Rantizo, an agtech drone spraying startup, recently added five more states to its list of eligible operations, writes Jake Slobe at Clay & Milk. With the latest approvals, the Rantizo footprint has grown beyond the Midwest, spanning into eastern and southern states as well. The Iowa City agtech startup is now licensed and approved to provide drone spraying services in 10 states across the country.
In July, Rantizo became the first and only company approved for drone spraying in the state of Iowa. Shortly thereafter, expansion into Wisconsin occurred. Just a few weeks following that, Nebraska, Illinois, and Minnesota were added to the approved territories. Now the company has added South Dakota, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Louisiana, and Missouri to areas its approved and intends to operate within.
Arizona, Oregon, and California are expected to be approved in the near future.
