ageagleThe Applied Technology division at Raven Industries is partnering with a leading provider of UAS, AgEagle Aerial Systems.  Raven will now serve as the exclusive distribution partner, combining their actionable data and AgEagle’s user-friendly UAS technology. The partnership will allow growers to create aerial maps to identify areas of stress, highlighting where nutrients or crop protection products should be applied.  The real-time data results in real profitability, and the images integrate with many agricultural software platforms.

“AgEagle’s innovative technology is at the forefront of the UAS market, and we couldn’t be more excited to play a role in their success,” said Brian Meyer, Division Vice President and General Manager of Raven Applied Technology. “Together, we will help make crop health data actionable and relevant, which in turn will help decrease inputs and increase yields for growers. That’s what Raven has always been about—helping the customer do more with less.”

“AgEagle is excited to distribute our fixed wing solution through Raven, one of the top precision agriculture companies in the world,” said Bret Chilcott, CEO of AgEagle Aerial Systems. “We believe this partnership is a tremendous validation of our team and our products. Raven and AgEagle have the same focus, mission and passion, and together, through the use of better actionable data for the growers, we will effect change in feeding the world.”

Raven and AgEagle will be at the Commodity Conference next month, or visit www.ravenprecision.com for more information.
