Flight and software demo.
IntelinAir’s ag-intelligence platform, AgMRI, is built around the premise that growers should spend less time finding issues and more time making strategic decisions. AgMRI allows growers to see which fields are ready to plant and alerts growers when problems arise (emergence issues, weeds, insect infestations, nutritional deficiencies, and disease pressure). IntelinAir will provide a hands-on demo of AgMRI so users can see how easy it is to get alerted to issues and make decisions during the season.
