Tarmac Demonstrations

 
DroneDeploy
Kyle Miller, Agricultural Industry Expert
Join Kyle Miller, the agriculture business development team lead at DroneDeploy, as he demos their cloud-based drone data platform that provides automated flight, real-time mapping, data processing and analysis. Kyle is a sixth-generation farmer who grew up on a corn and soybean farm in Iowa and has degrees in computer science and agribusiness. He has been researching remote sensing technology for more than 7 years and creating agriculture drone maps since 2013. He'll be demoing some of the latest real-time mapping features in DroneDeploy.
 
Sentera

Sentera will demonstrate the latest in remote sensing technology, showing how easy it is to scout a field, collect critical NDVI data and use it in the field, while using Sentera’s precision ag sensors and FieldAgent platform. Sentera is a leading designer and supplier of integrated remote sensing and IoT solutions to the agriculture industry. With a presence in over 700 North American retail locations, we make it easy for users to bring in-field data off the farm for further analysis. Our integrated FieldAgent™ Platform, analytics, and sensor products deliver fast, accurate information that improves outcomes for ag professionals and growers. 

 

Field Demonstrations

 
Praxidyn
Mixmate is a fully automated chemical blending and recordkeeping system with modular options for portable or stationary installations and to measure by weight and flow.  Simultaneously measure multiple products for fast mixing speeds, typically in 4 to 8 minutes for a large sprayer.  The Android app controls the system and synchronizes with our Intersect cloud service to backup data and provides access from the office.  Intersect and Mixmate can automate data processing to save time and reduce errors in the office and the field.
 
IntelinAir

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.

 

SoilOptix

SoilOptix® produces the most detailed high-definition soil mapping sensors that can accurately map over 25 different layers including macro and micro nutrients, pH, organic matter, texture, and plant available water. With a resolution of 335 points per acre and data that is easily implemented into variable rate applications, SoilOptix® gives growers a deeper understanding of the variability in nutrients and textural-based properties of their field's soil, which results in better optimization of input (fertilizer, seed, etc) placement for economic and environmental gain.
