WHY USE A DRONE FOR AGRICULTURE?

Next-generation farming.

Precision Agriculture Is A Game Changer

For centuries, farmers have walked their fields monitoring the health of their crops. It is a time-consuming process. But this is changing. 

Agriculture drones are becoming a key driver to helping farmers increase crop production, monitor and inspect crop growth, build a richer picture of their fields, improve farming efficiency, and maximise outputs. 

Among the many benefits, drone data can be used to extract soil characteristics - including temperatures, moisture, and elevation - which helps more accurate soil sampling.

Drones and their sophisticated sensors can help farmers plan and troubleshoot irrigation systems, helping with water flow management and usage; monitor plant emergence and population to drive replanting decisions and improve crop models; and decide harvest plans by helping farmers anticipate a harvest's quality and final yield.

On-demand and high-resolution drone data is also perfect for capturing and accurately reporting events that lead to economic loss, like crop injury and reduced health. 

Drones cover areas more quickly, offer real-time insights, are more precise than traditional methods, and are non-evasive to crops.

 

In a nutshell, drones provide vital data which helps farmers and growers monitor, plan and manage their farms more effectively - saving time and money in the process.

Crop Scouting With Drones

Crop Scouting with Drones,deliver better yields thanks to real-time crop data and a host of software analytics tools now at your disposal. You no longer have to rely on costly, time-intensive methods of collecting aerial crop data such as satellite imagery or manned aircraft. Drones help you to assess plant health and spot crop variability in real time from your tailgate. This puts you in the driver's seat and allows you to lower costs and maximize crop yields along the way. Using drone mapping for crop scouting, you can measure plant health, identify crop stress, and rapidly eliminate threats to your field. But where do you start? Plant health algorithms help highlight variability and make it easier to spot crop stress, but there’s a lot of confusion out there about the differences between NDVI and VARI. And let’s face it — it’s a complicated topic. For many, it can be hard to determine where to start, or how you can start collecting actionable insights with a drone. 

  • Crop scouting. Using drones is a much quicker, simpler way of scouting crops to find irregularities and issues, so that you can reduce variability and solve problems faster.

  • Soil mapping: Identify crop variation and damage across an entire field in a matter of hours.

  • Irrigation optimization: Drone imagery helps identify irregularities in irrigation based on vegetative cover and other indicators that you can only see from overhead, so you can make adjustments and achieve irrigation uniformity.

  • Drainage repair: Fix drainage issues so that water is consistent across the crop.

  • Yield optimization: Make the right crop adjustments faster with instant data and detailed mapping.

  • Yield projections: Make accurate projections based on detailed, high-resolution mapping.

  • Nitrogen application: More easily see nitrogen deficiencies in your crops.

  • Emergence/Stand count: Determine if you need to replant in any areas.

  • Equipment malfunction detection: Catch equipment issues that result in uneven seeding, pesticides distribution or replanting or gaps in plants.

  • Pest issues: Determine if any areas are having pest issues, and assess the effectiveness of pest control strategies.
