FARGO, N.D. — Botlink announces a seamless flow of actionable aerial data into the agX Platform.
This integration makes it quick and easy for farmers and agronomists to put their drone data to work in agX Compliant Applications such as SST Summit®, Sirrus®, and Adapt-N®, AgSolver®, and others.
Botlink’s XRD LTE data-streaming hardware and Botlink Capture flight control software already make it easy for farmers and agronomists to acquire images and create aerial maps of their crops. Now, aerial maps created using the Botlink platform are automatically synced with agX®, further increasing the value of the Botlink platform for agronomists and farmers.
“The quick and seamless transfer of precision aerial imagery from drones flown using Botlink to applications compatible with agX will help agronomists cover more ground accurately and efficiently,” Botlink CEO Terri Zimmerman said. “Drones that professional agronomists use today are now essential tools to improve crop efficiencies.”
Botlink’s integration with the agX platform enables them to provide their customers with an end-to-end automated crop scouting and analysis workflow. This saves farmers and agronomists multiple steps and reduces the time between image capture and analysis, meaning the data can be used while it is still timely and actionable.
Botlink’s partners are excited to offer this capability to their customers. Bret Chilcott of AgEagle, Botlink partner and manufacturer, commented: “Handling SD memory cards, manually uploading images to a computer, waiting for precision agriculture maps to be generated and then importing the image data into precision ag software is now a thing of the past.”
Botlink’s advanced technology now allows the seamless integration between drone and precision ag software. “OEMs are not the only players excited; ultimately, farmers and agronomists stand to benefit the most from our seamless integration with the agX platform,” said Alex Kube Co-Founder and CSO of Botlink.

How to Save Time and Improve Safety with Drones
These days, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or more commonly, drones, are not just for photographers and hobbyists. Today, they are quickly becoming a part of the commercial world. They are a prominent tool for many in several different industries, ranging from agriculture and law enforcement to construction—including general contractors and specialty subcontractors, like roofers. Drones are here, helping businesses save time and money, keeping their employees safe, and providing them with accurate information to better their business. Sound enticing? We think so too. However, before you think of adding a drone into your business plan, there are a few things you need to know.
9 Tips to Improve Drone Flight Time
Drones are the talk of the town these days. Everywhere you go people are buzzing about them. They’re cool. They’re fun. They let you see the world from a spectacular bird’s-eye view. As great and revolutionary as these machines are (we may be just a touch biased), we’re going to go ahead, lay it all out on the table, and address one of their few shortcomings: flight times. As far as drones have evolved over the years, many consumer models still feature a max flight time of around 20 minutes. Some offer as little as five minutes. This fallback can be annoying to those wanting to fly longer than a third of an hour (which is probably the vast majority of pilots) so we wanted to give you some helpful tips (nine of them to be exact!) on how you can keep your drone in the air longer:
