GreenSight Agronomics (Boston)
This Boston startup is developing proprietary cloud and drone technology that helps “golf courses, farms, and property managers [save] $2.8 billion annually through large reductions in water and inputs,” according to its Crunchbase page. The idea is that its drone automatically lifts up every day into the air and takes images of the land and then sends those images to an online platform on a mobile device for automated turf monitoring and analysis. The service, which is expected to launch in May 2016, will be provided through a subscription that is focused on ease-of-use.
