Agremo is a Serbian startup, which has been developing a software platform for agricultural producers, growers and anyone who deals with health of land an crops since 2015. It uses drones to generate aerial images which are then analyzed and by using artificial intelligence, machine learning and computer vision it creates a “brain” that helps better management of crops.
CEO at Agremo, Milan Dobrota thinks that agriculture is the least digitized industry and that one of the reasons for that is that accurate and detailed data on crop condition is hard to collect, which is relevant not only for efficiently managing the current season but planning future seasons as well.
The platform development started with the help of Fractals grant from EU Commission funds.
– Aside from myself, Nebojsa Pavicic and Rastko Carapic had been there from the start as well as the large number of talented young engineers and experts considering the whole enterprise started as a project within Logit company. Now Agremo is a completely independent company and employs 25 very talented and dedicated experts from software engineering, artificial intelligence, machine learning, agronomy, advertising and sales, integrated solutions and so on, Dobrota said.
Agremo connected with DroneDeploy in 2016, as pioneers of their App Market and thus opened a new trade channel in the USA, They launched an independent platform in 2017 and since then the number of their users is constantly growing.
– We count more than 1,700 users in over 100 countries worldwide. So far we have analyzed more than 100 crop types in 10,000 analyses. Most users come from USA, then form Latin America, Europe and from the rest of the world to lesser extent, said Dobrota.
The platform is based on a cloud service. It analyzes the data extracted from images recorded with drones with the aim to improve agricultural processes. With the help of analyses that include counting plants and plant health protection, growers. agricultural consultants, drone operators and insurance companies are able to plan, track and analyze agricultural activate and see what happens on their farms during vegetation season.
Agremo analyses are activated by adding a map collected from unmanned aircrafts to Agremo web application or to Agremo app on DroneDeploy and what the user gets in return are easily accessible data.
