Agribotix LLC and farming-equipment supplier Hawkins Manufacturing Inc. have partnered to make turnkey, drone-enabled agricultural intelligence technologies and services widely available across the U.S.
A package combines Agribotix’s FarmLens cloudbased data platform with the purpose-built Enduro quadcopter. Hawkins will offer the solution to its 567 dealers in 33 states; Agribotix, headquartered in Boulder, Colo., will provide the platform, service and support.
This type of value-added bundle is going to characterize almost every vertical market in a few years. All this is missing is an easy-to-buy insurance policy tailored to the risks of the vertical.
