Granatus Ventures Makes Investment in Intelinair

Armenia-based Granatus Ventures has made an investment in Intelinair, a company founded by American businessman Al Eisaian and scientists Naira Hovakimyan and Ara Nefian.


Naira Hovakimyan told they will use the money to further develop Intelinair.


“We already have 11 scientists and engineers working in Armenia. With the additional investment, we will be able to hire and expand our team more and support the technological developments in Armenia, foster the exchange of ideas and collaborations across two countries [Armenia and USA],” said Naira Hovakimyan.


Granatus Ventures hasn’t disclosed the amount of investment.


“Granatus Ventures team is confident that along with attractive commercial opportunities, the investment will also facilitate fundamental progress of technological and business competence at the local level,” stated the company.


Intelinair makes high-resolution imagery via drones in order to create “MRI of farms”. The company is based in San Jose and has an office at the University of Illinois.


The Armenian office of the Intelinair team works on algorithms and software.

Yield Forecast

Understand where your corn yield is based on the current state of the crop. As the season unfolds, see how it is having an impact on your final yield.

Yield Loss

Powered by years of Nitrogen research at the University of Missouri, our corn Yield Loss analytic, powered by NVision Ag, gives insight into potential yield loss due to Nitrogen deficiency. Optional analytic for nitrogen management.

Variable Dry Down

variable dry down

Understand which fields and which areas of the field are drying down to help plan your harvest logistics.

Underperforming Area

low crop health

Not all areas of your fields perform the same and low NDVI doesn’t necessarily mean there is anything you can do to fix it this year. Underperforming Area alerts you to the fields and areas of the fields that are performing below their historical potential. This will allow you to quickly find those fields and areas and make adjustments to get them back on target and protect yield.

Nutrient Deficiency

nutrient deficiency

As the crop grows, it can tell us more of what is wrong with it. This analytic finds the fields and areas of the fields where there is a nutrient deficiency so that issues can be addressed before grain fill.

Disease Stress

disease risk

In conjunction with the Thermal Stress, Disease Stress alert takes into account weather information to more precisely indicate the type of stress impacting the crop.

Thermal Stress

thermal risk

Using our thermal imagery, AGMRI can detect elevated heat patterns of the crop that indicate crop stress.

Crop Health

Crop Health

Get a complete view of your farms and fields and identify where yield potential is ranked highest to the lowest.

Weed Map & Weed Escape

weed escape

Know what fields and areas of the fields have weeds. With machine integration or based on planting date, be alerted to what fields have weeds that may be impacting yield.

Historical Field Performance

AGMRI creates 5 performance zones in each field based on the historical average of those zones. This data is used to compare the current season to help understand where you are underperforming from the zone potential.

Low Emergence

Notification of what fields and areas of the field have poor emergence.

Stand Assessment

strand assessment

AGMRI detects the established rows and uses computer vision and machine learning to determine the best segment of row and compares the rest of the field to that segment to give you a relative map. If machine data is integrated, a stand population map is returned.
