Visualize

Visualization is where we make the data come to life for anyone on & off-farm through relatable maps

Green Atlas Cartographer

The Green Atlas Cartographer is an innovative combination of hardware and software that allows flower and fruit counts to be quickly and accurately mapped over entire orchards. With high resolution AI assisted mapping, our customers know every block and every tree, to help manage the life cycle from flower to fruit.

20% Improved Labor Efficiencies 

SoilOptix Top Soil Mapping

Labor

Pruning

Quantify number of clusters distributed on trees, the size of fruit, density of the canopy and leaf-area to inform growers where labor should be focused or how much thinning should occur.

Nutrient Optimization

Establish relationship between soil variables including texture, pH, micro/macro nutrients VS. yield- size & count.

Harvest

Based on total fruit, size, and color we are able to show growers where to focus labor and how much fruit is expected for harvest.

Missing Trees & Pollinator Distribution

Preferably done in the off season we are able to use Green Atlas to identify pollinator distribution at a customizable range that meets the growers preference.

Bin Placement & Estimates

Based on fruit size and quantity we are able to predict how many bins are needed for a given block and where to place them based on fruit density.

Shade Cloth Distribution

Based on tree canopy density and height we are able to identify potential problem areas that are susceptible to sun burn and colorization flaws.

Our Focus

innov8.ag is partnered with Microsoft to enable growers to make informed on and off-farm management decisions based on machine learning and AI-based insights. Our solutions leverage the agronomist expertise of PhD researchers from land-grant universities and ag-centric colleges; pairing mutual data sources, big data capabilities and machine learning tools with grower expertise and experience.

Our primary focus is permanent crops, as labor availability & efficiency is a significant industry challenge, often representing 60% of growers' costs.  In 2020 we piloted a Smart Orchard project with the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission & Washington State University, where we've applied our data aggregation & data science capabilities to provide growers with insights focused on the bottom line.  As we head into 2021 growing season, we've been commissioned to expand to a second Smart Orchard site, while also introducing our base crop count imaging capabilities to orchard & vineyard growers.

In 2021 we announced our Food Resiliency project in Snohomish County.  This project leverages leading-edge private connectivity & edge computing, which powers IoT sensors collecting soil, weather, water, & imagery data; all focused on enabling growers to take actionable decisions that optimize inputs while obtaining increased yield quality & quantity.
