As seen on Citrus Industry “Citrus Growers Tell What Technology They Use”
Representatives of two Florida citrus-growing operations recently shared ways their companies have utilized drones, electronic sensors and advanced spray technology to enhance their operations. Joby Sherrod, director of grove operations for Duda & Sons, and Timothee Sallin, co-CEO of IMG Enterprises, were participants in a virtual Florida-Israel Agriculture Innovation Summit. Duda and IMG have approximately 11,000 acres and 10,000 acres of citrus, respectively.
Sherrod reported that in September 2017, Hurricane Irma blew over some trees and caused flooding in Duda groves near LaBelle. Because of the damage, he said, the company needed to update its tree inventory. It worked with agri-tech company Aerobotics to use drones to count trees and determine the size of each tree. Multi-spectral cameras allowed the company to make determinations about tree health, he said.
