Drone imagery

Drone imagery provides a highly accurate remote data layer, down to as little as 2.5cm. This is predominately used within higher value crops such as potatoes, carrots, pumpkins, lettuce, cabbage and broccoli. With the ability to receive precise plant counts, this can help to achieve an accurate yield estimation, assist with harvesting efficiently, as well as monitoring crop performance throughout the growing season.

Service use:

  • Plant health – determine crop variation, identify zones, variable rate from biomass, blackgrass mapping, variable rate glyphosate, crop establishment.
  • Plant count – establishment, crop variation, count comparison, seed viability.
  • Plant size – yield prediction, crop variation, optimise harvesting, ability to forward sell crop more accurately.
  • Farm aerial imagery
  • Weed mapping
