The Human Constraint with Taranis SmartScout

The Human Constraint with Taranis SmartScout

In 2019, the average crop consultant intern summer salary was $13,000. A full-time consultant salary ranges from $38,000 to $100,000. If done correctly, the average crop consultant can scout 2000-3000 acres a week. Having all your information in one user friendly platform eliminates the human constraint and allows you to scout and compare hundreds of thousands of acres at a time. It eliminates the resources needed to manually scout all acres and make decisions in a timely manner to reach top end yield. Retailers with Taranis CONNECT can get more knowledge, more traction, and more acres covered than ever before with this turn key service and artificial intelligence technology at their fingertips.

Taranis CONNECT app is the best tool on the market for data collection and integrated threat management in the field. Taranis detects problematic hot spots and prioritizes them for further investigation. The instant analysis makes it easy to see infestation levels, trends, action thresholds and even decide on more localized treatment applications without ever setting foot into the field. The user can view and analyze the reports, photos, voice memos, and areas of interest straight from the Taranis web app and decide on a plan of action for the area of interest. Agronomists or consultants can then go to the field with the grower and use the mobile app that directs them to the specific threat locations.

For producers and service providers, it is not enough to just have threat data; they need to know how to act on specific threats. The real power of image data comes from actionability. Converting image data into field events such as scouting and sampling with just a few clicks has never been easier with Taranis’ integrated platform and mobile app workflow. Taranis’ platform streamlines the image data workflow, allows for complimentary data sources to be leveraged, and is supported by an eager customer support team.
