In agriculture, it’s all about understanding what’s happening in the field, in order to increase yield and improve efficiency. Aerial mapping gives growers and agronomists detailed insights about crops that would not be noticeable on foot or by traditional land-based methods.
Data collected can be analysed and integrated into modern agricultural software, create zonal areas and prescribe specific data that can be used in GPS guided machinery.
- CROP SCOUTING
Using a SUA is a much quicker, simpler way of scouting crops to find irregularities and issues, so that you can reduce variability and solve problems faster.
- SOIL MAPPING
Identify crop variation and damage across an entire field in a matter of hours.
- IRRIGATION OPTIMISATION
SUA imagery helps identify irregularities in irrigation based on vegetative cover and other indicators that you can only see from overhead, so you can make adjustments and achieve irrigation uniformity.
- DRAINAGE REPAIR
Fix drainage issues so that water is consistent across the crop.
- YIELD OPTIMISATION
Make the right crop adjustments faster with instant data and detailed mapping.
- YIELD PROJECTIONS
Make accurate projections based on detailed, high-resolution mapping.
- NITROGEN APPLICATION
More easily see nitrogen deficiencies in your crops.
- EMERGENCE/STAND COUNT
Determine if you need to replant in any areas.
- EQUIPMENT MALFUNCTION DETECTION
Catch equipment issues that result in uneven seeding, pesticides distribution or replanting or gaps in plants.
- PEST ISSUES
Determine if any areas are having pest issues, and assess the effectiveness of pest control strategies.
