AGERPoint has developed a series of industry-leading technologies that are redefining data acquisition, analysis, and translation for growers, giving growers access to unprecedented levels of mission critical data for managing their assets in a competitive environment.
AGERpoint provides information management solutions to growers of tree and vine based crops.
Our system also allows us to take a wide variety of measurements at the same time. With a single pass, AGERpoint can take comprehensive measurements of a tree’s size in three dimensions, count the fruit or blossoms on its branches, perform a spectral analysis of its leaves to ascertain its health, determine cultivar, and map it to precise GPS co-ordinates, providing a comprehensive inventory of a farmer’s assets in the field.
AGERpoint is also actively pursuing new technological advances in the collection and distribution of agricultural data. In the near term, our software platform will allow our clients to access all of their data from the field. A GPS enabled phone or tablet will be able to automatically pull up information on any tree or vine on their farm, either chosen from a detailed, custom map of the property, or based on a tree or vines proximity to the viewing device. Furthermore, while UAV (drone) technology cannot yet be used due to regulation and limits of the power available to power sensors, preliminary work is being done to make sure that such advances can be put into the field as soon as they are legal and practical. A UAV-based platform is expected to be able to measure 1,500 acres in a day, a five-fold increase over land-based scanning. Our data infrastructure has been designed to readily accommodate advances such as this well into the future.
Currently, AGERpoint has developed partnerships with Ag Leader, a front runner and driving force behind precision agriculture for over twenty years, and Durand Wayland, an 80-year-old firm, and leader in the design and manufacturing of spraying systems. We are also in the process of formalizing relationships with three other firms, which include established names in scanning technology and agricultural equipment. These partners will provide AGERpoint with technological assistance, as well as help us to develop our dealer network by building upon existing partner dealer networks.
Assuming a seven-year re-scanning cycle, data hosting, and additional subscription services, the recurring, the total addressable market would represent an additional $495 million annually based on the product lines currently available and/or scheduled for deployment in the next three years.
