Agrology to integrate Wyld Network’s satellite-based IoT connectivity into its predictive agriculture platform for global, 24/7 data collection
15 February 2022: Wyld Networks and Agrology have announced a partnership to integrate Wyld Connect into Agrology’s ground truth predictive agriculture platform. Wyld Connect is a low-cost, IoT global connectivity network based on low-orbit satellite systems. The technology ensures that Agrology ground truth sensors will continue to gather data, from even the most remote locations and can deliver that data quickly to Agrology customers, regardless of connectivity status.
“We are delighted to be working together with Agrology in the agtech sector,” said Alastair Williamson, CEO of Wyld Networks. “Only 15% of the world’s surface has access to wireless connectivity and agriculture traditionally has suffered from very poor or no wireless coverage. Agrology provides farmers with affordable, actionable data and machine learning predictions that help them plan and mitigate threats by leveraging IoT technology.”
Agrology’s predictive agriculture platform combines proprietary, affordable sensor arrays with machine learning, to provide actionable insights and trends via a mobile app. Agrology is the first company to offer one agriculture system to mitigate, predict and address a variety of issues including smoke taint, irrigation and climate change. The streamlined system of sensors, machine learning technology, data processing and data delivery, makes it easy for farmers to micro-track their crops, receive data and make decisions.
“IoT for agriculture presents a number of challenges, with connectivity being one of the most arduous,” said Adam Koeppel, CEO and Co-founder of Agrology. “By integrating Wyld Connect into the Agrology platform we can ensure that farmers will always have the real time data they need to make important decisions.” “We will continue to put together agreements ahead of the commercial launch with end-users, system integrators, sensor manufacturers in agriculture, energy, utilities, transportation and logistics, as well as data analytics platform providers, to ensure we create a broad eco-system to capture a greater customer base,” added said Williamson of Wyld Networks.
