STILLWATER, OK --(Marketwired - February 09, 2016) - Imagery and geographic information systems (GIS) resource data is an important factor in the improvement of crop health. Sentera announces it has partnered with SST Software and its agX Platform. Being agX compatible allows Sentera to streamline data processing and seamlessly integrate imagery services to help improve agricultural resource management.
Sentera continually looks for ways to help customers increase efficiencies through robust, innovative remote sensing and software solutions. In one year, Sentera's equipment collected 16 million images, covered 15 million acres and gathered 175 terabytes of data from 8,000 flights. By enhancing its system to become agX compatible, Sentera's AgVault software can easily share and export imagery data.
"We are proud to announce our compatibility with agX which allows existing and future customers to seamlessly integrate Sentera's AgVault Software, sensors, and drones into their growing operations," said Kris Poulson, vice president of agriculture for Sentera. "Our AgVault Software is beneficial to farmers because they can access drone, satellite, and manned-aircraft imagery without an internet connection, at the field's edge, and make critical input decisions using real-time data."
Remote sensing in crop production can help boost yields and provide environmental sustainability. This methodology uses imagery to assist in scouting, identifying nitrogen deficiencies and detecting faulty application equipment within fertilizer and irrigation systems. Sentera's high performance near-infrared (NIR) plus normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) cameras have sensors that deliver real-time insights into how plants are developing. Afterward, AgVault catalogs the images by field and year and tiles them into complete maps to generate NDVI data. The data can then be shared and synced among everyone within a company.
