Agrowing and Senseacre Labs partner for enhancing aerial remote sensing from NDVI to Deep Learning AI Precision Agriculture” solutions in India

Senseacre Labs, selected as one of the ten most promising drone technologies companies in India by SiliconIndia, is an experienced visual intelligence company. It has vast experience in the integration of Industrial grade UAVs and sensors across Agriculture, Environment Protection, Mining, Irrigation, Dams, and Construction Progress monitoring. Senseacre also developed stereo 3d visualization software for deep vision and analysis for all aerial imagery using DEM.

Agrowing’s sensor provides superior NDVI imagery. It acquires 10 narrow 24nm to 30nm wide bands of 8MP or 12MP per band, depending on the camera body used. The worldwide patented sensor is based on an out-of-the-box innovative design utilizing Sony’s A7Rxx modified camera bodies. Agrowing’s multi-lens, high quality optics, single mount, single sensor, and a single mechanical shutter design enjoys Sony’s A7Rxx Full-Frames BSI CMOS sensor, with its extreme dynamic range. The sensor overcomes typical multispectral acquisition issues of synchronization and chroma aberration, enabling leaf-level AI classification, as it is capable of acquiring aligned multispectral imagery from as close as 3m distance with resolution of sub 0.5mm per pixel.

The Collaboration between Senseacre Labs and Agrowing will enhance agriculture productivity by monitoring and quantification of soil, plant, water, and environment, using Agrowing’s patented “Remote and Close” Imagery Acquisition Methods in the field and Senseacre’s deep learning and artificial intelligence algorithms.

Senseacre specializes in crop health monitoring programs with deep applied research of classifying and identifying pests and weeds early to help farmers reduce their input costs, save the crop, and ensure better yield. Senseacre is focused on Agriculture and Climate resilient engagements in India, with the potential to expand globally. The company is working towards achieving greater insights with leaf-level close sensing and deep vision multispectral signatures algorithms.

Senseacre has already integrated Agrowing’s sensor with a hexacopter and the initial insights are very welcoming.

“Agrowing’s 10 band sensor is first of its kind in precision agriculture and we are happy to be the first to do such Integration and applied programs in India,” said Vinod K Samanthula, Co-Founder & Managing Partner of Senseacre Labs. “We are keenly looking at Rice, Cotton, Wheat, Millets, Sugarcane, Turmeric, Potato and other horticulture crops to detect pests and diseases early.”

Commenting on announcement, Ira Dvir, Co-Founder & CEO said: “We are happy to partner with Senseacre, the visual intelligence capabilities of which are exactly what is required for taking aerial remote-sensing from inaccurate NDVI to accurate leaf-level AI classification and identification.”

“This Indian-Israeli partnership offers exceptional value to the rapidly expanding precision agriculture market in India,” added Vinod Samanthula, Managing Partner, Senseacre Labs. “This technology alliance takes precision agriculture from high altitude remote sensing guesstimation, which calls for ‘go check’ verification in the field, to precise AI-analysis, which provides growers with reliable actionable data.”

Senseacre and Agrowing will bring AI enabled Precision Agriculture solutions to Farmers, Governments, FPOs, Agriculture research organization, State Agriculture Universities, IITs and other private and public entities in India.
