TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 27, 2016) - Deveron UAS Corp. (CSE:DVR)(CSE:DVR.CN) ("Deveron" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that it has completed its first commercial precision agriculture drone mission in the United States. After a successful grow season in Canada, the Company is excited to report the completion of an extensive survey covering almond and pistachio orchards in the state of California.
"This is a significant step for Deveron as we continue to build the scale required to serve enterprise customers for their drone data needs," commented Deveron's President and CEO, David MacMillan.
Operating successfully in the United States is a key achievement for the Company while also highlighting the ability of our operations to scale across various regions. Commercial data flights south of the border provide revenue sources outside of the typical Canadian grow season as well as a variety of crops that have different economic margins than typical row crops like corn and soybeans.
California produces 90% of the world's almonds with roughly 1 million acres being grown in the state. The global almond industry is worth roughly $11 billion annually. The opportunity for drones to identify variability within a given orchard can provide growers with important insight, thus helping make more informed decisions with respect to operations.
