In Delaware, Granular and Planet announced an expanded global partnership to deliver digital agriculture software solutions for farmers. The three-year agreement will integrate Planet’s industry-leading daily, global satellite imagery data into Granular’s farm-management software suite – powering enhanced analytics tools that will help farmers manage risk and increase yields.

“Planet operates the world’s largest fleet of satellites and is quickly advancing its image frequency and quality,” said Sid Gorham, Granular co-founder and CEO. “Our team of data scientists have built tools that translate Planet’s imagery into actionable insights on the health of crops throughout the growing season. Our farmer customers access these insights via Granular’s easy-to-use mobile applications – enabling farmers to tap into the power of a global satellite network right from their phone.”

Under the expanded partnership, Granular will license and integrate Planet’s daily feed of satellite imagery into its farm-management software, beginning with its industry-leading agronomy offering, Encirca Services.
