Taranis’ patented scouting technology captures aerial imagery at sub-millimetre resolution to detect field ailments such as weeds, insects, disease and fertiliser deficiencies
Crop protection firm Adama has entered into a global partnership with Taranis for the development of an end-to-end precision agriculture solution for farmers.
The partnership will develop a full-service package solution for the optimisation of farming practices and reduction of costs through precision agriculture.
Adama said that its new end-to-end solution is a significant milestone in realising its vision for bringing effective solutions that meet farmers’ most pressing requirements.
Adama resources and strategy senior vice-president Dani Harari said: “We are happy to expand our partnership with Taranis to provide growers and ag professionals with a solution that enables the effective and efficient use of agricultural inputs, an important part of every farmer’s success.”

Taranis applies its patented scouting technology to capture aerial imagery at sub-millimetre resolution to detect field ailments such as weeds, insects, disease, as well as fertiliser deficiencies or growth conditions such as emergence and row coverage.
Later, the firm will use artificial intelligence-driven technologies to analyse the images and offer accurate actionable insights from the field directly to the farmer.
Through combining deep-learning technology with high-speed UAVs and manned aircraft, Taranis is already supporting farmers to predict and prevent threats to more than 20 million acres across the globe on a granular level.
Taranis CEO and co-founder Ofir Schlam said: “By partnering with ADAMA, we will be able to expand our offerings, supplying farmers across the world with the most robust, end-to-end crop monitoring solutions.”
Taranis is a major precision agriculture intelligence platform, which uses an advanced computer vision, data science and deep learning algorithms for the efficient monitoring of fields.
The system helps farmers to make informed decisions by detecting early symptoms of weeds, uneven emergence, nutrient deficiencies, disease or insect infestations, water damage and equipment problems.
With more than 7,000 employees in over 100 countries, Adama provides products and services to control weeds, insects and disease and improve yields.
