Jacobs has partnered with IntelinAir, a 2019 EnterpriseWorks graduate, to accelerate the digital transformation of the farming industry. The new Jacobs-IntelinAir team will work together to ultimately provide farmers a complete, uninterrupted view of every acre for all stages of the growing season. Jacobs intends to provide multispectral sensor systems and aerial services, and IntelinAir will use their AI, machine learning-powered analytics platform AgMRI™.
According to Jacobs’ news release on April 16, 2020, image capabilities and analytics will combine to help agronomists and farmers see field-related issues without driving or walking in their fields. AgMRI is essential to review fields and consider remediation options without being physically there.
“The world-class high-precision remote sensing technology from Jacobs combined with the most experienced team in the business enabled and empowered our team to push the limits of our own analytics technology to deliver truly measurable, reliable, and actionable smart alerts to our agriculture industry customers,” shared IntelinAir Co-founder and CEO Al Eisaian.
IntelinAir’s AgMRI gathers high resolution aerial images, temperature readings, humidity measurements, rainfall, soil samples, terrain type, equipment utilized, planting rates, applications, and more in order to determine patterns that agronomists and farmers can use in their decision-making. On March 10, IntelinAir announced that it joined the NVDIA Inception program as a community member, allowing the startup to collaborate with industry-leading experts and other AI-driven startups.
IntelinAir is a full-season and full-spectrum crop intelligence company focused on agriculture that delivers actionable intelligence to help farmers make data-driven decisions to improve operational efficiency, yields, and ultimately their profitability.
