    Hummingbird’s mission is to scale regenerative agriculture through remote sensing


    Hummingbird Technologies is an artificial intelligence SaaS platform using the latest deep learning and computer vision techniques along with proprietary algorithms to provide actionable intelligence to farmers and agri-businesses at key decision-making times in the growing season. The company analyses remote sensing data to help farmers identify early problems in their crops such as crop health, disease risk & detection, weed mapping and yield prediction as well as valuable information such as canopy coverage, plant counting, size and biomass estimation, with the objective of optimising inputs and maximising efficiency. Hummingbird began operating in 2016 and since then has covered in excess of >500,000 hectares of arable crops for farmers and agri-businesses. Their platform is utilised at key decision-making points in the growing season to allow intelligent and specific information to inform chemical or operational input decisions that decrease costs and improve outputs.

Our crop type classification models analyse geospatial and temporal trends in crop types and enable us to identify crop rotations and diversity.

This allows users to monitor these management practices at large scale, as a component of sustainable agriculture verification.

Today is #WorldSoilDay2022 which aims to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining healthy ecosystems and human well-being by addressing the growing challenges in soil management 🌽

Minimising soil disturbance and retaining crop residue on the soil surface is another vital component of #RegenerativeAgriculture, improving soil structure and mitigating carbon emissions.

Hummingbird can classify different types of tillage practice such as no-till, min-till and conventional tillage by analysing the percentage of reflectance at key wavelength bands in the near-infrared and shortwave-infrared spectral zones.
