Precision Agriculture - Normalized Difference Vegetation Index or NDVI is a calculation of vegetation or crop health. NDVI has become one of the most effective tools to assess plant and crop health. Crops stress sooner in the Near Infrared spectrum than in the visual spectrum. NDVI data (displayed above) enables farmers to identify stressed crops in a field up to two weeks before the human eye. Aerial NDVI collection does not replace traditional human inspections such as walking your field, but its effectiveness and efficiency is unmatched.
Imagery/Mapping Overviews - Using our state of the art flight planning software we can provide you with high resolution geo-tagged imagery-based maps of your property, enabling efficient field scouting, identification of problem areas as well as crop density surveys and counts.
The American Farm Bureau Federation estimates that on average, U.S. farmers using drones to enhance crop scouting see a return on investment of $12 per acre for corn, $2.60 per acre for soybeans, and $2.30 per acre for wheat.
