(20 February 2018 - Mavrx) Mavrx this week announced it is opening up its proprietary satellite-powered agricultural management platform to all members of the farm economy, empowering all agriculture stakeholders to bring cutting-edge technology to their fields at no cost.
Over four years, Mavrx has built a platform that enables farm managers to optimize operations through a bird’s eye look at yield, planting, and equipment application data that incorporates in-season and historical satellite information. Mavrx is now the largest aerial imagery and analytics provider in agriculture, monitoring over 14 million acres. The company provides yield enhancing services to 30 different major crops — including corn, soybeans, wheat, cotton, sugarcane, and potatoes — in farmland across the U.S., Canada, Brazil, South Africa, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, and Argentina.
“This is a momentous step forward in our journey toward creating a more secure and flexible agricultural economy,” said Mavrx CEO Max Bruner. “By removing barriers to entry, we can expand platform access to those who can benefit, while rapidly increasing our technological capabilities and coverage. Ultimately, we will be able to offer affordable yield-enhancing services to every acre of agriculture in the world.”
The following tools will now be available to all Mavrx users at no cost:
- Satellite imaging
- Daily satellite based crop health tracking
- Management zone creation and prescription writing integrated with John Deere, SST, EFC, and other industry leaders
- Mavrx Scout Mobile app (iOS and Android) for scouting, tissue and soil sampling – with reporting and lab integration
Those seeking more granular field information will still be able to purchase premium aerial imaging services through Mavrx, leveraging the world’s largest manned aircraft imagery network.
Mavrx provides field monitoring and farm stakeholder engagement services using a proprietary national imaging network, geospatial data science, and historic yield analysis to monitor crop production and help farms and all agriculture service providers optimize profits. The Mavrx platform supports agriculture service providers, farmers, insurance companies, and financial services touching over 100 million acres of U.S. and international farmland.
