The technology sector still reigns supreme in reaping the benefits of artificial intelligence and machine learning. However, advancements in AI and ML have begun to revolutionize the farming and agriculture industry. John Deere is an early adopter and believer in this technology and has partnered with Alteia to connect their machine connectivity platform, MyJohnDeere, directly to the drone for enhanced agricultural practices.
With Alteia, farmers can experience seamless connectivity, “from the drone to the tractor,” utilizing automated visual analysis of crops to identify weeds and create variable spraying maps, generating significant environmental benefits, as it results in a more accurate spraying methodology.
