ZedX, Inc. and IntelliCrop LLC form Strategic Alliance.

BELLEFONTE, PA, USA and Sycamore, IL, USA - December 9, 2010 - Today, ZedX, Inc. and IntelliCrop LLC announce a strategic alliance to bring together ZedX's next generation, high resolution weather data with IntelliCrop's advanced timing models for equipment applications in crop production.

The combination of high resolution models tailored to site-specific weather data ensures that applications are made at the right time with reduced management stress and minimum use of equipment, labor, and fuel. Sporadic rainfall patterns coupled with variable soil moisture properties across a region present growers, cooperatives, and agricultural service providers with a scheduling nightmare for equipment. Hundreds of man-hours are spent in surveying fields and testing soils to be sure that equipment is properly deployed at the right place and at the right time on a farm. Early deployment in a wet field can risk bogged down equipment, damaged soils, and potential erosion. Late deployment in early accessible areas results in missed opportunities for applications and an inefficient use of human and material resources.

IntelliCrop's product offerings, driven by ZedX's weather data engine, bring a new temporal dimension to precision agriculture. Variable rate applications place chemicals and nutrients at the right place in a field and IntelliCrop's timing models ensure that the applications are done on the best day and hour. Furthermore, the placement and timing of an application is made with knowledge of equipment trafficability.

The first generation of IntelliCrop's timing models will be released for the Midwestern United States in the first quarter of 2011 with an expanding geographic distribution for 2012. Large growers, cooperatives, and agricultural service providers employing IntelliCrop's models will realize immediate savings through more efficient fuel usage, equipment deployment and improved timing of fertilizer and chemical applications. The utilization of IntelliCrop's timing models with existing precision agriculture programs will take in-field production decisions to the next level.
