AGERpoint® Awarded a New Patent

Improving real-time yield monitoring and sensor fusion

We are excited to announce the issue by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office of a new, and third, patent on December 11, 2018 involving systems, and methods for controlling a modular system for improved real-time yield monitoring and sensor fusion of crops in an orchard.

The new patent, US 10,151,839, “SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DETERMINING CROP YIELDS WITH HIGH RESOLUTION GEO-REFERENCE SENSORS” focuses on the ability to integrate measurements from various technologies, including LiDAR, to calculate the yield of crops in real-time and associate the yield to a specific plant or region within a grower’s holdings.

This patent is related to one of AGERpoint’s additional patents, US 9,983,311, “MODULAR SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DETERMINING CROP YIELDS WITH HIGH RESOLUTION GEO-REFERENCED SENSORS” which focuses on the systems and methods for controlling a modular system for improved real-time yield monitoring and sensor fusion of crops in an orchard. This patent supports AGERpoint’s YieldTracker product which tracks harvests throughout a field, providing actual yield data row-by-row.

“This new patent, expands on our library of proprietary expertise around precise agriculture data collection techniques and associated permanent crop analytics,” said Andrew J. Nash, CEO of AGERpoint. He continued with “With every advancement in our technology, our goal is to continue to place precise actionable data in the hands of all value chain participants (food & beverage industry, growers, researchers, agronomists, insurers, industry associations, etc.) to continue to innovate and enhance decision making processes.”

AGERpoint® Awarded Two New Patents

Improving precision data capture abilities for permanent crop yield, growth, vitality, and crop predictions

We are excited to share that we were issued of two new patents involving systems and methods for monitoring agricultural products and determining crop yields with high resolution geo-referenced sensors earlier this spring!

The first of the new patents, US 9,939,417, “SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR MONITORING AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS” focuses on improving fruit tree analysis and crop predictions and monitoring fruit production, plant growth, and plant vitality. This patent supports AGERpoint’s GroveTracker product which uses LiDAR-based data capture for specific location, as well as phenotypical data such as the canopy diameter, trunk diameter, height, and density of each plant.

The second of the new patents, US 9,983,311, “MODULAR SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DETERMINING CROP YIELDS WITH HIGH RESOLUTION GEO-REFERENCED SENSORS” focuses on the systems and methods for controlling a modular system for improved real-time yield monitoring and sensor fusion of crops in an orchard. This patent supports AGERpoint’s YieldTracker product which tracks harvests throughout a field, providing actual yield data row-by-row.

“With these two patents, we are extremely excited about the opportunities to improve our already precise agriculture data collection techniques and associated permanent crop analytics,” said Andrew J. Nash, CEO of AGERpoint. He continued with “Our goal is to place precise actionable data in the hands of all value chain participants (food & beverage industry, growers, researchers, agronomists, insurers, industry associations, etc.) to continue to innovate and enhance decision making processes.”
