Precision Agriculture

Aker’s unique aerial and below the canopy diagnostics helps our customers make timely, valuable treatment decisions in order to protect yield. Our precision agriculture technology reduces the time and cost of crop scouting and analytics.

In addition to seamlessly importing field information from farmer information management systems (FIMS), our national network of drone pilots and agronomists are prepared to gather and analyze field data throughout the growing season on demand — anywhere.
