Agriculture Intelligence, a precision agriculture-science company combining automation, remote sensing and artificial intelligence to provide cloud-based, precision data for specialty crops, has announced a multi-year partnership with NAU Country for its award-winning AI platform Agroview.
NAU Country is America's original Multi-Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI) company and one of the largest federal crop insurance providers in the United States, specializing in MPCI, Crop-Hail, and Named Peril insurance products. The company is part of QBE Insurance Group Limited, a global insurance leader focused on helping solve unique customer risks worldwide.
"We are excited to be selected by NAU Country," said CEO of Agriculture Intelligence and Product Officer for Agroview Matthew Donovan. "We believe sampling methods are a thing of the past. Drone technology must be complimented by smart technology and Agroview drives business value. The guessing game is over."
Agroview employs aerial footage of crops captured by drones and its AI software to determine tree count, gaps, and precise measurements of each tree in the entire grove.
"At NAU Country, we have high standards for our technology partners. We have heavily invested in drone technology, but knew that with the right partner we could do even more – we could use flight imagery and machine learning to help automate tree counts." said Chief Marketing and Technology Officer Michael Deal at NAU Country. "We expect proven, accurate, and consistent results. In Agroview, we found all three of those qualities. We also see that the team behind Agroview is creating the next wave of proven technology that our industry needs."
"We understand that consistent and accurate results are at the core of what any insurer must have. We believe this partnership proves our results and we are excited to be able to add value to a well-established insurer such as NAU Country," said Donovan.
