Another company that made a presence at the 2016 InfoAg Conference was Esri. Esri is a software company that allows growers to integrate high-resolution imagery, field observations, and real-time data feeds to help growers manage their land more efficiently with GIS technology.
Charlie Magruder, Agriculture Lead, Natural Resources for Esri, sat down with AgWired’s Kelly Marshall during this year’s conference to talk about how Esri’s technology is unique, and explained some of the unique benefits that technology is offering growers.
“What we allow an organization in agriculture to do is take and form tasks that they might want to do, whether it’s backing up database management or precision agriculture activities or tasks related to field management, we have the ability to offer that as a solution that is completely tailored to your needs and wants and is deployed in any way that you want,” said Magruder. “We have a set of tools that can be as easily deployed as downloading an app.”
