New collaboration Corvus Drones &

Drones and data: automatic monitoring and smart integration increases lettuce growers profits and Corvus Drones launched their new collaboration at GreenTech 2023 in Amsterdam. In this collaboration, the data files and photos collected by the fully autonomous Corvus Drone will be made insightful in the platform. The collaboration starts with covered lettuce cultivation in greenhouses.

Structural staff shortages, nursery operations becoming progressively complex, and the increasing acreage of greenhouses every year are just a few of the current challenges greenhouse horticulture is facing. A transformative technology like drones is becoming a more common solution in this day and age. Through the automation of various tasks, drones will make the lives of growers easier in more ways than one. Corvus Drones fly fully autonomously through the greenhouse and are able to collect data and photos regarding the following topics: crop behavior, diseases and pests, harvest prognosis, germination, growth, and yield and deviations. The following step is to retrieve this data and give growers easy and effective insight into the condition and growth of their crops. This is where comes in.

With this new collaboration, Corvus Drones and are making the important next step towards fully autonomous flying drones and converting the collected data into useful information for the grower. The goal is to link the growth data of lettuce to climate data inside the growing environment in order to centralize, visualize, analyze, and eventually optimize the growing strategy.

Co-founder of Corvus Drones, Frans-Peter Dechering: "Data-driven cultivation is embracing every grower. Manual data collection is increasingly a thing of the past. And how do you combine data sources and avoid a data jungle? That is the core of the cooperation between Corvus Drones and Drones collect crop data fully automatically, and in the dashboard, it is presented. First up is Corvus Lettuce, the lettuce application, where growth and, for example, disease detection are insightful. "

Martin van Tol, Sales Manager at, emphasizes the importance of this innovation, in particular for the future of horticulture: "I believe that the collaboration between and Corvus Drones exemplifies the power of synergy. By combining's expertise in data-driven growing with Corvus Drones' cutting-edge drone solutions, innovation takes flight in the horticultural sector. Together, we are building a better future for growers by achieving efficiency, sustainability, and higher yields for lettuce growers worldwide."

At Greentech, Corvus Drones and will introduce an integration for lettuce cultivation. This integration will be visible at the Corvus Drones booth. To be able to experience this unique innovation, please visit us at booth 05.413.
