There is this notion of closing the loop around agriculture. Bringing together sensing and data about crop health, using insights from that data to make decisions, and then going out and applying inputs to the field. This process is no different than the way a farmer would approach agriculture; we’re finding new sources of relevant data and researching ways to gather that information much more quickly, and how to use that additional insight in the decision making process. This research is exciting because it’s a win-win-win scenario, lowering costs for farmers, increasing field productivity, and greatly reducing the impact on the environment.
