Who We Are
Once in a while, groups of people are brought together by what at first seems to be chance, but later feels like a higher calling. This is our story. In 2013, when KTS Wireless met Southern Ag Consulting their conversation led them to discussing on farm problems that were not being well addressed. When a blessing was said over the lunchtime meal, the common bond of faith instilled mutual respect, fellowship, and the desire to create solutions for growers and agronomists. Soon, the idea of High Yield Ag was born and a partnership was formed with the goal to develop and manufacture world-class hardware and software that truly served real needs.
Today, that goal still rings true. From the people on our team to our hardware and software, we’ve remained committed to serving the agriculture industry in the most effective ways possible. Furthermore, we maintain an open ear for ideas to that end.
Our Parent Companies
KTS has been a leading provider of wireless technology for over 32 years. We now offer data radio products for nearly all applications in the VHF and UHF bands. KTS Wireless has introduced two new radios with more flexibility than any available in the market today. Extended frequency and data rate agility allows a single radio to operate at 2.4 kb/s to 3.125 mbps without any hardware changes. This flexibility allows network suppliers to stock one radio to cover spectrum bands and support almost any data rate.
KTS is a leader in precision agriculture projects such as autonomous vehicles, asset tracking, vehicle to vehicle communications, wireless sensor networks and pivot irrigation. In addition, KTS Wireless Agility® family of radios provides solutions in the following areas:
- Oil and Gas Fields Upgrade of SCADA to Broadband Infrastructure, SCADA Backhaul
