Toro invests in drone mapping of golf courses

donderdag 8 februari 2018

The Toro company announced on the Orlando Golf Industry Show a minority equity investment in Greensight Agronomics, a provider of automated, agronomic intelligence technologies for turfgrass and agriculture.

'As the golf industry expands its efforts to improve play and more efficiently use water, the application and advancement of technology will play a vital role', said Philip Burkart, vice president of the Toro company's Irrigation and Lighting Businesses. 'We look forward to working with the Greensight team on ways to integrate their technologies into our Lynx Central Control system.'

The Greensight system combines automated drones and sensors, provides thermal mapping and detection analytics to help golf course professionals improve turf health with less labor. The technology enables greenkeepers to identify issues before they become visible, and achieve better outcomes with less water, fertilizer and pesticide use.

'We are excited to partner with Toro to deliver customers the ultimate in irrigation management technology', added James Peverill, CEO of GreenSight Agronomics.
