Underground “Drone” Finds Drain Tile Problems
The Ferret “drone” from Indiana-based Davaus company will make field tile repair easy. The cordless, tracked, water-resistant device is designed to explore 4-in. tile lines or bigger.
“Finding broken or blocked tile can be labor intensive and invasive, whether using a spade or a backhoe,” says Dave Hockemeyer, Davaus, LLC. “We began by taking a prototype to farm shows and had good feedback. Now we have a short list of customers waiting for our beta units.”
This new technology established roots similar to other Davaus innovations - by striving to make American Agriculture a more efficient enterprise. As feedback from beta users is received and incorporated into the final design, the target is a simple user experience to map tile lines and “see” what is truly underground.
Davaus plans to roll this product solution out in early 2021 - but equally exciting will be complimentary technologies to the Ferret to provide related soil management data for the grower. This product suite will enable growers to evaluate their operation from the ground up - literally.
