Precision agriculture uses observations and measurements to make crop management decisions based on inter and intra-field variability in crops.
The development GPS and GNSS systems enabled the practice of precision agriculture. The farmer's ability to locate their precise position in a field allows for the creation of maps of the spatial variability of factors like crop yield, terrain features/topography, organic matter content, moisture levels, nitrogen levels, and many more as the technologies develop. With low altitude, high resolution imaging, in visible and near infrared bands, small unmanned aircraft can provide timely, accurate information to make effective crop management decisions.
Aerial mapping for Biomass and Plant count
Currently our platforms support visible range cameras that are very effective for monitoring plant height, overall biomass and plant counts. We are currently developing a platform integrating the MicaSense Sequoia sensor for multispectral imaging applications allowing you to map up to 125 acres in a single flight. This sensor is optimal for NDVI generation and will provide actionable data or discreet detection of reflectance variation for applications such as algae bloom monitoring.
