Episode 58: Agriculture And Technology with Orlando Saez
Agriculture And Technology with Orlando Saez
TableXI is now offering training for developers and products teams! For more info, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our guest today is Orlando Saez. Orlando is the co-founder and CEO of Aker, a precision crop diagnostic data and service company. We're going to talk about what that means and more generally, about how technology and agriculture intersect. We'll talk about how Orlando got into the agriculture and technology space and who his customers are and what they learn from using specialized drones to monitor their crops. It's an interesting deep dive into a part of the technology world that I, for one, did not know very much about and I hope you enjoy it.
