Imagery as a Service

End to end capture, processing, and delivery of high-resolution spectral imagery. We help growers make important resource allocation decisions by showing them real-time plant health throughout the growing season. No upfront cost or hardware to buy, pay only for the data. Currently operating in California and Australia.

Our customers see tremendous return on investment


What the eye sees – 180 acre almond orchard

Actionable inefficiencies identified by water stress imagery

water optimization

Grower spent $3,200 on 160 acres of water stress imagery. Irrigation issues highlighted and addressed led to 25% yield improvement on 40 acres of the field, worth $120K net of capital expenses (or an return on investment of over 30x).

Quote

“For the past two years Ceres Imaging has collaborated with UC Cooperative Extension and Blake Sanden on a very data-intensive almond water use (ET) trial. This mutual collaboration has provided UCCE and the almond industry with whole orchard comprehensive data that would be impossible to collect from the ground. In turn, individual tree and plot ground data collected by UCCE researchers has been used by Ceres to verify and improve their calculation of crop water status.”
