PRECISE AND ACTIONABLE INSIGHTS

We provide cultivar specific and quantitative key metrics for growers, such as Crop Health and Water Stress indicators, amongst others. A fast Drone based inspection of your field with our proprietary sensing technology will collect the scientific data that will be elaborated through our unique set of agronomical models to deliver visual maps of your field with the quantitative metrics that you can easily interpret the same day of the inspection.

INSPECT FIELD EQUIPMENT

Horteye not only keeps an eye on your crop, but will also detect leaks in your irrigation  system or even holes in your protective nets. Our technology will save you hours of visual and manual inspection of you irrigation system by clearly identifying the position of leaks. That will save you water and sweat ! Similarly, the technology will spot holes on you protective nets and prevent the pests to invade your valuable crop

PREDICTIVE YIELD

In the long term, and after initial calibration, accumulating inspection data will enable us to, not only to assess the current state of health of your crop, but also predict the yield for the current season.

After collecting your data for more than 2 seasons, our unique models will provide insights on the expected yields for the current season and fine tune the prediction after each inspection.

Aerial Photography and Survey

We provide aerial photographs of farms and infrastructure with a survey-grade geometric accuracy.

Water Stress Mapping

We are offering a remote alternative to mapping water stress to help with tree-by-tree or unit-by-unit irrigation allocation and stress detection.

Crop Vigour and Nutrient Variability

We offer in-field remote sensing information that can assist with nutrient and vigour variability to fine-tune fertiliser application, crop management, and harvest activities.

Farm Asset Inspection

The remote inspection of assets is a fast and immediate way of checking operations and if they are functioning as expected.

Yield and Quality Prediction

With long term monitoring of crops using a combination of our specific services, we provide a variable yield and produce quality prediction.

Tailored Services

We also provide services that are tailored to your unique needs.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to be a leading provider of solutions for timely and actionable insights that lead to efficient management of resources based on aggregated data that gives a global view.

OUR VALUES

We value people, the planet, and feeding people responsibly.
