Precision Agriculture

In last decade, new technologies such as drones, autonomous tractors and remote sensors have transformed traditional agriculture into precision agriculture, allowing everyone from small-scale farmers to large corporate entities to efficiently monitor crops and create prediction models to project yields and reduce costs of farming. Drones, when equipped with multi and hyperspectral cameras, are capable of capturing plant health and creating detailed reports on crop condition, providing an improved way for farmers to manage crops.

Use cases:

  1. Crop Yield Potential
    Drones can help identify crop stress sooner and analyze weather, soil, and field data to help farmers create the best decisions to optimize yield potential.
  2. Crop Scouting
    Manual inspection of large acreage row crops can be time-consuming and operationally exhaustive. Our drone services automate this process to help farmers spend time and resources elsewhere.
  3. Crop Monitoring
    Time-series animations can show the precise development of a crop and reveal production inefficiencies, enabling better crop management.
  4. Crop Spraying
    Drones can scan the ground and spray the correct amount of liquid, modulating distance from the ground and spraying in real-time for even coverage. Crop spraying needs to be synchronized with UAV imaging, processing, and automated analytics capabilities in order to address the affected areas or plants with precision.
  5. Crop Insurance Management
    Precise documentation of damages followed by precise estimation of reduction in estimated yields can be used in insurance procedures.
  6. Soil Quality Mapping
    Assessing soil condition in an actual 3D mapping of the terrain with precise soil color coverage. This helps to assess the soil quality as well as the moisture and water flow precisely. After generating precise 3D maps for soil, planting can be planned, and nutrient status can be analyzed for further operations.
  7. Irrigation Monitoring
    Drones with multispectral or thermal sensors can identify which parts of a field are dry or need improvements.
  8. Flying Seeds / Planting
    UAVs can shoot seeds with nutrients in the soil with an average uptake of 75%, reducing costs of planting.
