Intelinair, NVision Ag Announce Collaboration Agreement to Help Corn Growers Manage Nitrogen

INDIANAPOLIS – May 25, 2023Intelinair today announced that it has entered into a collaboration agreement with NVision Ag, a data analytics company focused on nitrogen management. Under the terms of the agreement, Intelinair will license NVision Ag’s nitrogen management technology and make it available on its digital platform, AGMRI®.

Most of the middle of this field was light in color, signaling nitrogen deficiency. This could not be seen standing at the edge of the field. The lighter the plants, the more additional nitrogen they need to reach their full potential.

The technology will help corn growers decide whether they need more nitrogen fertilizer by showing specific degrees of nitrogen loss within a field. From the aerial images yield-loss maps, total yield-loss estimates, and N-rate control files are generated. A grower can tell which areas within a field need nitrogen applied and which do not.

“By combining our imagery and data analytics with NVision Ag’s proprietary nitrogen management technology, we will expand our in-season offering in nitrogen management in the 2023 crop season,” said Tim Hassinger, CEO and President, of Intelinair. “Through this collaboration, our common goal is to provide timely information on where in a field nitrogen is most needed for the corn crop.”

The agreement is further evidence of Intelinair’s commitment to providing real-time actionable insights to ag retailers and growers to support data-driven decisions.

Peter Scharf, President of NVision Ag, says, “Intelinair is a perfect company for us to work with. They’re out there every day looking at what is really going on in farm fields. And one of the things that shows up in their images is the nitrogen status of the crop. With Intelinair’s imagery and our algorithms, we can support farmers in making the right decisions with nitrogen, whether that’s fine-tuning planned in-season nitrogen, or making the right decision when rain may have caused nitrogen loss. When nitrogen is needed, we can deliver prescriptions at scale through AGMRI to put the nitrogen in exactly the right place and in the right amounts.”

Scharf has studied nitrogen for more than 30 years and is the author of “Managing Nitrogen in Crop Production,” published by the American Society of Agronomy.

Other terms of the deal were not disclosed.

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

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

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.
