Intelinair and Indigo Named Ag Tech Start-Ups to Watch in 2018 by Agriculture.com
Champaign, IL (January 23, 2018) — Intelinair, an aerial imagery analytics company based in San Jose, CA and Champaign, IL, was named one of the 7 Ag Tech Start-Ups to Watch in 2018 this month by Agriculture.com.
Intelinair’s AgMRI® platform, the leading aerial analytics solution for agriculture, alerts farmers to emergence issues, early-season weeds, nutrient deficiencies, weather damage, water stress, disease outbreaks and insect infestations, giving users the ability to make data-driven decisions that impact this season and beyond.
“We’re excited to continue to provide valuable, actionable and profitable insights to growers into 2018,” said Al Eisaian, Co-founder and CEO of Intelinair. “The strength of farmer know-how combined with frequent and powerful high-resolution imagery analytics is the future of a sustainable agriculture.”
Among those named as ag tech start-ups to watch in 2018 is Indigo Ag, a company dedicated to harnessing nature to help farmers sustainably feed the plant. To date, Indigo Ag has raised over $300 million and is the top-funded ag tech start-up.
Since unveiling AgMRI® in 2017, Intelinair has quickly become the largest aerial monitoring and analytics company, rapidly growing from the 1.8 million acres monitored last year. Other significant advancements include updated user functionality through the John Deere Operations Center and superior resolution from 15 centimeters (6 inches) per pixel in 2017 to 10 centimeters (4 inches) per pixel for the 2018 season. The company is also expanding its service to the Brazilian market later this year.
Intelinair will be featured at the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit March 20-21 in San Francisco, California where Co-founder and CEO, Al Eisaian, is scheduled to speak. More information can be found at www.worldagritechusa.com.
