BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Agribotix LLC of Boulder, Colorado and Eco BCG have announced a strategic joint venture, called Agribotix-Latin America. Agribotix-Latin America will bring agricultural intelligence solutions, leveraging drone-enabled technology to the region. The company's headquarters are in Panama City, Panama, with additional offices in Mexico City and Santiago, Chile. Regional sales, training and customer service will be provided by Agribotix-Latin America and its authorized dealers.
The joint venture enables rapid, efficient expansion of reach for both companies, whose expertise and relationships are complementary. Latin America represents a large market, with substantial acreage dedicated to agriculture. Agribotix is an emerging leader in agricultural intelligence using agriculture-specific drone-enabled technologies, while Eco BCG provides clean technologies for business operations, including agricultural production.
Growers, NGOs, agronomists and authorized dealers can use drones to collect aerial field data, which is then uploaded to Agribotix-Latin America's cloud platform (www.latam.agribotix.com). Agribotix specialists then return high-resolution images and actionable reports that can be used to optimize inputs and to identify issues, enabling increased crop yields and profits.
"We're very excited about our partnership with Eco BCG," said Agribotix CEO, Lou Faust. "It rapidly extends our platform in one of the world's critical agricultural regions. Just a few weeks into our launch, the joint venture has already signed nearly a dozen customers. It's indicative of how ag intelligence is being embraced globally, and Agribotix is playing a emerging leadership role in that growth. We have a proven ability to deliver data that matters, and we're proud that Eco BCG made the decision to partner with us in Latin America."
Agribotix-Latin America has two offerings: a turnkey, integrated drone data collection and analysis solution, as well as the cloud-based, FarmLens™ data processing solution for customers that already have their own drone. Localized sales, service and training will be provided by the company and through its authorized dealers.
Founded in Boulder, Colorado, in 2013, Agribotix LLC delivers agricultural intelligence to increase yields and profits using drone-enabled technologies. All Agribotix solutions include Farm Lens™, the leading cloud-based data analysis and reporting solution for people using drones in agriculture. Outputs include prescription maps for in-season fertilization, weed reports for geolocating resistant patches and estimating coverage, and specialized reporting. The FarmLens solution is bundled with the Enduro turnkey ag drone system, which includes a long-range agricultural quadcopter. For more information, visit www.agribotix.com or call (720) 295-3625.
