The New Standard of Crop Intelligence

Taranis’ AcreForward™ platform provides ag retailers with a better understanding of what’s happening in every acre and new ways to unlock revenue opportunities.


We scan your fields throughout the season and gather data at submillimeter resolution.


Our system delivers actionable crop insights based on powerful AI and agronomy expertise.


Visualize and prioritize the needs in your fields and engage growers for the right course of action.

Taranis AcreForward™ Intelligence provides insights and trends, stand counts, weed pressure, disease detection, insect pressure, and field health, along with NDVI and precipitation levels. With this data easily accessible and correlated, advisors can accelerate their decision-making, having a better understanding of how inputs, hybrids, and other variables come together for the best possible outcome for growers.

Taranis makes sustainability and soil health insights readily available to ag retailers and growers through an innovative and practical carbon monitoring and estimation service. New insights, including trends in stocks of soil organic matter, will help advisors provide growers with easier access to subsidies and support the adoption of sustainable farming practices.

AcreForward is pushing the boundaries beyond any technology and service available to ag retailers today. This is beyond scouting. It is about understanding what the acre is telling you and fostering collaboration with your growers so that they can be successful.
