase the uniformity of plant sizes across the field before peak nitrogen uptake. These applications are delivered through side-dressers and allow growers to reduce nitrogen usage by up to 70 percent while increasing yield by up to 10 percent. Hummingbird has been working with selected partners in California and Mexico over the past few months and welcomes the opportunity to trial its product with growers on the West Coast. Insero is introducing a new integration between the AgOtter spray controller and the Conservis farm management software that automates and simplifies the entire spray process, improving control and reducing costly mistakes. With this new partnership, a client can easily create a work order in the office, with Conservis, using their regulatory tools. That work order can then be sent via the cloud to their AgOtter to ensure that the application is being sprayed accordingly. With AgOtter’s full spray and flow control, the client can ensure that the application was sprayed by the regulatory standard set in the work order. Once the application is complete all data will then automatically be sent back to Conservis to debit inventory, analyze the data, compare efficiencies and more, all in one easy to use platform. KipTraq has experienced tremendous growth, adding more than 20 new customers this year alone. Much of that growth starts with recommendations from existing customers and has been split between growers, harvesters and processors (both large and small), showing the diversity of the platform. KipTraq's tools enable users to convert paper forms to a fully integrated mobile data collection solution in a matter of minutes. The web-based reporting tool adds another level of functionality, enabling easy-to-use analysis and automatic scheduled emailing of reports. KipTraq continues to innovate in food safety, environmental monitoring, field sampling, quality, operations, sanitation, inventory, integration with existing systems, and many other areas thanks to support and guidance from their agriculture customers.
