Solinftec and Planet Partner to Provide Real-Time Agronomic Insights


Solinftec will now incorporate Planet satellite data into their platform to guide crop management decisions made by farmers and agricultural retailers. Solinftec’s platform provides their users with agronomic insights while on-the-job, helping to inform complex, daily farm activities and ag retailer services. Incorporating Planet imagery will add a new layer of vital data to guide a wide variety of crop management decisions, including operational efficiency and better use of inputs and agriculture compliance, which ultimately reduces their environmental impact.

“Farmers today make decisions with their entire operation in mind – constantly considering a wide variety of factors that can change day-to-day,” said Henrique Nomura, Chief Technology Officer of Solinftec. “We are focused on incorporating the latest information, which now includes data from Planet—to inform smarter decisions at key stages of the crop production cycle.”

Planet’s satellite imagery can be used to cover large growing areas, deliver field-level detail to observe spatial variability and ensure data is up to date across the season. This partnership between Solinftec and Planet helps bridge the gap between data sources in the cloud and agricultural decisions on the ground.

“Planet’s imagery is helping to enable Solinftec to scale globally as they expand their digital agriculture solutions to reach farmers in more than 10 countries and growing,” states director of business development at Planet, Zara Khan. “This partnership will provide invaluable data to farmers allowing them to track historical trends and inform real-time decisions for crop health monitoring and nutrient management.”

Solinftec and Planet’s global partnership centers around real-time insights – a factor that differentiates both companies within their respective industries.

“Real-time support for smart decision-making is in our DNA,” said Guilherme Guine Pinto Ferreira, head of product, Brazil. “That’s one of the characteristics that immediately drew us to Planet. Our customers expect frequency without sacrificing quality and that’s what they get with this partnership.”
