New collaborative agreement

Pessl Instruments GmbH signed a collaborative agreement with Hiber

Pessl Instruments GmbH enters into collaboration with Hiber to supply high-end weather stations for remote areas.

Pessl Instruments GmbH, a leading manufacturer of advanced agricultural technology devices under METOS brand, signed an exclusive collaborative agreement with Hiber, nanosatellite constellation provider. The goal of the cooperation is to assure the usage of high-end tools for precision farming in every field.

In 35 years Pessl Instruments managed to reach into almost every corner of the world. The company provides a comprehensive package for precision agriculture, including both hardware and software solutions. They offer services ranging from weather monitoring and forecast, disease monitoring, pest control, irrigation management, nutrition management, to work planning, and more.

“Our tools for informed decision making are supported with the widest range of communication options but we have faced some difficulties to reach the remotest parts of the World. We want to overcome the last location limitations and bring the technology-based agricultural approaches closer to everyone,” explained Gottfried Pessl, CEO and founder of Pessl Instruments.

With nanosatellites that cover 100% of Earth’s surface, Hiber brings access to IoT connectivity to the exact areas Pessl Instruments is aiming to reach and therefore help them achieve their goal.

“We see a lot of promise in the collaboration between Hiber and Pessl Instruments. Pessl Instruments is a renowned provider of agricultural sensors, with a long track record of helping producers, traders, and many others. Hiber enables Pessl Instruments to scale that experience to the entire world. Together, we make sure that one can monitor climate, weather and soil globally, no matter how remote,” concluded Laurens Groenendijk, Hiber’s Managing Director.

Assisting farmers and providing transparency in the agricultural supply chain is what drives these two newly formed partners, and therefore we believe this will be a fruitful cooperation with benefits for everyone directly or indirectly involved.
