Garuda Robotics has partnered with Wild Asia to deliver spatial analytics to smaller oil palm producers in Malaysia. The solutions offered include the digital mapping of farm plots (visual, near infra-red) and aerial data analytics (NDVI and tree-counts).
These insights can be combined with Farm Information and other digital spatial information within a GIS (geographic system) to allow for better analysis and understanding of the farm performance. Our solution extends to making these images and analysis available via online platforms such as Garuda Plex, that allow individual farmers or group managers to access the information.
The solution we are developing is designed to be affordable to smaller producers but can be scaled-up to offer enterprise solutions for larger estates. With Garuda Robotics, we are also able to build, equip, train field teams to manage the digital workflow at the operational level.
