Companies sign intellectual property license agreement to offer joint solution for growers
Langley, BC – Ahead of AmericanHort’s Cultivate’23 event in Ohio this week, Bevo Farms announced today that it has chosen IUNU and Corvus Drones to supply computer vision and AI software for its propagation business.
Bevo Farms is an innovative supplier of choice for wholesale vegetable growers and retailers of floral plants across the whole of North America. With more than 83 acres of growing space, Bevo Farms focuses on producing the highest quality plants within a modern, hygienic environment. The team has invested heavily in automation to drive operational efficiency. This latest investment is a continuation of Bevo’s intense focus on the customer.
“At Bevo Farms, we seek excellence when it comes to producing for our customers. We always evaluate what systems and technologies can help us achieve this. Corvus Drones will allow us to image our crops more frequently than we do now, and adding IUNU’s software not only automates our manual process of counting inventory, it also gives our sales and operations teams the information they need to relay to our customers real-time. This information is invaluable to us,” said Peter Kuijvenhoven, COO of Bevo Farms.
Corvus Drones and IUNU have entered into an intellectual property license agreement, enabling the companies to launch an integrated offering for growers. The agreement provides Corvus Drones with access to portions of IUNU’s extensive patent portfolio. Corvus offers a fully automated drone solution for imaging and IUNU is the market leader in computer vision and artificial intelligence. Together, the integrated solution provides greenhouse operators a cost-effective solution for tracking inventory and early growth metrics.
“IUNU has built a world-class computer vision solution that is complementary to our autonomous drone solution and together, we can drive tremendous value for our customers, starting with Bevo Farms,” said Frans-Peter Dechering, Founder of Corvus Drones.
“We are always looking for innovative ways to capture imagery and Corvus Drones offers a solution for capturing imagery that growers are excited about. We’re thrilled to deliver an integrated solution that will drive value for Bevo Farms and others in the industry,” said Adam Greenberg, CEO of IUNU.
