Bonduelle North America has contracted Canadian drone data firm Deveron to supply the company with agricultural drones.
The French canned-vegetable firm will use the technology to gather crop data, which will improve yields and shrink costs.
In a statement, Jennifer Thompson of Bonduelle Americas, commented, "The potential for agronomic support that drones provide tie in with our focus on sustainably increasing production on all of our fields, year over year. Bonduelle has a unique opportunity to support its growers through investing in leading technology that we ultimately hope will help our growers produce better crop."
David MacMillan, Deveron's president and CEO, said, "Large enterprise scale operators can benefit from working with Deveron to integrate near-real time, field level data into their workflow, improving efficiencies in crop scouting and better management of input applications."
