CHS Inc. on Aug. 3 announced a partnership with TerrAvion under which the latter will offer its aerial imagery and data solutions to CHS’s producer customers. The partnership is expected to help CHS’s producer customers to make informed and strategic decisions on where to allocate resources to maximize crop yield.

Founded in 2013, TerrAvion delivers real-time aerial imagery services for agriculture organizations that provide detail and timely information on the conditions of every acre, from small family farms to large agribusinesses. Every week during the growing season, TerrAvion said it takes hundreds of low-altitude flights to capture birds-eye views of farms, from which producers may plan scouting, management activities and interventions.

“TerrAvion is the ideal partner for CHS as they share our mission of empowering producers with the solutions they need to optimize yield and feed the world,” said Blaine Schmidt, Regional YieldPoint/Precision Specialist, CHS Inc. “TerrAvion’s impact on producers all over the West Coast made it clear that they could give a similar boost in yield to our customers in the Great Plains. TerrAvion’s aerial images give producers a real-time picture of what’s happening in the field, enabling them to take informed and intelligent action that drives higher yields and business success.”
