Soil and field analysis: We can produce precise 3-D maps for early soil analysis, used in planning seed planting patterns. After planting, our drone driven soil analysis provides data for irrigation and nitrogen level management.
Crop monitoring: Huge fields and low efficiency in crop monitoring together create farmings largest obstacle. monitoring challenge are exacerbated by increasingly unpredictable weather conditions, which drive risk and field maintenance costs. In the past, satellite imagery offered the most advanced form of monitoring. But, it had some drawbacks. Images had to be ordered in advance, could be taken only once a day and were imprecise. Lets not forget it was extremely costly. Today using drone technology all that is in the past. Drones can show the precise development of a crops and reveal production inefficiencies, enabling better crop management.
Health assessment: Its essential to assess crop health and spot bacterial or fungal infections. By scanning a crop using both visible and near infrared light, drone carried devices can identify which plants reflect different amounts of green light and NIR light. This information can produce multi spectral images that track changes in plants and indicate their health. As all farmers know a speedy response can save an entire orchard. In addition, as soon as a sickness is discovered, farmers can apply and monitor remedies more precisely. These two possibility increase a plants ability to overcome disease. And in the case of crop failure, the farmer will be able to document the losses more efficiently for insurance claims.
