The team behind the wireless underground soil monitoring solution
Soil Scout has announced a new equal distribution partnership with U.S.-based GreenSight, a leading provider of autonomous aerial intelligence services for golf courses. The technology partnership will give golf course superintendents and sports field managers a real-time understanding of how to create optimal above and below ground conditions while increasing efficiency on water and nutrient usage.
“Understanding what happens is critical if fields are to reach their true potential,” said Soil Scout CEO Jalmari Talola. “When it comes to greenkeepers, their challenge is real – to maintain extremely high-quality surfaces over large areas while facing pressure to cut water consumption and act in an environmentally sustainable way.
According to Talola the partnership will give turfgrass managers instant insight into what is happening below their soils. Those insights will be combined in GreenSight’s TurfCloud platform with cutting-edge machine vision analysis captured by drone-mounted sensors.
The equal partnership will see Soil Scout acting as a reseller of the GreensSight TurfCloud product line in Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, with GreenSight acting as Soil Scout reseller and distributor in the United States.
“GreenSight is excited to be able to offer our industry-leading product, TurfCloud, through the Soil Scout Company. Being able to add Soil Scout to our dashboard will greatly add to the data already being captured,” said GreenSight CEO James Peverill. “We look forward to helping their customers manage their soils more efficiently and improve their facilities across the world. We’re equally excited to be able to distribute their intuitive soil condition sensors to our growing customer base.”
