Global agricultural companies operate hundreds of research stations across the world. Research scientists run experiments at each station to develop products that maximize yields for many of the world’s most important crops.
Monitoring and measuring plant growth—especially on a plot-level—is critical for agricultural companies seeking to maximize their investment in research and development of new seed technology. Traditionally, to measure, inspect, monitor and analyze crop-specific data, researchers or third-party contractors count and measure plants.
But this approach presents four key challenges:
